  • 2 ¾ cups white whole wheat flour or regular whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

ingredients icon Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit with a rack in the upper third of the oven

Step 2

Whisk water, sugar, oil and yeast in a liquid measuring cup or small bowl. Allow yeast to proof for 5 minutes. It should puff up some by then

Step 3

Pulse flour, Parmesan, and salt in food processor until combined. While running the food processor, slowly pour in the water mixture and process until a shaggy ball forms, about 1 minute

Step 4

Dump the dough onto a floured work surface and quickly knead dough a few times until it comes together. Halve the dough

Step 5

On a floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll dough into two rounds about 11 inches in diameter. For best results, roll the dough out about as thin as reasonably possible. Aim for even thickness rather than a perfectly round shape

Step 6

Transfer dough to a baking pan (my baking pan is non-stick, but if yours isn’t, you might want to lightly grease it with cooking spray)

Step 7

Brush the outer 1-inch of the dough with a light coating of olive oil

Step 8

Add drained, crushed tomatoes (crush the tomatoes over the sink to get out as much liquid as possible) or pizza sauce of your choice. Sprinkle with cheese and vegetables

Step 9

Bake on the top rack until the crust and cheese are lightly golden, rotating halfway, about 10 minutes for cheese pizza and 12 minutes for pizza with additional toppings

Done
