Bento for Baby Recipe: Quick Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

This is a really quick and easy pizza dough adapted from Eating Well Magazine.  You can make this with either half whole wheat and half all purpose flour, or two cups of white whole wheat flour.  This recipe makes 1 pound of dough.


1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons dry active yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
3/4 cup hot water, (120-130°F)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil


Combine whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, yeast and sugar in a food processor; pulse to mix.

Combine water, oil and salt in a glass measuring cup. Heat mixture in microwave for one minute. With the motor running, gradually pour in enough of the hot liquid until the mixture forms a sticky ball. The dough should be quite soft. If it seems dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons warm water; if too sticky, add 1 to 2 tablespoons flour. Process until the dough forms a ball, then process for 1 minute to knead.

Coat a bowl with a tiny bit of olive oil and transfer the dough into it. Turn the dough over in the bowl to lightly coat it with oil. Place a plate over the top of the bowl. Let the dough rest for 10 to 20 minutes before rolling.
