Servings: 6 servings
- 1 1/4 cup lukewarm water
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp 1 tsp salt
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning (or 1/2 tsp basil, 1/2 tsp oregano)
- 1 Tbsp active dry yeast (1 packet)
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
Place all of the ingredients into the bread machine, in the order listed. Set on dough cycle and run it.
Preheat oven to 400. If necessary, spray baking pan or dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Once complete, add some whole wheat flour to the counter and knead the dough into a ball, coating the sticky spots well with the flour.
Roll out into a large circle (or whatever shape your baking dish is) and transfer to the baking dish/pan/stone. Prepare the edges of the dough and roll out evenly.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Add sauce, cheese and toppings, then bake for another 8-10 minutes or until cheese has melted.
Slice and serve Whole Wheat Pizza.
