Whole Wheat Pizza Crust recipe

I am making whole wheat pizza for dinner. I had a leftover bolognese sauce to get rid of. Even though I purchased the pizza dough this time (I actually found whole wheat at whole foods), I do have a recipe that I love. Here it is:

1 package instant dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1.5 c. all purpose flour
1.5- 2 C. whole wheat flour
pinch salt
1 tablespoon olive oil

Dissolve yeast in water. Add oil and salt. With a whisk, slowly beat in the all purpose flour. Knead in the whole wheat flour until proper bread consistency is reached (not too sticky, has a good snap to it when pinched). Form into a ball and cover with a damp cloth. Let stand in a warm place until double. Punch down after it rose. Divide dough into two halves. Dough recipe makes 2 medium size pizzas.

This recipe sounds great. When I make pizza dough I usually optimize my efforts by making a double batch and freezing half of it. Then, a week or so later, I can thaw the odugh in the fridge and then bring it out to room temperature for a mini-rise before baking. That way -- I don't have to clean all that stray flour off of my cutting board and floor as often!
