Print Recipe


  • ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 ½ teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 2 cups white whole-wheat flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Stir the yeast, water, and honey together in a small bowl and let sit for 3 to 5 minutes until the top gets frothy and bubbly.
  • Mix the flour and salt together, add the yeast mixture, and the oil.
  • Mix well with a wooden spoon.
  • Mix well until the dough forms a ball in the center of the bowl. Cover and let rise for 2 hours or until doubled in size.
  • Flour your surface well.
  • Place the dough on the surface and knead for 2-3 minutes.
  • Shape into 2 balls, cover and let rest for 30 minutes.
  • Shape into pizzas, top, and bake at 475 degrees for about 12 minutes or your desired doneness.


If your yeast mixture doesn't bubble, start over with a fresh batch of yeast.
If needed, work more flour into the dough as you knead if you find it too sticky.
