Our favorite pizza dough

Our pizza dough recipe is a little faster to make than Ree's and in our opinion better (sorry Ree).  Taste is subjective, so try them both and decide for yourself.

1 cup warm water
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
1 tsp sugar
 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour*
1 tsp salt

1.Combine the water, yeast and sugar. 
2. Stir in the flour, salt and oil. 
3. Beat until smooth (will be very sticky).  
4.  Let rest for 5 minutes.
5.  Roll out dough and add toppings.
6.  Bake at 450 for 12-15 minutes.

Yields:  1 thick crust 16" pizza or 1 thin 16" and a thin 12".
Make extra crusts, bake 5 minutes, cool then freeze in plastic bags until ready to use.

*We use freshly ground Spelt flour.
