I recently tried making a whole wheat pizza crust and was extremely pleased with the result!
1 ¾ - 2 ½ cups whole wheat flour or white whole wheat flour
1 ½ envelope pizza crust yeast
¾ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon honey
2/3 cup very warm water (120 – 130 degrees)
3 tablespoons olive oil
Combine 1 cup flour, yeast, and salt. Stir in water, honey, and oil. Mix together until well blended (about 1 minute).
Gradually add ½ cup flour until soft dough ball is formed. Add more flour if needed.
Knead on a floured surface, adding more flour as needed until smooth & elastic (about 4 minutes). Honestly, I just knead enough flour into it until it’s not so sticky. It’s probably more like 2 or 3 minutes.
Place the dough in a greased bowl, turn to coat, cover with plastic wrap, and place in cold oven with light on. Let rise for 20-30 minutes.
Grease pizza pan (I swear by a stone but a regular pan is okay too). Sprinkle some cornmeal on pan. Press dough out to fill pan or roll dough to 12-inch circle (or desired size/thickness). Top with desired sauce and toppings. Let sit for 10-20 minutes. You can skip this sitting time…it will still be great but not as thick and soft (which you might prefer!).
Bake on bottom rack at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until done.
