Easy Whole-Wheat Pizza Dough

Makes enough dough for 2 thin crust pizzas or one very deep dish pizza



  1. In a large bowl or standing mixer, combine sugar, oil, water and yeast. After this combo sits for about 5 minutes, it’ll look puffy and bubbly. That’s the yeast working its magic.
  2. Add flour, cheese and salt. I use the dough hook on my stand mixer but you could plus in a food processor (about 1 minute) orĀ  just mix it with a big sturdy spoon. You want your dough to come together into a big sticky ball.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for about 1 minute until it’s less sticky. Press the heel of your palm in, fold, press, fold, press, repeat.
  4. Cut dough into 2 parts. You’ll have enough for 2 thin-crust pizzas or 1 very deep dish pizza. Grease a pan with olive oil and arrange your dough on top. Lightly brush crust with a little more olive oil.
  5. Add marinara sauce and top with cheese plus any other toppings you enjoy.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes at 500 degrees F.
