1 pk Active dry yeast
2 c Whole wheat or unbleached
-flour
1 ts Olive oil
1/2 ts Herbal salt substitute

In a large mixing bowl, combine honey, the warm water, and yeast, and stir
until yeast dissolves. Let mixture stand, uncovered, at room temperature
for 5 minutes.

Stir in 1 cup of the flour and mix well. Let batter rise for 20 minutes,
then stir down and add remaining flour, oil, and salt substitute.

Lightly flour a counter or breadboard and turn dough onto it. Knead dough
for 5 minutes, flouring lightly as needed to prevent stickiness. Dough
should be smooth and elastic.

Lightly oil a large bowl and place dough into it. Cover with a dish towel
and let rise for 30 minutes. Punch down, then divide into 4 balls and roll
into rounds. Dough is now ready to use for pizza.

Makes 4 small pizza crusts.
