Homemade Pizza Crust

Last week I had my wisdom teeth removed, so in deciding one of my "last meals" I wanted to make my favorite, PIZZA!

I had been eyeing Ashlee's whole-wheat pizza crust, she has tried multiple variations and I think its about time I try it myself. It was pretty easy, except umm I forgot the Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) and it still turned out awesome!

Ashlee's Whole Wheat Crust

1 packet of fast acting yeast
1 tbsp. of honey
3/4 cup warm water
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour (I used bleached)
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a stand mixer using the mixing paddle mix honey, water, and yeast packet. Let sit for 10 minutes. Using dough hook add flours, salt, and Extra Virigin Olive Oil and knead for 10 minutes. Then place dough in warm location, covered with a damp towel and let rise for 1 hour or until double in size. Next, roll out dough onto pizza pan and top with sauce/cheese/toppings. Bake for ~20 minutes or until slightly brown and cheese is melted. 

I added some store-bought sauce, gulp, turkey sausage that I had crisped in the oven, fresh thinly-sliced mozzarella, and some freshly shredded cheddar. You might be curious about the different cheeses, but the husband loves fresh mozzarella and I love a really good cheddar! YUMMM!

What are your favorite pizza toppings?
