Weeknight Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza Crust from Well Plated
Showing 2 out of 4 Steps
As you mix, slowly add the remaining 1 cup all purpose flour, adding just enough to make a soft dough. Mix the dough on medium-low speed (or knead by hand on a well-floured board) for 8-10 minutes, until smooth and elastic, sprinkling it with flour as needed to keep it from sticking to the bowl. Spray a large, clean mixing bowl with cooking spray, then place the dough in the bowl and turn it once to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow it to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Place the water, yeast, olive oil, and honey in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook. (If the bowl is cold, start with warmer water so it remains at least 100 degrees F when you add the yeast.) Add the 2 cups white whole wheat flour, 1 cup of the all-purpose flour, the vital wheat gluten (if using), and the salt. Mix on medium-low speed. (If you do not have a stand mixer, complete this step in a regular mixing bowl and use a wooden spoon to combine the ingredients.)
