Easy Whole-Wheat Pizza Dough

July/August 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (104 votes)

This homemade, yeasted whole-wheat pizza dough requires only one rising, not two, so it's quicker to make than you might suspect. Although bread flour provides more gluten to help the dough maintain its elasticity when shaped and baked, we tested the recipe with all-purpose flour and had good results. This sturdy dough was developed for grilled pizzas, but it can be used in any pizza recipe calling for 1 pound of pizza dough.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I had never made pizza crust before, and this was very easy and fast. The crust ended up very crisp and flavorful - exactly what you want for homemade pizza! I'm so happy that I know how to make pizza crust now - no more purchasing...

Today I made whole wheat pizza dough and tried my first attempt at homemade pizza!

Made four different ones, all with differing toppings. My ingredients included:
grilled eggplant, roasted butternut squash, kramini mushrooms, red onions, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, extra lean ground beef, salami, homemade pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella and ricotta cheese.

The thin crust came out nice and crispy :)

This is the pizza crust I use now for all my homemade pizzas. I make it in my food processor. I love how easy it is and the taste is great. Sometimes I add a little garlic powder and dried herbs, oregano and basil, for extra flavor. I also use honey instead of sugar.

do you just use regular honey?

it was easy to make. Plenty of dough to use. Sometimes there is not enough dough to cover the pan. Agree with Jdaniel that it is a crunchy, thin crust. No one complained in my house either.

Usually making pizza dough is a disaster for me and this one was perfect!
