Directions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together flours, wheat germ and flaxseed; set aside.
  2. In a 2-cup measuring cup, combine water and sugar. Sprinkle yeast over water. Let stand for 5 minutes or until bubbles begin to appear. Stir oil and salt into yeast mixture.
  3. Using a wooden spoon, stir yeast mixture into flour mixture. Continue stirring to combine ingredients until dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in any loose flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic, about 3 minutes. To knead dough, fold and push away with the heel of your hand. Turn dough and repeat until smooth.
  5. Shape dough into a ball. Place in a lightly greased bowl, turning once. Cover; let rise in a warm place until double in size, 45 to 60 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Punch dough down. Divide dough into six portions. Roll each portion into a 6- to 8-inch circle. Spread desired sauce over dough. Top with desired veggies and cheeses.
  7. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until bubbly.
  8. *Note: To freeze pizza dough, wrap individual portions in plastic wrap and freeze in a resealable plastic bag for up to 1 week. Thaw dough portions in the refrigerator for 8 to 10 hours, or at room temperature for about 3 hours, before using.
