A fairly simple recipe that our family uses quite often for a nice tasting 14 inch pizza pie.  The ingredients can easily be doubled to get two pizzas for those larger gatherings or to parbake and freeze the second.

The time needed to complete making this dough is roughly 1 1/2 hours, with about 10-15 minutes of actual work if you have a electric mixer, which breaks down like this. 

measuring first ingredients <5 minutes
activate yeast ~5 minutes
mixing dough 5-10 minutes
letting it rise 45-60 minutes
flattening out the dough 5-10 minutes

now onto the recipe...

In your mixer bowl, combine the yeast, sugar and warm water.  Give this a stir for about a minute then let it sit and activate for about 5 minutes

Step 3: Mix ingredients

Add the oil, 1 cup of bread flour and salt into the mixer bowl.  Turn on the mixer and let it stir until all the flour becomes moistened.  Start to add the whole wheat flour, about 1/4 of a cup at a time, until the dough completely pulls away from the bottom of the mixer bowl - but it should still be a little sticky.

Step 4: Let the dough rise

Coat the dough ball with some additional oil.  What I did this time was tilt the electric mixer up, pour about a tablespoon of oil into the bowl and the squeeze the dough off the hook, and then roll the dough ball around in the oil.

Remove the dough hook, and the mixer bowl from the base.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and place someplace warm.  I use the inside of my oven with the light on for a little extra warmth.

In 45 - 60 minutes, the dough ball should have just about doubled in size.

Oh, and we just tried the recipe. Tasted great!

I can see you are working with Kitchen Aid, this is a great tool I've heard. Are you happy with it ?

Sorry, sounded like a comment with a sales pitch attached, not about the instructable.
But yes, I do like my kitchen aid, I upgraded to a pro to be able to do more with it at a time ( up to 12 cups of flour in the pro )
We had this last night and it was awesome. For toppings we used tomatoes, feta, black olives and orange bell peppers. We used a mix of mozza and fresh parm for the cheese. Incredible!
Just had homemade pizza last nite using this dough recipe, DELICIOUS!!! 5/5
