“This makes one yummy 10" crust and it has a little sweetness to it from proofing with maple syrup rather than honey or sugar. For a 12" crust, simply add 25% more of each ingredient. NOTE: Actual baking time not accounted for here, cooking time is just the rising time, I have a suggested one posted but you can bake however you like.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the maple syrup in the water in a large bowl and dissolve the yeast in it. Let it proof for 10-15 minutes or until nice and foamy.
  2. Add the oil and salt.
  3. Knead the flours in until nice and elasticy, about 5 minutes.
  4. Loosely cover with parchment paper or a dish towel and let rise for 20-30 minutes.
  5. Simply roll out into a 10" pie plate greased with cooking spray or a little olive oil. I suggest poking some holes into the dough with a fork after rolling out, then baking for 7-8 minutes at 400°F Then add your sauce, cheese, toppings, etc. and bake for another 10-20 minutes depending on how much you put on it, then turn on the broiler for 5 minutes for a nice crispy crust and top.
