Recipe by Iowahorse

From the Los Angeles Times, about 20 years ago. I put an hour down as prep time, but really that's not taking into account setting/rising etc. Just giving ya a heads up, but you'll see as you read the recipe, that yes, it takes longer. Support Our Grain Farmers!


  1. Sprinkle yeast into warm water in large bowl and stir until dissolved.
  2. Add salt.
  3. Combine all-purpose and whole wheat flours and add enough to yeast mixture to make stiff dough.
  4. Turn out on floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Shape into ball.
  6. Place in greased bowl and turn to grease top. Cover and let rise until doubled in bulk, about 1-1/2 hours.
  7. Punch down and let rise again until doubled, about 30 minutes. Divide dough into 8 pieces and roll each out on lightly floured surface to very thin circle about 9 inches in diameter.
