Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

This post is all about the pizza dough, hence the name Whole Wheat Pizza Dough. I did try a barbecue blt pizza topping, but it was not that good and the whole family agreed I should never make it again. But that dealt with just the toppings, we all loved the crust.

I really wish I had taken a picture of just the dough, but I am so used to taking pictures of the finished product, it never occurred to me to take a picture of just the dough. That is until now, which of course is too late. Oh well, lesson learned for next time.

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough


  • 1 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon oil olive
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the dough hook, add the honey, warm water and stir to dissolve. Sprinkle the yeast over top and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Add in the olive oil and turn the mixer on low.
  3. Gradually add in both flours, increase the speed as you go.
  4. Add in the salt and continue to mix until the dough forms a ball. Remove the dough and form a smooth ball.
  5. Place the dough ball in a well oiled bowl and turn once to coat both sides in oil.
  6. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and allow to rise for 1 hour.
  7. Preheat oven to 450ยบ F.
  8. Uncover the bowl and punch down the dough.
  9. This dough will make either 1 large regular crust or two medium thin crusts.
  10. Roll out the pizza dough and top with your favorite toppings.
  11. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
