Pizza Crust

This is a very basic pizza crust recipe. It’s pretty much impossible for me to form pizza dough into perfect circles so I just cut any extra dough hanging off the pan with a clean scissors. I like to get the dough really thin by holding it up with 2 hands and rotating it vertically in the air.

  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour and a little extra for rolling
  • 1/8 oz. dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup warm water (120-130 degrees)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. In a medium bowl, stir together half of the flour, the yeast and the salt until well blended.
  2. Add the water and oil. Mix by hand until almost smooth. Gradually stir in remaining flour to make a firm dough.
  3. Cover and let set for at least 15 minutes. Prick the dough with a fork. Preheat oven to 400.
  4. Grease a baking sheet, and roll out the dough. Prebake for 10 to 12 minutes or just until edges of crust begin to turn a light golden brown.
