My go-to homemade dough is simple and perfect for baking from scratch. I use this recipe for making pizza, manaqeesh, and other savory/sweet treats. Making dough does not have to be complex, use this easy, 5 ingredient recpie for your baking!
1 cup warm water
2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast
3 1/4 cups whole wheat white flour (or all purpose flour)
1/4 cup ground flaxseed (optional)
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup olive oil
Makes one 16-inch or two 12-inch round dough Prep time: 15 min. Rise time: 45 min.
Pour the water into a bowl and dust the yeast over it. Stir until dissolved and put aside.
In a food processor, combine 3 cups of flour with salt and flaxseed, add the yeast mixture and the oil, and process until a dough forms a ball.
Pinch the dough, if sticky add a little more flour. If it is crumbly add a little more water.
Divide the dough ball into two equal-sized balls.
Put the balls in two separate bowls, cover lightly, keep them in a warm place, and let them rise for 45 minutes.
Spread 1/4 cup of flour on a clean surface, place one ball of dough at a time, and roll into a circle shape. Repeat for the second ball.
