Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
For many who enjoy the occasional pizza, whole wheat crust is a bit healthier alternative. While it is healthier than traditional white crust, whole wheat pizza crust can be tough and chewy. The good news is: you can make your own healthier crust at home quickly and with little effort. Even better, this crust won’t be tough or chewy. This recipe makes 1-12″ pizza.
In a mixer bowl measure: 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour 1 Tabl. Dry, Active Yeast 1/2 tsp. Salt 1 Tabl. Sugar
Add: 1 cup Warm Water (just room temp – NOT HOT!) 2 Tabl. Olive Oil
Using a dough hook, mix for 2 minutes. Place dough in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes. Press the dough out using a rolling pin or finger to desired thickness on a baking sheet or stone. Top with your favorite toppings. (For a thicker crust, allow to rise again before topping.) Bake in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes.
