Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) yeast, quick-rise
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup California walnuts
  • 3/4 cup water, warm

Preparation

  1. Combine flours, yeast, sugar, salt and walnuts in food processor. Whirl until walnuts are finely chopped. With motor running, gradually add 3/4 cup warm tap water. Process until dough forms a ball and comes away from sides of processor. Dough should be soft and moist. Let rest 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat gas or charcoal grill to medium-high heat. Divide dough in half. With lightly oiled hands, pat and stretch dough into two 9 to 10-inch circles. Coat one side of dough generously with oil; place oiled side down onto grill. Close grill lid and grill 3-4 minutes until top is puffed and bottom is well-browned. Remove and place grilled side up on a baking sheet.
  3. Top with desired toppings, return to grill, cover and cook 5-6 minutes until bottom side is well-browned and cheeses are melted.
