Pizza Dough

(I found this recipe in a "Taste of Home" magazine)
Perfect Pizza Crust

1 Tbsp. active dry yeast
1 ½ C. warm water (110-115 degrees)
2 Tbsp. sugar
½ tsp. salt
2 C. bread flour
1 ½ C. whole wheat flour
Pizza toppings of your choice

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, salt, 1 cup bread flour and the whole wheat flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining bread flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down; roll into a 15 inch circle. Grease a 14 inch pizza pan and sprinkle with cornmeal. Transfer dough to prepared pan; build up edges slightly.
Add toppings of your choice. Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until crust is golden brown and toppings are lightly browned and heated through.

This is our favorite pizza dough but we do like thinner crust so I cut the recipe in half for one pizza!!
