Recipe by thebronwen
READY IN: 45mins




  • Place 3/4 C of the flour and all of the cornmeal, wheat bran, oats, yeast, and salt in a large bowl, and stir to mix well.
  • Place the water or milk and the honey in a small saucepan, and heat until very warm (125 F to 130 F.) Add the water mixture to the flour mixture and stir for 1 minute.
  • Stir in enough of the remaining flour, 2 Tablespoons at a time, to form a soft dough.
  • Sprinkle 2 Tablespoons of the remaining flour over a flat surface and turn the dough onto the surface.
  • Knead the dough for 5 minutes, gradually adding just enough of the remaining flour to form a smooth, satiny ball.
  • (Be careful not to make the dough too stiff, or it will be hard to roll out.) Coat a large bowl with nonstick cooking spray and place the ball of dough in the bowl.
  • Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place for about 35 minutes, or until doubled in size.
  • When the dough has risen, punch it down, shape it into a ball, and turn it onto a floured surface.
  • The dough is now ready for shaping, topping, and baking.
  • To make pizza dough in bread machine: Place all of the dough ingredients except for 2 Tablespoons of the bread flour in the machine's bread pan.
  • (Do not heat the water or milk.) Turn the machine on to the"rise","dough", or"manual" setting so that the machine will mix, knead, and let the dough rise once.
  • Check the dough about 5 minutes after the machine has started.
  • If the dough seems too sticky, add more of the remaining flour, a Tablespoon at a time.
  • When the dough is ready, remove it from the machine and proceed to shape, top, and bake it as directed in the recipe.
