  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat pastry flour, baking powder, and sea salt, and whisk together until thoroughly combined.

  2. In a separate bowl, combine water and olive oil in and stir to combine.

  3. Slowly add water mixture to the flour mixture, stirring to incorporate. Mix together until a dough forms. The dough should be soft, but not sticky. You can add a little more water if it's too dry, a tablespoon at a time. If it's too sticky, just add a little more flour.

  4. Once the dough has formed into a ball, knead the dough for 5 minutes. Then, roll the dough out into a large circle using a rolling pin or by stretching it with your hands.
