Introduction

I worked for months and months to perfect a whole wheat pizza dough, and I think I've finally found it. We love it, love it, love it! This makes enough dough for two large pizzas. We normally use one, freeze the other. To use the frozen one, thaw on the counter and then place in off oven on a pizza pan. Pour a recently boiled kettle of water in a roasting pan under the dough and close the oven. The warm, moist air reproofs the frozen dough.

Ingredients

    1 c. warm water
    3 tbsp. olive oil
    1 tbsp. sugar
    1 tsp. salt
    2 c. whole wheat flour
    1 c. white flour
    1 tsp. minced garlic
    2 1/2 tsp. yeast (1 packet)
    1 tbsp. oregano
    1 tbsp. basil

Directions

In a mixer, fitted with a dough hook, combine all ingredients. Mix on low until well combined. Knead on medium-low for 5-10 minutes until dough is stretchy and smooth to the touch. Cover bowl with damp cloth and let rise in a warm place for 10 minutes. Split dough in half and form into disc (wrap one in plastic wrap and freeze now, if desired). Coat pizza pan with cooking spray, spread one dough disc. Top with sauce, toppings and cheese. Bake at 450° for 15-20 minutes, or until nicely browned. Slice pizza into eight slices.

Serving size is 1 slice using one crust.

    This was very good. I used straight whole wheat flour instead of the mix. I rolled the dough thin and substituted honey for the sugar. - 8/22/11

    Yes, it's just the crust, but these are two HUGE pieces with very thick dough (think XL pizza from a pizza place). Truthfully, if you like a thinner crust, you could probably get 16 slices (two large pizzas) and halve the calories.
