READY IN: 1hr 50mins




  • Place the warm water, honey, and olive oil in a cup and sprinkle with the yeast.
  • Let stand for 10 minutes Place the whole wheat flour, salt, and 1 cup of all purpose flour in a food processor.
  • Process for about 10 seconds, or until combined.
  • Add the yeast mixture, pulsing to combine.
  • Add enough of the remaining flour to form a soft, slightly moist dough.
  • If the mixture is too sticky, sprinkle with a little more flour and process it in; if it is too dry, add a little more water.
  • Process the dough for 45 seconds Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until smooth, about 1 minute.
  • Transfer the dough to a bowl.
  • Drizzle with a little olive oil and turn the dough over to coat lightly with oil.
  • cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  • (If you are not baking the pizza right away, refrigerate the dough after it rises. It can be kept overnight) When ready to bake, heat the oven to 450F.
  • Lightly oil a heavy 12-14" round pan or 15X10" jelly roll pan and sprinkle with cornmeal Punch down the dough and place it in the pan.
  • Stretch the dough to fit the pan, building up the edges slightly.
  • Cover with topping and bake until the pizza is browned and crusty, usually 15-25 minutes.
  • Spray the bottom of the oven with water 3 times during the first 5-10 minutes of baking time.
