2 Pizza Doughs

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large mixing bowl, dissolve sugar in warm water. Sprinkle yeast over water and let stand for 10 minutes or until foamy. Meanwhile, combine flours and salt.
  2. Stir oil into foamy yeast mixture. Stir in about half the flour mixture. Add more flour, mixing until dough can be gathered into a slightly sticky ball (you may need a little more or less than 3 cups of flour).
  3. On lightly floured surface, kneed dough for about 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic, adding more flour as necessary to prevent dough from stick to counter. Cut dough in half; cover with waxed paper and let rest for 10 minutes.
  4. On lightly floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll each piece of dough into a 12-inch circle, about 1/4 inch thick.
  5. Transfer rounds to 2 lightly oiled pizza pans or baking sheets. Carefully, using fingers, stretch dough into large circles.
  6. Let dough rise for about 15 minutes before adding toppings. For a thicker crust let dough rise for 30 minutes.
  7. Add toppings just before baking.
  8. Makes two 12 inch pizza rounds.
