Easy Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
This easy pizza dough is a whole wheat version to keep it slightly healthier- but it's just as delicious as regular pizza dough! Plus, it's super easy to make - and uses minimal ingredients.
Servings: 1 11-inch pizza
- 1/3 cup (80 ml) warm water
- 2 tbsp olive oil , plus more for greasing
- 2/3 cup (100g) whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup (32g) all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp (4g) instant dry yeast
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp sugar
In a small bowl, combine warm water with olive oil. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together both flours, yeast, salt, and sugar. Make a well in the center, pour in the water and oil mixture and mix until all the flour has been incorporated and the mixture pulls together into a dough. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more plain flour, if it's too dry, add more water, a little at a time.
Place your dough on a lightly floured surface and knead it with your hands until it is smooth, elastic and springs back when pressed (about 7 minutes). Shape the dough into a ball.
Grease a medium bowl with a little bit of olive oil. Place the dough inside, rolling it around the bowl to coat with oil. Cover tightly with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel and allow to rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until it doubles in size.
Punch the dough down to release the air. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured sheet of parchment paper and shape it into a 11-inch round. Now your pizza dough is ready for your favorite toppings!
Preheat the oven to 475°F (250°C). Reduce the temperature to 425°F (225°C). Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned. Enjoy!
