2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons rapid-rise yeast
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup olive oil

Pour about 1 cup very warm water (about 110 degrees) into bowl. Add honey and salt. Stir until dissolved. Stir in yeast and allow to proof (bubble up) for 5 minutes. Add 1 cup of all-purpose flour and oil and mix until smooth and lump free. Add remainder of flour and mix until you can form ball with dough. If too dry, add water, 1 tablespoon at a time until achieving right consistency. If too wet, add 1 tablespoon flour at a time. Place dough ball on floured board and knead for about a minute. Put dough in sealed plastic bag or covered bowl and allow to rise in warm spot until doubled, about 45 minutes. Punch down dough, then let rise until doubled again.

On well-floured board, form dough into flat ball (divide in two for smaller “personal”-size pies). Pressing from center of dough outward, form dough into flat disc, turning it as you go. When dough has been flattened to about half an inch in thickness, use a rolling pin to flatten it further. Puncture dough several times with fork and put it on baking stone or lightly greased pizza pan. Form a rim of dough around the edge. Cover with sauce and toppings of your choice. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
