Recipe by Garden Girl
We've used this recipe for years so we've had lots of time to tweak it. The whole wheat adds extra flavour, texture, and its heart smart.

A very good pizza base. I love the wholemeal & the kids did'nt even notice. This made 4 large pizzas. Why buy take away when you can make it at home. Thanks for sharing Garden Girl Reviewed as part of PAC 2007.
- 1 1⁄2 cups beer
- 3⁄4 cup warm water
- 1⁄4 cup oil
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 1⁄2 cups white flour
- 2 tablespoons yeast
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine sugar with yeast and warm water, allow to sit until frothy, about 5-7 minutes.
- Combine dry ingredients.
- Mix in the oil, beer, and yeast mixture.
- Knead the dough well, adding flour as needed until the dough is no longer sticky but is still soft and pliable.
- Allow the dough to rise in a warm place. I usually stick it into a slightly warmed oven (no more than 100°F) covered with a clean tea towel. Allow to rise for whatever amount of time you have, I usually let it rise just as long as it takes me to cut toppings and grate cheese for the pizza.
- Role the dough for your pizza pans, your dough should be about 1/2cm (1/4") thick. Allow to rise on the pans for about 10-20 minutes before topping your pizzas.
- Bake in a hot oven (375°-400°F) for about 10 minutes or until the cheese in golden brown and the underneath of the crust is golden brown.
- Slice and enjoy.
