Honey Wheat Pizza Dough (rotation recipe)

This is one more way I'm able to rotate my food storage wheat.  I love this pizza dough--it's easy enough for a beginner and always turns out great!  You can use whatever oil and salt you have on hand, but I prefer the taste of olive oil and sea salt.  I like to let my yeast sit for about 3 minutes and make sure it's active.  (Keeping an opened jar of yeast safely in the fridge will keep it fresh).  It's so good, I barely got a shot of the pizza :0)

Honey Wheat Pizza Dough
1-1/2 teaspoons yeast
3/4 cup warm tap water (not scalding)
1-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons honey
1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1-1/4 teaspoons sea salt
Dissolve yeast in warm water.  Add all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, honey, olive oil, and salt; mix well. Knead for several minutes until dough is smooth and elastic.  Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to coat.  Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free space for one to two hours or until double in bulk.  Punch dough down and roll to shape.  Yield:  dough for one 15-inch pizza.

Here's a good tip on Storing Wheat, from an old Ensign magazine:
We purchased four shelf boards, and by stacking the three-pound cans we made a wall bookshelf.  These we painted the same color as the wall.  The total cost was seven dollars.  We have a lot of fun when friends compliment us on our new bookshelf.  We tell them there is more there than meets the eye--food for the body as well as food for the spirit.  They are amazed when we tell them about the 420 pounds of wheat stored there.  ~Bernice Ketner  Below is a picture found on Pinterest (originally which gives a similar idea:

Back of the loaf is the snowy flour, 
And back of the flour, the mill, 
And back of the mill is the wheat and the shower,
The sun and the Father's will.  ~Anonymous

My teenage son sticks his nose up at homemade pizza even though I think I do a pretty good job.  However, I'm looking for really great pizza recipes and have been collecting some on Pinterest.  Do you have a killer pizza recipe that you think my son would like?  Send me the recipe today!
