Bread Machine Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Tess Geer


Here's a healthier alternative to white flour pizza dough and it tastes good too! You can use sugar or honey as the sweetener. I like my dough on the sweeter side so I use two tsp sugar or two tbs honey. This dough can be frozen if you're not using the whole batch. If you plan to use part of it right away and part of it within the next 24-36 hours, take the portion you want to save and place it in a glass bowl. Coat it in olive oil and cover with plastic wrap. It will keep fine. Let it sit out for about 20 minutes before using the refrigerated portion.

Bread Machine


1 c
2 Tbsp
2 Tbsp
olive oil
1 1/2 c
white bread flour
1 1/2 c
wheat flour
2 tsp
sugar or 2 tbs honey
1 Tbsp
1 tsp
garlic powder
1 Tbsp
italian seasoning
1 Tbsp
red pepper flakes (optional)
2 1/2 tsp
active dry yeast

Directions Step-By-Step

Place all ingredients in bread machine in order listed. Start dough cycle.
When cycle is done, add a few tablespoons of olive oil to a glass bowl. Remove dough to bowl and turn to coat.
If using immediately, stretch out onto your pan or stone with oiled hands to desired level of thickness. Let dough rest for 15 minutes.
Poke several holes throughout the surface with a fork. Top as desired and bake in a 400 degree oven for 18-20 minutes. If a crispier crust is desired, bake crust by itself for 5 minutes. Remove and add toppings and then bake for the remaining time.
If all or part of the dough is going to be used within the next 24-36 hours, leave in bowl making sure dough is coated with oil. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Let dough return to room temperature before using, approximately 15-20 minutes.
If dough is to be frozen, wrap tightly in plastic wrap. If possible, vacuum seal, otherwise wrap plastic wrapped dough in foil and place in freezer. Dough will need to thaw 4-6 hours before use.
