Description

Can you believe that this dough is 100% whole wheat? Yet it handles so well – better than any pizza dough recipe I’ve ever tried.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Warm Water (about 110° F)
  • 2-¼ teaspoons Instant Yeast
  • 1-¼ cup Water At Room Temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra-virgin Olive Oil Plus Extra For Greasing The Bowl
  • 4 cups White Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1-½ teaspoon Sea Salt

Preparation

1) Place the 1/2 cup warm water in a small bowl. Add the yeast and stir. Let sit for about 5 minutes, or until the yeast begins to swell. Add to the room temperature water and oil and stir.

2) Place the flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix briefly until combined. With mixer on low speed, slowly add the liquid ingredients. Mix just until a cohesive dough forms. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes.

3) Change to the dough hook attachment. Knead the dough until it becomes smooth and elastic, about 5 more minutes.

4) Oil or butter a medium-sized bowl. Transfer the dough to the prepared bowl. Cover with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap and place in a warm spot. Allow to rise for 1 ½-2 hours, or until it doubles in volume. The dough is now ready to be used in your recipe.

Makes enough dough for approximately 3 thin-crust, large-sized pizzas.

I used this recipe last night for a grilled pizza! It was delicious…or at least the second one was. The first one burst into flames!!!! Not exactly sure why, but it was interesting to say the least!

I made this dough tonight, but used unbleached white flour instead of whole wheat. It made enough dough to cover an entire cookie sheet (yay), so we made a really big pizza! It was delicious – we all loved the crust!

How do you freeze the dough, after it rises or before? I’m guessing after it rises, and how did you wrap it with a ziploc bag? Thanks for your help!

We made this dough last week and it was very good. We doubled the recipe and used 6 cups bread flour and 2 cups of whole wheat flour. (I love whole wheat but the kids not so much.)
I dusted with cornmeal, garlic powder and herbs de province as I was rolling the dough out.
It was very easy to work with!
Also, we cooked our pizzas at 425 until golden brown :-)
Thanks for the recipe!

I made this pizza crust last night and my family loved it. I brushed the crust with olive oil and crushed garlic and baked for a few minutes at 425 and then put the toppings on and baked at 425 again. It was amazing. I grind my own flour and use the hard white wheat for everything. It was perfect in this recipe. Thanks!

I’ve been looking for a whole wheat pizza dough recipe for a while now and this is the best one I’ve had by far. I divided it into three and put the other two pieces of dough into the freezer. Can’t wait to make it again!

The dough was really easy to make and doubled in size in less than an 1.5 hours! Tasted great too! Best pizza crust I’ve ever made!

This dough came out perfectly! It was fluffy inside yet crispy on the outside. Love that it’s all whole wheat too. Who needs to buy pizza dough, when it’s this easy to make. Thanks for sharing.
