¾ cup warm water
1 pkg. (2 ¼ tsp) active dry yeast
½ tsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup quick or old fashioned oats
1 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese
½ tsp. salt
In a mixing bowl, combine water, yeast, and sugar. Let stand until foamy. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and mix for 1 minute (a mixer with a dough hook works well). Cover and let rest for 15-20 minutes. With floured hands, shape dough into ball and press into pan. (You want to make it pretty thin, because it will rise a little more.) Cover and let rest 15 minutes. Bake at 450 for about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and top with your choice of pizza toppings. Bake for 10 more minutes until cheese is melted. Makes one pizza.
Note: To make ahead and freeze, just bake crust for 8 minutes, then cool and freeze. Frozen crusts may be topped with sauce/toppings and baked for 10-15 minutes.
