Eating Well's Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by greysangel

Using half whole wheat and half all purpose flour yields a light crust with a distinctive nutty taste. Quick rising yeast shortens the rising time to just 10 minutes, making wholesome homemade pizza a possibility for busy weeknights. A food processor makes fast work of mixing the dough, but you can also use a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or a little elbow grease to do it by hand. Whichever method you choose, add enough liquid to the dry ingredients to make a soft dough. If kneading by hand, knead for about 10 minutes. The dough will keep, in a plastic bag coated with cooking spray, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

So, I made the dough and got to the end of the recipe before it was cooked. I just discovered that this recipe has no baking instructions.
