TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + standing YIELD:12 servings


  • 3 packages (1/4 ounce each) quick-rise yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2-1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2-1/2 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the yeast, sugar, salt and whole wheat flour; set aside. In a small saucepan, heat water and oil to 120°-130°; stir into dry ingredients. Stir in enough white whole wheat flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 10 minutes. Punch down dough; divide into three portions. Use immediately, refrigerate overnight or freeze for up to 1 month. Yield: 3 pounds (enough for 3 pizzas).
