Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1 cup warm water (about 90 degrees)
1 teaspoon honey
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil

Cornstarch (optional)

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Mix together the first three ingredients and set aside.  Measure the next four ingredients and mix with a whisk.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet, add the oil and mix in a mixer for about 2 minutes.  Swap out the beater blade for the dough hook (or hand knead) the dough for about five minutes by machine or 8 minutes by hand.  It should be smooth and elastic.  Remove from the bowl and place on a floured counter. 

Spray a 15" pizza pan with oil and sprinkle with cornstarch,  Stretch dough to fill the pan and flute the edges.  Bake the dough for 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and add toppings.  Bake for 15 more minutes or until cheese (if using) melts.
