Ingredients

  • 3-1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 5 teaspoons quick-rise yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1-1/2 to 1-2/3 cups warm water (120° to 130°)

Directions

  1. Place flours, yeast and salt in a food processor; pulse until blended. Add honey. While processing, gradually add water until a ball forms. Continue processing 60 seconds to knead dough.
  2. Turn dough onto floured surface; shape into a ball. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. Divide dough into quarters. Use immediately or securely wrap and freeze for later use.
    Freeze option:Wrap each portion of dough in plastic wrap and place in resealable freezer bags; freeze up to 1 month. To use, thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Proceed as directed.
To make pizza: Preheat oven to 450°. Grease a 12-in. pizza pan; sprinkle with cornmeal. On a lightly floured surface, stretch and shape one portion of dough to form a 12-in. crust; transfer to prepared pan. Top as desired. Bake 15-20 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. If using frozen dough, thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Proceed as directed.
