Homemade pizza

My family loves pizza, I dont know many kids that dont. Instead of spending all that money on delivery pizza and wasting my time waiting on it, we make this. I usually have the boys put on the tomato sauce and spices and toppings. We have had some occasions where there are blobs of seasonings that kinda make your eyes water, but we make great memories when we make this pizza. It tastes awesome, and again the recipe is off the back of a package. I always check the back for recipes now. This is off Hodgson mill whole wheat flour. I make this two times in seperate bowls because we love pizza. It makes a cookie sheet sized pizza each time. You can also divide it up to make smaller pizzas.

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
1 pkg dry active yeast
1 cup warm water
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

Dissolve yeast in water and let sit for about 5 min. Mix all other ingredients in a large bowl, then stir in yeast water mix. Stir well, it gets a little dry and you have to knead in the last bit of flour. Let the dough rest for 15 min in a greased bowl be sure and flip it so its coated. Spray your pan and press dough in it. If you get tears in it its easy to fix them just press the dough back together.
Now I finish the dough by poking lots of little holes in it with a fork so it doesnt get bubbles and push your toppings out of the pan while its cooking. Then I spoon on and spread around tomato sauce. Then we sprinkle on garlic powder, onion powder, and italian seasoning. (which is just herbs) Then we sprinkle on cheese, however much you want, and add assorted toppings. You cook this at about 400 to 425 until the edges of the crust is just browning and it starts to seperate from the pan.
