Honey-Wheat Pizza Crust
- 1 1/4 cups warm water approximately 110 degrees
- 1 package dry yeast
- 1 tablespoon mild honey I used wildflower honey
- 3 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour I used unrefined King Arthur brand
- 1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons cornmeal
- Combine in a small bowl water, yeast, and honey. Allow to rest for 5 minutes. In a medium bowl whisk together flour and salt until incorporated. Combine olive oil to yeast mixture and slowly add to flour and salt, stir until it forms a ball.
- Lightly flour work surface, turn dough out and knead approximately 5 minutes or until smooth. Mist a medium bowl with olive oil, add dough and turn to coat all sides with oil. Cover bowl with a kitchen towel and allow to rise until doubled in size, approximately one hour.
- Sprinkle work surface with 1 tablespoon cornmeal, divide dough in half and roll to 1/4" thick into two 12" round shapes. Brush the top of each dough with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle each with the remaining 1 tablespoon cornmeal.
- Place the oiled side of the dough on a pre-heated griddle. Brush top of each dough with the remaining olive oil. Cook until bottoms are lightly browned, approximately 5 minutes. Turn dough over and cook until browned. Remove crusts and allow to cool until ready to add pizza sauce and toppings.
