Sprinkle 1 tablespoon active dry yeast on top of the warm water and let sit untouched for 10 minutes.
To the water mixture, add in salt and olive oil and mix. Stir in 3 ½ cups of whole wheat flour, mixing until the dough starts to come together.
Place the dough on a floured surface and knead the dough until all of the flour is absorbed. If the dough is to sticky, add in more flour 1 tablespoon at a time.
Add a bit of olive oil to a large bowl, ensuring the sides of the bowl are covered in oil. Add the pizza dough to the bowl.
Cover the pizza dough with a towel and place in a warm spot or over a bowl of warm water.
Allow the dough 2-hours to rise.
