1 cup warm water
1 tbsp white sugar
1 yeast packet or 2 1/2 tsp of yeast
1 tsp salt
2 tsp oil
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 - 1 3/4 cups white flour
This recipe makes one large pizza. This is easily doubled, tripled... except 1 yeast packet will do for two pizzas. I just add 1/2 tsp more yeast per pizza.
By hand: Start by dissolving sugar in hot water in large bowl. When the water feels like comfortable bath water - add yeast. Let stand until yeast is dissolved and kind of bubbly - about 2 minutes. Then add oil and salt. Stir in 1 cup wheat flour, then one cup white. Knead last 1/2 -3/4 cup flour into dough with floured hands. The dough ball should be nice and soft.
Stand Mixer: Start by dissolving sugar in hot water in your mixing bowl. When the water feels like comfortable bath water - add yeast. Let stand until yeast is dissolved and kind of bubbly about 2 minutes. Then add oil and salt. Mix on low with dough hooks and add in flour a cup at a time (wheat first), keep adding flour until soft dough ball pulls away from sides and forms a nice ball (about 2 1/2 cups total). Stop mixing and remove dough hooks and reshape into dough ball.
The rest: Take dough ball and set in bowl with plastic wrap on top in a warm area to rise for 15 minutes. Dough will double in size. Punch down and shape for your your pizza or bread sticks. Top with fav sauce, cheese, and toppings. Bake at 400 degrees on greased pizza pan. We have this every Friday night so this is from memory. Let me know how it works out for you.
(For sauce: We take on 4 oz can of tomato sauce or 1/2 can of tomato paste with added water, and add tsp sugar, tsp oil, tsp lemon juice, tsp pizza seasoning (mix of dried basil, oregano, and parsley), 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp salt...)
