Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
Homemade whole wheat pizza dough made with 100% whole grain white wheat flour, yeast and water. My go-to pizza dough recipe that taste wonderful and so much healthy.
Nothing beats a fresh, homemade pizza and that is incredibly easy, healthy, and preservative -free. I have tried making pizza dough with both all purpose flour and wheat flour and the one that I like the best is the dough prepared with whole wheat flour. Wheat flour adds a nutty flavor to the pizza and it turns out to be crispy and crusty on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. Homemade whole wheat pizza dough is my standard pizza dough recipe and is so easy to make.
RECIPE DETAIL – I know making your own pizza dough may sound like too much work, but it’s not. After the yeast has activated, combine everything in a bowl, knead a soft dough, let it rise for an hour, again knead a couple of times, and you are good to go! If the yeast doesn’t get foamy or bubbly, discard and please start over again.
You can use instant yeast instead of active dry yeast. Unlike active dry yeast, instant yeast doesn’t have to be proofed, it can be added straight to the dry ingredients. Result will be the same. Use 2 teaspoon of instant yeast for this recipe.
This recipe makes enough dough for two 12 inch pizzas. Divide and roll the dough out, keep dusting the surface with cornflour as you roll. I like to bake my pizza dough before I proceed with the recipe. For that I spread a single layer of beans at the base of the pizza and bake for 10 minutes. Remove the beans and now your dough is ready to bake, top with your favorite toppings and bake until cheese is all melted and bubbly.
Dough is good in the refrigerator for 2-3 days and in the freezer for 1 month. The best part is this dough freezes beautifully. After the dough rising time, divide the dough in half or in quarters, shape them, wrap the individual round in a plastic wrap and freeze in ziploc bags. When ready to bake, thaw the dough in the refrigerator, top with your favorite toppings, sauce and bake. It works great.
