Friday night is something I look forward to ever since my husband started making homemade pizza, crust and all. I really look forward to the nights that he uses this whole wheat crust. I'm not into whole wheat but this crust is FANTASTIC!

We use the No Cook Pizza Sauce that I have posted on JAP, We also put thinly sliced seeded Roma tomatoes on top of the sauce and raw thinly sliced cloves of garlic on prior to the final cheese layer. These two minor and trivial additions make the flavor pop to the next level. Don't fry the sausage! Poach in a bit of water for a more tender sausage.

How to Make Tina's Whole Wheat Pizza Crust


  1. Dissolve yeast in warm milk. Rest to bloom for 10 minutes.
  2. Add honey, oil and salt. Mix in flour. Let stand 90 minutes ( to soften the whole wheat bran bits)
  3. Meanwhile preheat your oven to 425 degrees with the pizza stone placed in the mid to lower 1/3 level of the oven. Preheat stone 20-30 minutes.
  4. Gently punch down dough. Knead in a stand mixer on speed 2 for 4 minutes or by hand for 8-10 minutes.
  5. Prep your toppings. Slice the mushrooms, slice or shred the cheeses, remove casings if needed, crumble and poach the sausage etc.
  6. Divide in two. Freeze one half for later. Form into a ball and rest on a large piece of parchment paper, covered for 10 minutes. Roll out in to a pizza size crust. (14-16 inches)
  7. Dock crust with a fork (poking holes across the bottom of the crust with a fork to prevent puffing) Slide parchment on to stone and pre-bake crust for 10 minutes
  8. top with sauce, mushrooms, sausage, cheese...etc. Return parchment to stone and bake an additional 10 minutes.
