Homemade Pizza

  • 2 cups warm water
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 4 ½ – 5 cups whole wheat flour
In a large bowl, mix the water, olive oil, honey salt, yeast, and 3 cups flour. Knead in remaining flour. The dough should be fairly soft, I only used 4 ½ cups of flour, but you might need to use more. Knead for 2-3 minutes. Let rise one hour.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Divide the dough into four pieces. Roll each piece into a 16-17 inch diameter circle. Place on baking sheets and prick with a fork.

Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Top with sauce, cheese, and toppings of choice. Bake each pizza another 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is golden and bubbly.

Pizza Sauce:

  • 6-7 cups tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic

Mix all ingredients and use on pizza.
