Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Yesterday we had a beautiful day. Friends came over to can some green beans. We had an excellent time. We all came together with shared food and enjoyed a beautiful feast of fresh watermelon, peach cobbler, egg salad, sun-gold tomatoes, cucumbers, kale, lacto-fermented carrots, and all sorts of pickled goodness! Pickled beets, cucumbers, garlic, okra, green tomatoes. YUM! It was a wonderful spread. 
I decided that morning I would make a pizza. Not even realizing what all we had to share. So great to have likeminded friends. It is a treat.

So I whipped up our favorite homemade pizza.
Here's how to make the crust:

2 1/2 cup flour (I used 1 1/2 cup wheat & 1 cup white)
1 cup warm water
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 Tablespoon coconut oil or lard
1 Tablespoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Add water and oil.  Mix well.
Knead 5 minutes 
Roll out into pizza crust, making it as thin or thick as you wish.
Bake at 400* for 10 minutes
(Makes 1 large crust)
