Pizza Dough

 ¾ C water warmed to 100 -110 degrees
1 package dry yeast (this equals 2 ¼ t)
1 t sugar
1 T olive oil
Whisk the above ingredients together and allow to sit for a few minutes.
1 ¼ C all-purpose flour
½ wheat flour
1 t salt

Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon. The mixture will remain wet and sticky. Pour out onto a floured board and knead for a few minutes until smooth and not ‘craggy.’
Place dough in an oiled bowl, turn dough over in the bowl until all sides of the dough ball are covered in oil.
Cover and allow to rest in a warm place for two hours or until doubled in size. I placed mine in the warming drawer of my oven.
When dough is doubled in size, turn out on a floured board and roll out to desired size. Top with your favorite pizza toppings and bake in a hot oven (400 degrees) for about 15 minutes or until golden on the bottom.
