Thin Crust Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

This is a super easy recipe with delicious results. This recipe is also great for the BBQ, just lay dough right on the grill, cooking 3 or so minutes each side and then topping with minimal, precooked toppings.

In a medium bowl, mix yeast flour and salt.

Add oil and applesauce. Mix.

Form a well and add warm water. Mix until dough starts to form.

Lay dough and floured surface and knead for about 3 minutes. 

Place dough back in bowl, cover with a towel and let rise for 1 hour (it won't rise a huge amount)

On a pizza stone, baking sheet or other surface, form dough into a sausage shape and begin gently stretching dough from all ends trying not to tear it.

Stretch until unable to stretch anymore. This will not be a perfect pizza shape as you can see.
 Bake at 375F for 5 -8 minutes then switch oven to broil setting (maintaining same temperature) and broil for 2-3 minutes or until golden.

Top with favorite toppings and precooked meat. Bake at 375F for about 12 minutes or until cheese is completely melted. Enjoy!
