  1. Wash hands with warm, soapy water.
  2. Combine whole-wheat flour, yeast, sugar, dry milk powder, and salt in a 1 gallon heavy-duty freezer bag with a zipper lock. Squeeze upper part of bag to force out air.

  3. Add hot water and oil to the bag and reseal it. Mix by working bag with fingers. 
  4. Gradually add enough all-purpose flour to the bag to make a stiff dough that pulls away from the bag. 
  5. Place dough on a floured surface. Knead 2-4 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  6. Cover dough and let it rest for a full 10 minutes. [end here for pizza]
