Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

I have been thinking about finding a good dough that I can make up and throw in the freezer and be able to take out and use for homemade pizza. I have a dough that I like already but I haven't ever tried to freeze it so I am not sure how it would turn out. This dough that I found has enough for 3 times AND it came with a few recipes that sounded good to me! So, I tried it out and it was pretty good! I used one and froze the other two... this means that the recipe that I first tried was really good and now I need to go back and try using the dough out of the freezer! Time to make some homemade pizza!!

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
(Recipe found in Taste of Home - Healthy Cooking)

3 packages (1/4 ounces each) quick rise yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 1/4 cups whole whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups water
3 tablespoons olive oil
3-3 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour

In a large bowl, combine the yeast, sugar, salt and whole wheat flour; set aside. In a small saucepan, heat water and oil to 120-130 degrees; stir into dry ingredients. Stir in enough white whole wheat flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky). Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 10 minutes. Punch down dough; divide into three portions. Use immediately, refrigerate overnight or freeze for up to 1 month.
