Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Pizza Crust

3 cups water (110F)
8 cups whole wheat flour
1 tbls buttermilk (whey or kefir)
1/4 cup honey
2 tbls active dry yeast
1/2 cup water (110F)
1 tsp honey
1 tbls salt

Recipe Directions for Homemade Pizza Crust

  1. Soaking: Combine 8 cups of flour, 3 cups of water, 1 Tbls whey or kefir, and 1/4 cup honey (adding the honey at this step helps keep the dough moist). Cover and leave on counter for 12-24 hours.

  2. After soaking, activate the yeast in the remaining 1/2 cup of water and 1 tsp of honey.

  3. Combine activated yeast, salt and soaked mixture. You may need to add more flour to make a moist but firm dough.

  4. Knead for 5-10 minutes. Let rise for thicker pizza dough.

  5. Divide into four sections for four crusts (each will make a 15in crust).

  6. Turn oven on to 500 degrees (if you are baking right away). Bake for 10-15 minutes.
