The refrigerator light goes on...

Using whole wheat pizza dough for pizza recipes is a great way to get extra fiber. The dough has more body than regular pizza dough and a mellow, sweet flavor. And it adds 6 grams of fiber to your diet!


Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Servings: 4 | Serving size: enough dough for 4 individual pizzas

Cooking Time: 90 Minutes

This recipe can be multiplied or divided by 2. This dough will keep for about 36 hours in the refrigerator if wrapped tightly in plastic wrap. It will not be as good as fresh.

a ball of whole wheat dough on a wooden counter


  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp dry active yeast
  • 4 tsp honey
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Place the yeast and honey in a large mixing bowl and pour the heated water over the mixture, stirring until well blended. Let the mixture stand for about 5 - 7 minutes until foamy.

Add the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour and salt and stir with a fork until a coarse dough forms.

Continue to mix by hand until a dough ball forms and all the flour is well blended.

Cover the bowl and place it in a sink with about 4 inches of hot water in the bottom. The heat from the warm water will help the dough rise. The dough will double in size in about 30 - 40 minutes. Punch it a few times with your fingers and let it rise another 30 minutes.

Remove from the bowl and cut the ball into four equal pieces. Cover the dough that you are not going to use immediately in plastic wrap and chill.
