Honey Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Whole wheat flour adds a bit of healthy to all purpose and bread flours to create an easy to work with, pliable dough.


  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup bread flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine the water, yeast and honey in a measuring cup, stir, and let the mixture sit for about five minutes (or until there are a lot of bubbles).
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients and make a well in the center. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix together with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon (you may need to add a little more flour or warm water to the dough to achieve the right consistency - not too dry, and not too sticky, it should be pliable.
  3. In a different large bowl, drizzle olive oil around the bowl, and place the dough in it, turning the dough until its been covered in olive oil. Place a kitchen towel (preferably damp) over the bowl, and store in the warmest part of your house. Let it rise for about an hour (if you want a thicker dough, let it rise for about two hours).
