Preheat oven to 450°F. Note: If you have a pizza stone, use it! If you don’t have a pizza stone, you can mimic one by placing an upside down sheet pan into the oven while it is preheating.
Using an electric mixer fitted with dough hook attachment, add both flours, water and salt; stir on low speed until well combined. Increase speed to medium and let mix for 6-7 minutes, or until dough is very smooth.
Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and then cover with plastic wrap. Let dough rest at room temperature for 15 minutes.
Working on a large cutting board, spray board with non-stick baking spray. Roll one ball into an 8” or 9” circle.
Brush top of dough lightly with olive oil and then sprinkle top with kosher salt and/or Italian seasonings. Flip dough over and repeat process.
Working with 1-2 pieces of dough at a time, place dough on the pizza stone (or overturned sheet pan) and bake for 3-4 minutes. Using a pair of kitchen or grill tongs, flip dough over and continue baking for 3-4 more minutes. Repeat process with remaining pieces of dough.
Let cool and then break each piece apart into bite-sized pieces. Serve with additional olive oil for dipping.
