Instructions

Tired of the usual frozen pizza dough from the market or those pizzas from the famous brands? Use this recipe to produce your own whole wheat dough from scratch!

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Whisk together flour, and baking powder and salt in the bowl of the electric mixer.
  • Put the water and oil to the in the mixer where the dry ingredients are combined. Stir well until the mixture sticks together. If the dough is a bit stiff or dry, you can add a little water.
  • Dough may be somewhat gluey. Rub oil your to keep it from sticking to the dough while kneading. Work with the pizza dough to form it into a ball. Lightly flour your work area and knead the dough and pat into a disk. When the dough sticks so much to your work area, always remember to dust a little flour to prevent it from sticking.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into 5-6 inch round. Roll dough from the center outwards so the dough spreads evenly.
  • Slightly stretch the dough to your desired size then assemble and flatten into a greased 14 inch pizza pan or a 10 inch pan for a thicker crust. Unevenly shaped dough gives it rustic look so don’t worry about the perfecting the edges.
  • Brush the outside edge of the crust lightly with olive oil. This gives it a nice golden luster after baking. Poke little holes using a fork or toothpick along the crust, this will prevent from bubbling up in one section, and will facilitate the air evenly while baking.
  • Spread sauce and other ingredients on pizza crust. Go light on the sauce to prevent your pizza from being mushy. The key to a great pizza is not to overdo the toppings, in this way, all the flavors are enhanced rather than overpowering them.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-25 minutes or when the crust turns to a golden brown color.
  • Is pizza shaping your dilemma? If the dough bounces back a lot while you are trying to shape it, let it rest for a few and try again. Letting the dough to sit and relax allows the gluten in the dough to slack and should make shaping easier.

    Tip: This recipe is made ideally with an electric mixer. Using a portable hand mixer is not an option. If you do not have an electric mixer, simply knead the dough by hand until smooth and workable. A baker’s peel is a large flat shovel used to slide pizza into a pizza oven. For a regular oven, use a large flat tray, a baking sheet, or a pizza pie pan.
