Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

I got this recipe from Andrea Baker. It is a yummy, healthy pizza crust. I used tonight for my pizza and the kid didn't even notice that it was whole wheat.

1 cup warm water

1 Tablespoon yeast

1 Tablespoon sugar

2-2 ½ cups whole wheat flour (or white flour)

1 Tablespoon salt

Combine warm water, yeast, and sugar, let sit a while until foamy (5 min?) Put a container of water in the microwave and boil it to create a warm, steamy environment (Don’t open the door and let the steam escape!) Process 2 cups of flour and salt. Add foamy yeast mixture in a stream into running processor. Process until mixture makes a ball and is kneaded (10-15 seconds?). Add more flour if it is too sticky and process again. Quickly stick food processor bowl in microwave and shut the door. The warm steamy microwave will help the dough rise quickly. It should be ready to roll out for pizza in about 15 minutes. I use a pizza stone, spray it with non-stick spray and roll out the dough and put on my toppings. Bake at 475 degrees for 13-17 min, but check on it at 10 minutes as ovens vary.
