"Using half whole wheat and half all purpose flour yields a light crust with a distinctive nutty taste. Quick rising yeast shortens the rising time to just 10 minutes, making wholesome homemade pizza a possibility for busy weeknights. A food processor makes fast work of mixing the dough, but you can also use a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or a little elbow grease to do it by hand. Whichever method you choose, add enough liquid to the dry ingredients to make a soft dough. If kneading by hand, knead for about 10 minutes. The dough will keep, in a plastic bag coated with cooking spray, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days."

"As one who spends much time in my laboratory...urrr kitchen, while fine tuning my chemical processing activities...uurrummm I mean cooking skills, I have ascertained that the pureness of homemade minus the traces of methylparaben, glycerin or glutaraldehyde is far superior to its 'take-out' counterpart."
"Great recipe! Thanks for sharing. The dough would have tasted great with some herbs mixed in, which I might try the next time. Rose beautifully in about 15 minutes. Fam loved it!"
"Excellent recipe, it was exactly what I wanted. Using the food processor made it so unbelievably easy! When baked, the crust turned soft and chewy, which is just the way I like it. I also like that it's partially whole wheat. Thanks for sharing, will make again!"
"This was an awesome crust. I topped mine with lowfat sausage, spinach, feta and motz. cheese. The crust was perfect - just the right amount of crunch."
"This is exactly what I was looking for, and because it's from Eating Well, I know it's healthy too. Double kudos to you for posting it for us Greyangel! This turned out great for us. The crust was tender on the inside and had a nice crust on the bottom. I used Recipe #215908 on top of the pizza and it made one awesome tasting pizza!"
"We like a really thin dough, so I made into 2 smaller pizzas and made them personal pans for DH and I. Worked fine for us! This is my first of Zaar recipes to add to my Favorites!"
"This is so simple to make; the rising time is perfect for prepping all the toppings and sauce to put on your pizza. This made 2 9-in pizza crusts for me; I cooked my pizzas at 500 degrees for 8-10 minutes (til the cheese was bubbly) and the crust was perfect. Just a perfect recipe for pizza crust. Your pizza will likely be done before someone could deliver one far less delicious and healthy to your home."
"Great... made a super pizza with olive oil and crushed garlic spread on the crust and topped with roasted veggies (beets, red potatoes, red onions, yellow squash, tomatoes, and spinach). My husband raved about how good it was... said it was the best pizza I ever made.<br/><br/>Thanks!"
"This is a terrific recipe. This crust is super easy has a really nice flavor and texture. I like that I don't have to plan for a lot time for crust to rise. Thanks for posting. It is a family favorite. I make it about once a week now. Sometimes I add about a tsp or so of garlic powder to the crust. Last night's was loaded with pesto and tons of fresh garden veggies. Yum!"
"So, I made the dough and got to the end of the recipe before it was cooked. I just discovered that this recipe has no baking instructions."
"This is a great, easy recipe!! I used 1 cup whole wheat flour & 1/2 cup all purpose--added Italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp salt & 1/4 tsp garlic powder. I used 2/3 cup hot water, since I used more whole wheat & the dough was easy to mix with the dough hooks of my Kitchen mixer. I used it to make a 12 inch "white pizza" & it worked great. Nice & crisp; like flat bread. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!"
"I added 1T of onion powder and it had a wonderful flavor of its own. I will definately make this again!"
"i love this recipe. sooo easy and deliscious."
"I haven't reviewed this yet? Seriously? I use this recipe all the time! The husband doesn't want me to try any other recipe, he likes it that much, and I've even served it to my in-laws with great success. The food processor makes this dough come together so, so quickly, and I love that it rises right on the counter. I can make this even on a busy weeknight."
"Nice dough. I skipped the sugar, and used a light olive oil. Thanks!"
"DH and I have made this several times. I have never made anything with yeast before, so I was thrilled that it is extremely easy to make. We love the taste and the thickness was perfect for my DH and I. My parents also enjoyed this after I suggested they try it!"
