Have you ever met anyone who DIDN’T like pizza? I have come across a lot of picky eaters in my time and I can’t remember one who has an aversion to this king of all dishes. It’s kind of a no-brainer: yummy toppings on top of a crispy bread crust, baked until bubbly and delicious. The best part is that you can very simply make a slew of variations on the original theme so that everyone in your family is happy.

For any pizza aficionado, the true sign of great pizza is the crust. It all starts and ends there. In my experience, whole wheat pizza dough can either be delicious or as heavy and dense as a rock. This recipe uses half wheat and half white flours, so it has some added nutrition while also staying light and airy. I usually make a batch and then keep it around for whenever my family is in the mood — what’s better then having frozen pizza dough in the freezer that’s ready to be topped with all your favorite goodies?

On Monday I made one for my and Kenya’s lunch with simple red sauce and veggies, last night I made one for my husband with pesto and mozzarella and I still have 2 servings of dough left for whenever we need or want more. No dialing out for dinner, no wasting money on delivery or takeout, just healthy, homemade pizza that you can enjoy any time, AND it doesn’t come out of a box from the freezer section!

    1. Can you please make a video for this? Every time I try to make it, it never comes out correct. 🙁

    2. This turned out delicious! We actually made a taco pizza with salsa, leftover taco mix (ground turkey and beans) and cheese. It was awesome and rolled out beautifully! Thank you again for a yummy, successful recipe from Weelicious.

    3. The only problem with this recipe is that it’s called whole wheat, and whole wheat means it uses all whole wheat flour. So, this recipe should just be called wheat pizza dough. I did do all whole wheat flour and it was delicious. I thought I would just put that out there so people who, but thanks for the recipe.

    6. This was one of my first successes using yeast – yay! I made two batches a couple weeks ago and froze them. We pulled out the first, (less successful) batch today, and it turned out great! Thank you for another wonderful recipe to decrease our reliance on packaged foods!

    7. The texture of this crust is absolutely spot-on! I’m so excited… usually pizza crusts of this variety are dense too chewy. I love the little crisp and slight chewiness of this crust!
