Semi Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Trouble's favorite food group is pizza. I guarantee if he is asked what he wants for dinner he will always say pizza... or candy. This recipe is my attempt at a semi-healthy pizza crust.

What you need:
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1  1/2 cups warm water (around 110 degrees)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2  1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

What you do:
In a bowl, dissolve yeast and brown sugar in the warm water (not so hot you can't touch it). Let sit for 10 minutes or until you see some life (little bubbles).

Stir the salt and oil into the yeast solution.

Mix in the flour. I use the hook attachment on my mixer.

Place the dough into an oiled bowl and cover with saran wrap. Place in a warm spot. I let the oven get a little warm then turn it off.

Let the dough rise until it has doubled. (This should take about 1 hour).

Punch down the dough and allow to rise another 30 minutes.

Turn dough out onto an olive oil greased pan or several small pans. Press dough to cover the bottom of the pan.

Let dough rest in the pan while you preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Pre-bake the pizza crust for about 10 minutes before topping the pizza.

Top the pre-baked crust with your favorite toppings. Bake until the cheese and crust are golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.







 Buon Appetito Trouble!
