Whole Grain Pizza Dough Recipe

whole wheat pizza dough recipe for food processor

Making pizza dough is quick and easy in a food processor. You won't spend a lot of unnecessary time and energy kneading the dough. Whole wheat flour makes this tasty pizza crust a healthy and delicious choice.




1 package or 2 teaspoons active dry yeast

Small pinch of sugar

1/2 cup warm water

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 1/4 to 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour



Combine the water, sugar and yeast in the food processor work bowl fitted with a dough blade. The sugar helps "wake up" the yeast, giving them something to eat. In a few minutes you should see a few bubbles appear. This means the yeast is ready.

Add 1 cup of whole wheat flour, the salt and olive oil. Pulse a few times to combine. Add another 1/4 of flour and pulse a few times again. If the dough starts to clean the sides of the bowl and form a ball in the center, you don't need any more flour. If not, add a little more and try again. After a ball is formed, switch the food processor to "on" and let run 1 minute to knead the dough.

Place the dough in a greased bowl, turning over to grease the top. Cover. Let the dough rise for in a warm place until it is doubled in size (about one hour.) Punch dough down.

Grease a 14 inch pizza pan with olive oil. Press dough across bottom of pan. Add sauce and toppings as desired. Bake at 475° F for 15 to 20 minutes.
