Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Total Time

Although this dough is made with whole wheat flour, it is amazing! It fluffs up beautifully and tastes just as good as a white flour dough.


  1. Place yeast and warm water in a large bowl.
  2. Add sugar and salt to yeast mixture and stir.
  3. Add oil and stir well.
  4. Add 2 cups of flour to above mixture.
  5. Add maybe 1 more cup of flour (add flour until dough is not too sticky) and stir until combined.
  6. Turn onto floured board and knead until smooth and elastic.
  7. Put in bowl sprayed with Pam and cover with plastic wrap.
  8. Put in fridge for a couple hours or over night, pounding down the dough at least once to promote rising.

I made this recipe twice; once with whole wheat pastry flour and the other with spelt flour. I stuck the dough in the fridge for a couple hours, or so. Then I kneaded it about 40 times and stretched it over a cookie sheet. I let the dough rise again and then baked it for a short time before topping it and putting it back in to melt and crisp the toppings. Both pizzas turned out absolutely fantastic! I even left out the sugar. Thanks for a wonderful wonderful recipe:)
