Deep Dish Vegetable Pizza

1 tsp. granulated sugar
8fl oz. warm water
1 pkt active dry yeast or 1 Tbs./15 ml
8 oz. plain, strong flour
8 oz. whole wheat floor
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. vegetable oil

In large mixing bowl, dissolve sugar in warm water. Sprinkle yeast
over water and let stand for 10 minutes or until foamy. Meanwhile,
combine flours and salt.

Stir oil into foamy yeast mixture. Stir in about half the flour
mixture. Add more flour, mixing until dough can be gathered into
a slightly sticky ball (you may need a little more or less than 1
lb/450 g of flour).

On lightly floured surface, knead dough for about 5 minutes or
until smooth and elastic, adding more flour as necessary to prevent
dough from sticking to work surface. Cut dough in half, cover with
greasproof paper and let rest for 10 minutes.

On lightly floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll each piece
of dough into a 12 inch/30 cm circle, about 1/4 inch/5 mm thick.
Transfer rounds to 2 lightly oiled pizza pans or baking sheets.
Carefully, using fingers, stretch dough into large circles.

Let dough rise for about 15 minutes before adding toppings. For a
thicker crust, let dough rise for 30 minutes. Add toppings (see
below recipe) just before baking. Makes 12 inch/30 cm pizza rounds.
