Whole Wheat Pizza Dough! This fuss-free crust is made with white whole wheat, which has all the same healthy nutrients as whole wheat, except it’s milder and lighter in color & texture!
Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
We eat pizza a lot. In fact, I’m 99.8% sure that we have our favorite pizza delivery on speed dial on our phone.
Yep, I just confirmed it. Alan programed a couple of nearby pizza restaurants on our phone.
Funny thing is, I’m not a big pizza fan. I like it, but not enough to order it as often as we do. Alan on the other hand could eat it several times a week.
There are many evenings I just want to plop myself on the couch, pour myself a glass of wine and call it dinner. That’s when the speed dial comes into play.
Pizza is such an inexpensive meal to make and I feel guilty or wasteful or just plain silly shelling out the $25 with tip when we order out, so I will make pizza at home using Trader Joe’s prepared pizza dough when I remember to buy it.
It’s a quick meal and good in a pinch, plus they sell the whole wheat dough that I prefer, but my family thinks the flavor is too harsh and earthy or “twiggy” tasting.
Economical Pizza Dough Recipe
I found an outstanding solution that’s economical, just as quick as waiting for delivery, and masks that pungent flavor that whole grains can have.
The white whole wheat flour is just as healthy as whole wheat, but it has a milder taste and comes from a lighter colored bran.
In addition, I also use quick rise yeast. By the time I gather all my toppings the dough begins to expand, but I don’t find it necessary to wait an hour for it to rise.
Now all that is left to do is pat the dough in an iron skillet or pizza stone, add your toppings and bake at 450 degrees!
Homemade Pizza Sauce
Ready made pizza sauce is convenient, but you can easily make your own sauce in minutes!

In addition, pesto is another great sauce to try on pizza.
