To improve the nutritional profile of pizza, include whole-wheat flour in the crust. Using half whole-wheat and half all-purpose yields a light crust with a distinctive nutty taste.

Golden Wholesome Pizza Crust

I just finished making my second homemade pizza using this crust recipe and I can't get enough! I love that it can be made a day in advance (as directed, store dough in plastic bag in the fridge) and also as a fun weeknight dinner. Using a food processor makes kneading super simple and I love the nutty flavor that the whole wheat flour provides. Thank you! I have tagged this as a keeper!

Quick, Nutritious
LOVE IT!!!!!!!

Just made it. Soooo EASY and simple

My go-to recipe and I use a bread machine

I make this in my bread machine all the time on the dough setting - it's my go-to recipe. I do make one slight change - I use 1 T honey instead of the sugar. Love it! We never order pizza out because I can make it almost as fast!


This crust is amazing!! I'm thirteen, and made this once already and have another one resting as I type! It is delightfully crisp on the outside, and oh so soft on the inside! I put a little less flour, since it would be a bit thick with all the flour (or you could add a little water). Totally a keeper!!! Thank you!


I LOVE that I used my food processor to make bread! I followed the recipe for a pound but had to use way more water than stated. That being said, I do live in CO and there is thin, dry air up here! Anyway, made 2 thin crust pizzas and thought it turned out great!

Easy, Quick, Cheap to make!
