- 1 pkg active dry yeast
- 1 c warm water (105 to 115 degrees F)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 to 3 1/2 C unbleached all-purpose flour
- ½ c whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp salt
Sprinkle the yeast over the water. Stir until the yeast is dissolved. Stir in the oil.
In a large bowl, combine 3 cups of the all-purpose flour, the whole wheat flour, and the salt. Add the yeast mixture and stir until a soft dough forms. Knead 10 minutes, adding more flour if necessary, or until the dough is smooth and elastic.
Lightly oil a large bowl. Add the dough, turning it once to oil the top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour, or until doubled in bulk.
Divide the dough in half. Punch the dough down to eliminate air bubbles. Shape and bake the pizzas.
I bake my deep dish pizza at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes.
