Ingredients

DOUGH:
1 1/4 cups lukewarm water
1 packet active dry yeast (about 2 tsp)
1 TBSP honey
2 1/4 cups bread flour
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 TBSP plus 1 tsp olive oil
AIOLI SAUCE:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 garlic clove, minced
1 TBSP freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 TBSP olive oil
TOPPINGS & ASSEMBLY:
olive oil
6 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
2 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced
2 ounces fresh baby arugula


Directions

DOUGH:

1. In a large bowl mix together the water, yeast, and honey. Add the flours, salt, and 1 TBSP of the oil, mix until well combined and dough pulls away from sides of bowl. Lightly flour your hands and a work surface and knead the dough by hand for 10 minutes (dough will be a little sticky).

2. Form the dough into a ball and place in a large bowl with the remaining 1 tsp of olive oil. Flip the dough ball around to cover in the oil then loosely cover the dough and put in a warm place to rise for about 1 hour.

TOPPINGS & ASSEMBLY:

1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly oil a large pizza pan or rimmed baking sheet.

2. Mix together all the AIOLI SAUCE ingredients in a bowl, set aside.

3. Punch down dough and stretch to fit in your pan. Bake the dough in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.

4. Take the dough out of the oven and sprinkle the cheese evenly on top. Put back in the oven and bake until crust is golden brown, 4 to 6 more minutes.

5. Remove the pizza from the oven and transfer to a cutting board. Lay avocado slices and arugula on the pizza then drizzle the ailoi sauce over top. Cut into slices and serve.
