Recipe Ingredients for Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons water, (105-115F)
1 package active dry yeast, (2 1/4 teaspoons)
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup ww flour
1 cup flour
2 tbsp flour (for dusting)
2 tablespoons cornmeal

Recipe Directions for Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

  1. Stir water, yeast, sugar and salt in a large bowl; let stand until the yeast has dissolved, about 5 minutes. Stir in whole-wheat flour, bread flour (or all-purpose flour) and cornmeal until the dough begins to come together.

  2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. (Alternatively, mix the dough in a food processor. Process until it forms a ball, then process for 1 minute to knead.)

  3. Place the dough in an oiled bowl and turn to coat. (To make individual pizzas, see Variation.) C over with a clean kitchen towel and set aside in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  4. Individual variation: The dough can be turned into 4 or 6 personal-size pizzas. After kneading, divide the dough into 4 or 6 equal balls (I'd suggest 4- I made 6 and they are pretty small). Brush with oil and place 3 inches apart on a baking sheet. Cover and set aside until doubled in size, about 1 hour. Roll each portion into a 6-to-8-inch circle.

  5. To store dough you aren't using now, prepare through Step 3, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Or tightly wrap the unrisen dough in oiled plastic wrap and freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost the dough in the refrigerator overnight. Let refrigerated (or previously frozen) dough stand at room temperature for 1 hour before using.

  6. Preheat oven to 450 with a pizza stone in the oven.

  7. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out the dough on the parchment paper. Cover with toppings. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes, of until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted.
