2. In an electric mixing bowl, add and combine the yeast with warm water and sugar. Let this sit for 5 minutes.
3. Stir in the whole wheat flour, white flour, olive oil and salt. knead this well on medium speed for 10 minutes. Once done, cover the bowl with a damp cloth and set it aside to rise for 45 minutes.
4. After 45 minutes, shape the dough into 10 golf sized balls and place them on a baking sheet. Cover the baking sheet with a damp cloth and let this rise for another 10 minutes before baking.
