Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

In our small town, we really don't have any good pizza places.  They're all chains and, well, nothing too special.  So, what's a family that loves pizza to do?  Homemade pizza of course!  This dough makes a delicious pizza and is so easy to make (thanks to my bread maker :)  The best part?  We each get our own pizza to top how we want!

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
Makes 8 servings

1 1/3 cups warm water
1/4 cup olive oil
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp yeast

1. Place all ingredients in the pan according to your bread maker's instructions.  Choose the 'dough' program and push start.

2.  Once the dough is finished, place it on a well floured surface and divide the dough into desired number of portions.  Roll each portion into a ball and cover with a damp cloth.  Allow to rest and rise for 30 minutes.  While dough is rising, turn the oven to 450 and place a pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven to preheat.

3.  Once dough has risen, shape dough either with a rolling pin or your hands.  Carefully place on hot pizza stone and top as desired.  Bake for 10-20 minutes (depending on the size of your pizza), remove from oven, slice and enjoy!

P.S.  For a fun alternative, make calzones!
