Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast*
  • 1 and ¼ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons room temperature orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¾ cups warm water
  • *use 3 teaspoons instant yeast if not rising overnight
  1. In a large measuring cup, mix the warm water, yeast, orange juice and honey. Allow to sit for 5 minutes just to be sure if your yeast is alive and well (or if you know it's alive, skip this step and mix everything together).
  2. In a great big bowl, mix the white whole wheat flour, salt and olive oil. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.
  3. Knead dough for 5 minutes in the mixer, bread machine or your hands. Allow to rest and rise covered for 30 minutes.
  4. At this point, put it in the fridge and let it rise overnight (if using 2 tsp yeast) or later in the day (using 3 tsp yeast).
  5. Remove 1-2 hours before using (or at least 20 minutes).
  6. Preheat oven to 450 degrees preferably with the pizza stone inside.
  7. Shape the dough onto parchment paper. Add toppings. Bake 15 minutes.
