Easy Whole-Wheat Pizza Dough

July/August 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (96 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.

easy, fast, and makes a very crispy crust

It was thin enough (I used this to make 4 personal pizzas) that you couldn't really taste the crust much with the toppings but I like my crust to have a nice taste on its own.

Easy, Healthy Homemade Pizza Dough

This recipe really is as easy as it sounds. I prepared my toppings while the dough was rising. The only bit of work is the 10 minutes of kneading, but I found that to be quite therapeutic actually. Next time, I might try the food processor variation, just to see how it comes out. I also might try white whole-wheat flour instead of regular whole-wheat flour for...

one pound of pizza dough?

This will be my first homemade pizza crust other than the jiffy box. I am not following a recipe so i am not sure if this will be enough dough. I am not sure how you find out how many pounds of dough you will need to use for the size of your pans- any help is greatly appreciated!
