Really great! I chose this for the same reason as soda girl--simple ingredients and lack of oil. I added a tsp of honey when proofing the yeast and brushed on a bit of olive oil before baking. I was really surprized and thrilled with the results. It had a nice flavor, good consistency, and tasted great as a base for my spinach pizza. This is my first try at whole wheat crust, and I'm sticking with this one. I'm someone who loves the hearty texture and strong flavor of whole grains, so I appreciated that the flavor of the crust was evident even after I added toppings. Thanks for the great recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In medium bowl, dissolve yeast in water and let sit until foamy. Add flour; mix until well combined. Stir in salt. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in warm place 45 minutes.
  3. Lightly coat 12 inch pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray. Scrape dough out of bowl and onto prepared pan. With floured hands, press dough into circles to edges of pan.
  4. Bake 15 minutes or until edges are brown and crisp. Top as desired.
