Rye Pizza Dough

A great base for a Reuben pizza. Add your favorite toppings.


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rye flour
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 2/3 cup water at 120 degrees
  • 1 tablespoon corn or other neutral flavor oil


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup of the all-purpose flour and the rest of the dry ingredients.
  3. Add the water and oil, and mix well. Gradually add the rest of the all-purpose flour until you have a soft, slightly sticky ball.
  4. Lightly flour your work surface. Knead the dough until smooth and elastic, about 5-8 minutes.
  5. Cover and let rest for at least 20 minutes.
  6. Form the crust and parbake for 7 minutes (optional).


Slightly cracking the caraway seeds helps release their flavor. So does toasting them.
