RECIPE: Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

I never thought I would like whole wheat pizza crust, but in 2010, I gave up white flour for 40 days, and I was forced to try new things. This pizza crust is amazing! As a fan of white flour, I never thought I'd like this, but I still use this recipe when I make pizza.

Whole Wheat Pizza Crust


1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup hot water
1 Tbsp. olive oil
3/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. yeast (one packet)


Combine in a bowl until a ball forms and cover with plastic wrap. (Or you could use a bread machine, which is what I usually do). Let the dough rise for 15-20 minutes.

Spread out dough on a pizza pan (you may need to add a little more flour to keep it from being too sticky) and bake at 475 F for about 5-8 minutes.

Then add your toppings, and bake again until cheese is bubbly and starting to brown. Makes 4 servings.

Notes: I like to divide the dough into four small balls, and then we each get to make our own mini pizzas with the toppings we like. My favorite is green pepper and feta cheese! Below is a margherita pizza with fresh mozzarella and basil.
