Whole Wheat Honey Pizza Dough Recipe

I got this delicious whole wheat honey pizza dough recipe from my friend *Heather (A Mama’s Blog) a few months ago and have been enjoying it regularly ever since. It’s quick, easy and sooooo good. My family loves it too!

Whole Wheat Honey Pizza Dough

4 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
4 tablespoons honey
2 to 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cornmeal
1 tablespoon olive oil

Mix yeast, water and honey and let stand 5 min.

Combine flour through cornmeal in a large bowl.

Add liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients, stir up a bit, then add in olive oil. Knead until everything is well combined. If it seems a little dry, you can add a bit more water at this point, but I don’t generally need to.

Cover dough in a bowl with a towel in a warm place for 30 min.

Punch down and roll out dough, add toppings and bake @ 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until done.

Makes enough dough to cover one whole cookie sheet (which is what I do) or (probably) two round pizza pans. I usually end up with a little extra dough too that the kids like to roll into balls and eat or last night I used the extra dough to make a big cinnamon roll for the family to share for dessert.

Note: You should be able to use more wheat flour and less AP flour, but you might need to adjust other ingredients (like add more oil) to make the consistency work.

  1. my last try at pizza dough came out a little dry so this recipe sounds a little better. unfortunately, i used up the last of my yeast and with only a month until Passover I’m not sure if I’m going to buy more or make do…can I go a month without using yeast? I’ll have to see….lol. either way, i’ll try it after passover:-)

  2. I like to keep a batch of pizza dough in the freezer for an Emergency Quick Meal or for those nights when we don’t feel like cooking. It’s a good way to clean out the refrigerator – just dump it on the pizza!

  3. How COMPLETELY serendipitous! I was just thinking how I am totally screwed on dinner tonight – homemade pizza – because we didn’t make it to the store to pick up more sugar. I finally got to this post in my inbox and SHAZAAM! Dinner is saved! I’ve plenty o’ honey – and I wonder if brown rice syrup might work, too? Thanks, Amy. 🙂
