Prep Time 2 hours 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 30 minutes
Servings 2 pizzas (8 slices each)

Ingredients

  • CRUST:
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1-1/3 cups warm water 110F
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • Cornmeal for sprinkling
  • TOPPINGS:
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 cup sliced black olives optional
  • 1 lb ground beef browned (optional)
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups montery jack cheese
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese

Instructions

  • Prepare the crust: In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand 5 minutes until foamy. Whisk in sugar, oil, and salt until smooth. Stir in flour until a ball of dough forms. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Let rise at room temperature 1-1/2 to 2 hours, or until doubled in size.
  • Sprinkle two sheets of parchment paper with cornmeal. Punch dough down and divide into two portions. Place each portion on parchment paper and roll into a 12-in circle.
  • Spread each crust circle with pizza sauce. Sprinkle with optional toppings and cheeses.
  • Bake pizzas at 425F 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is lightly browned and crust is golden. Cool pizza 5 minutes before serving.

Notes

Store pizza in refrigerator up to 2 days. Pizza may also be frozen up to 2 weeks.
