    If you've been looking for a good, full flavored whole wheat pizza crust this is the recipe for you. Give it a try, I'm sure you will like this one!


    * 1 teaspoon white sugar
    * 1 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
    * 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
    * 1 tablespoon olive oil
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 2 cups whole wheat flour
    * 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour


    In a large bowl, dissolve sugar in warm water. Sprinkle yeast over the top, and let stand for about 10 minutes, until foamy.

    Stir the olive oil and salt into the yeast mixture, then mix in the whole wheat flour and 1 cup of the all-purpose flour until dough starts to come together. Tip dough out onto a surface floured with the remaining all-purpose flour, and knead until all of the flour has been absorbed, and the ball of dough becomes smooth, about 10 minutes.

    Place dough in an oiled bowl, and turn to coat the surface. Cover loosely with a towel, and let stand in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

    When the dough is doubled, tip the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and divide into 2 pieces for 2 thin crusts, or leave whole to make one thick crust.

    Form into a tight ball. Let rise for about 45 minutes, until doubled.

    Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Roll a ball of dough with a rolling pin until it will not stretch any further. Then, drape it over both of your fists, and gently pull the edges outward, while rotating the crust. When the circle has reached the desired size, place on a well oiled pizza pan. Top pizza with your favorite toppings (sauce, cheese, meats, or vegetables).

    Bake for 16 to 20 minutes (depending on thickness) in the preheated oven, until the crust is crisp and golden at the edges, and cheese is melted on the top.

    Are you looking to add a healthier twist to your pizza nights without compromising on flavor and texture? Look no further! Our Whole Wheat Pizza Crust Recipe is here to revolutionize your homemade pizza experience.


    2 cups whole wheat flour
    1 packet (2 1/4 tsp) active dry yeast
    1 teaspoon sugar
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup warm water (110°F/45°C)
    1 tablespoon olive oil

    In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until the mixture becomes frothy.

    Add the whole wheat flour and salt to the yeast mixture. Mix until it forms a shaggy dough.

    Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes, until it becomes smooth and elastic. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour.

    Form the dough into a ball and place it in a lightly oiled bowl, turning to coat. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place for about 1-1.5 hours, or until it doubles in size.

    Once the dough has risen, punch it down to release the air bubbles and transfer it back to the floured surface. Divide the dough into two equal portions for thinner crusts or leave it as one for a thicker crust.

    Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C).

    Roll out each portion of dough into a circle or rectangle, depending on your preference, and place it on a lightly greased baking sheet or pizza stone.

    Brush the surface of the dough with olive oil and add your favorite pizza toppings.

    Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the toppings are bubbly and cooked to your liking.

    Remove from the oven, slice, and enjoy your homemade whole wheat pizza!

    With this recipe, you can indulge in the deliciousness of pizza while also nourishing your body with the goodness of whole wheat. Experiment with different toppings to create your own masterpiece. Buon appetito!
