This healthy recipe comes from the North Dakota Wheat Commission.


¾ c. whole-wheat flour
¾ c. all-purpose flour
1 package quick-rising yeast (2¼ tsp.)
¾ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. sugar
½ c. warm water (120 to 130 F) *
2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oils



Combine whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, yeast, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl. Stir to mix dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine hot water and oil (water should be 120 to 130 F); gradually combine water mixture with dry ingredients until a sticky ball forms. *If dough is too dry, add 1 to 2 Tbsp. warm water; if dough is too sticky, add 1 to 2 Tbsp. flour. Using a stand mixer, process dough for one minute to knead. Spray a sheet of plastic wrap with cooking spray and cover bowl, allowing dough to rest for 10 to 20 minutes before rolling. Preheat oven to 500 F and roll out dough (13-inch circle). Brush crust with olive oil and poke with fork.
