Honey Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Growing up I was never a fan of whole wheat anything. However as I have grown older I have realized whole wheat stuff made right can be good. This pizza crust is a great example of that. It has whole wheat in it but also some all purpose flour so it is not too heavy and dense. A perfect crust accented with a touch of sweet honey. Top with this dough with your desired topping for a delicious pizza.

Honey Whole Wheat Pizza Dough


  • 1 3/4 cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour


  1. In a glass measuring cup add warm water, honey and yeast. Let mixture sit for 5 minutes or until the mixture is puffy.
  2. Add in the oil and gently whisk to combine.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the dough attachment, combine the water and yeast mixture, salt and both flours. Turn mixer on low.
  4. Once the dough begins to form a ball, keep mixer on low and knead for 2-3 minutes or until the dough has formed a ball that is smooth and elastic.
  5. Remove dough and place in an oiled bowl. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and allow to rise for 2 hours.
  6. Preheat oven to 450ยบ F.
  7. Punch the dough down and divide into 2 pieces. Roll the dough out to your desired thickness on a lightly floured surface.
  8. Top pizza with your desired toppings and baked for 10-14 minutes.

Cooking time will vary depending on how thin or thick you roll out the dough. So watch the pizza carefully so the crust does not burn.
