Whole Wheat Pizza

This is how it would look like if left has is, that is, if you choose same toppings :-)


This is how it would look like right before baking, that is, if you choose to fold in the edges of the dough.

This would be the final result. That is if you fold in the edges of the pizza. Either way is good. You can even make calzones with the dough and fill in with which ever other ingredients you prefer. This pizza look is just more rustic.
I actually used the same pizza dough to make chicken buffalo pizza today. My family has been asking me for quite some time to make such version. I am not a fan of poultry or meat that much but I gave it a try and it was not bad at all. My family’s favorite which means I will have to make this pizza more often!

This is the barbecued chicken pizza I make for my family. I put lots of cheese as you can see although you can put what ever you may like. Also after kneading the dough and preparing it for the filling you can leave it to rise for another 20-30 minutes before adding the toppings.

  1. This dough was wonderful. I made a 14 inch pizza and folded the edges over to make a thick outer crust. This is the first pizza I’ve ever made and it was delicious. Thanks

  2. I noticed you used a cookie sheet for one of your pizzas, that is what I generally do, so with this recipe could you do 2 regular cookie sheets worth of pizza? I’m excited to try a nice whole wheat pizza crust! Thanks for a wonderful blog, I have a bunch of recipes I want to try:)

  3. Hannah,
