Pizza is one of our favorite feel-good meals and the flavor possibilities are almost limitless. We top ours with fresh-from-the-garden grilled veggies in the summer; spinach, artichoke hearts, and olives in the winter. Whatever your topping choices may be, you have to start with a great crust. This savory whole wheat dough is flavored with garlic and herbs and makes for a tasty, chewy pizza crust bursting with flavor.

Recipe Ingredients for Savory Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

1 tbl active dry yeast
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 cup warm water
2 tbl olive oil
1 clove garlic minced or pressed
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried sage
1/2 cup cold water
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbl sugar
1 tsp salt

Recipe Directions for Savory Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

  1. Preheat oven to 450.

  2. Sprinkle yeast and 1/2 tsp sugar over 1/2 cup warm water in a 2-cup glass measure or small bowl. Stir and set aside until yeast is dissolved and mixture is foamy, about 10 minutes.

  3. In another small bowl combine olive oil, garlic, oregano, thyme, and sage. Add 1/2 cup cold water and yeast mixture and stir well.

  4. Grab your favorite food processor, and using the metal blade, add flour, 2 TBL sugar, and salt to the bowl. Turn on the food processor and pour the liquid mixture through the feed tube in a very slow and steady stream. Once dough forms a ball, process for about 30 seconds longer. (We sometimes need to add 1-2 TBL water to get the dough to form a ball.)

  5. Remove the dough ball and divide in half to make two pizza crusts. Place each dough ball onto a lightly-oiled 1117 jelly roll pan and cover loosely with oiled plastic wrap for about 15 minutes to relax the gluten.

  6. Tip: We use the back of our jelly roll pan to cook our pizza crust. It makes it easier to move the cooked pizzas from pan to cutting board!

  7. Move each dough ball to a floured work surface and roll out to desired thickness. We like a thin crust, and this recipe makes a wonderfully chewy thin crust! Dust the back of your jelly roll pan with cornmeal and move your rolled-out dough to the back of your jelly roll pan.

  8. Cook the pizza crust for five minutes and remove from oven. Flip the pizza crust over and top with your favorite vegan pizza toppings. Cook your pizza for another five minutes.
