Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Place oiled side of dough on 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.

    Does each pizza yield 8 servings? Or do the two together make 8 servings? Thanks!

    Do you ever skip the browning in a pan and just add the ingredients into the raw dough to stick straight into the oven?

      Shelly, We haven’t tried that yet but it should work fine, just don’t overload with ingredients. 🙂
