Country Pizza/Bread Dough
4 cups unbleached flour
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast (2 teaspoons active dry yeast)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons room temperature water (110-120F)
- Either by hand or with a electric mixer, combine all the ingredients and mix them for one minute until it forms a coarse, sticky dough ball.
- Let the dough rest for five minutes, then mix again to make a smooth dough.
- Let it rise again.
- At this point you can either make it into a pizza or a loaf of bread. You could also deflate it and freeze it at this point. (Makes five 8-ounce pizzas)
