This pizza dough is so easy to make, you'll wonder why you ever bought frozen or take-out. You can prepare your toppings while the dough rises, and pop it into the oven as soon as you're done.
Servings: 1 12-14 inch/ 30-35 cm pizza
Author: Mary Gillespie
  • 1-1/2 cups / 375 ml all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups / 375 ml whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup / 60 ml ground flax
  • 1 tablespoon / 15 ml sugar
  • 1 teaspoon / 5 ml salt
  • 1 tablespoon / 15 ml rapid-rise yeast or 1 envelope
  • 1 cup / 250 ml hot water
  • 2 tablespoons / 30 ml olive oil
  • Cornmeal or extra flour for kneading
  • Toppings of choice
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Sprinkle a 12 or 14-inch pizza pan with cornmeal.
  3. Place all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, flax, sugar, salt and yeast in mixing bowl. Stir to blend.
  4. Add oil to hot water and add to flour. Stir until dough starts to form a ball.
  5. Sprinkle a clean, flat surface with cornmeal or flour, and dump dough onto the surface. Knead until dough forms a smooth ball (about 5 minutes).
  6. (You can also use the dough hook on a stand mixer. Mix until the dough forms a smooth ball. This will only take a few minutes.)
  7. Flatten dough and roll or stretch it to fit the prepared pan.
  8. Let dough rise for 10 minutes, or while you prepare toppings.
  9. Top your pizza and place it in preheated oven.
  10. Bake for 20-25 iminutes, or until cheese is lightly browned and crust is puffy and browned.
  11. Slide pizza from pan and let cool 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
Recipe Notes

If needed because the dough seems dry and is not forming a ball, add an extra tablespoon or two of water.
