Whole-Wheat Pizza Dough

This foolproof dough recipe makes enough for three 1-lb pizzas. (A typical recipe calls for one pound.) Wrap the leftover dough balls in plastic and freeze for up to three months. You can substitute spelt flour, a lower-glycemic alternative, for the total combined amount of flour and wheat germ.

Ingredients

  • 1 envelope dry active yeast
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting surface
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for bowl

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Dissolve yeast in water in a large bowl and let stand, 5 minutes. Stir in 2 cups all-purpose flour and salt. Stir in whole-wheat flour and wheat germ, then remaining all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough comes away from bowl but is still sticky.

  2. Step 2

    Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface, and knead, until it's smooth and elastic and springs back slowly when poked, about 10 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Place in a lightly oiled bowl, turn to coat. Cover, and let rise in a warm place until it doubles in volume, about 2 1/2 hours.

  4. Step 4

    Cut dough into six portions. Roll into balls, cover, and let rest 30 minutes before stretching for pizza.

    I LOVE this recipe...it is so easy and so tasty. I have made this several times over the last month because I have two sons who love pizza and it freezes and unfreeze a well. It has a great taste (I have added dried rosemary for a variation). It crisps well in the oven. It is a perfectly delicious foundation for any pizza toppings!
