Servings 16 Slices



  • 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 cups Bread Flour
  • cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 teaspoon Instant Yeast
  • 12 ounces Beer Room Temperature
  • 2 teaspoon Salt


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, add the flour and salt to the bowl and mix.
  • Add the beer, yeast, olive oil, and salt to the bowl. Mix together for 5 minutes until the dough forms a dough ball and all the ingredients are mixed together. There should be no leftover flour left in the bowl.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rise for 2-3 hours in a warm, draft free place.
  • After 3 hours, or when the dough has doubled in size, divide the dough into two dough balls and place them on a floured surface.
  • Preheat the oven to 500 degrees.
  • Roll out the pizza dough and place it on a greased pizza pan or a preheated pizza stone. Bake for 5-8 minutes to precook the dough. Carefully take out the pizza dough and top with your favorite toppings.


  • The salt should not be added directly to the yeast.  Mix the flour and salt together first, and then add the yeast.  The salt will kill the yeast and not allow the dough to rise.
  • This makes two 14 inch pizzas.  To make these individual pizzas, cut the dough into 8 dough balls and roll out as you would.
  • Place the dough in an OFF oven and allow it to rise.  Make sure to note that the dough is in the oven so you don't preheat the oven while the dough is in there.
  • The beer should be at room temperature. Take the beer out of the refrigerator and pour it into a liquid measuring cup. Leave it on the counter for about an hour and allow it to completely come to room temperature. If you use cold beer, it will take hours before the dough rises properly.
