Whole Wheat Pizza Dough (using a bread machine)

  • 1-1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. warm water (13 ounces)
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 Tbsp. honey or other sweetner
  • 2 cups plus 2 Tbsp. whole wheat bread flour
  • 2 cups unbleached bread flour
  • 2 Tbsp. vital wheat gluten
  • 1-1/2 tsp. instant yeast (or 2-1/4 tsp. active yeast, the amount in one package of yeast)

Directions:

  • Place the ingredients in the bread machine.
  • Select the dough cycle and press start.
  • Check after 5 minutes of kneading; adjust the amount of water or flour to produce a soft ball.
  • When the dough cycle ends, remove half the dough.

This recipe makes enough for 2 - 14 inch thin pizzas, so repeat the following instructions with the second half of the dough.

  • On a floured surface, shape the dough into an 8-inch diameter disk; continue flattening to about 12 inches in diameter.
  • Let rest for several minutes; resume stretching to 14 inches.
  • Sprinkle 1 Tbsp. cornmeal on pan, move dough to the pan, brush with olive oil, add sause and toppings, except cheese, and bake at 450 degrees F. for 7-8 minutes.
  • Add the cheese, bake an additional 2-3 minutes until cheese melts and the edge of the crust is lightly browned.
