Whole wheat pizza dough in your Kitchen Aid is much easier than you could ever believe. Someone once posted a comment on this blog along the lines of “oh Kitchen Aid mixer, do your wonders ever cease”?  The answer is no, no they don’t! Whole wheat pizza dough is one of the simplest things you can make yourself. If you have been scared of yeasted dough in the past, have no fear!

If you have a Kitchen Aid mixer already (or another mixer with a bread hook), you MUST try the whole wheat pizza dough recipe below. The recipe is a whole wheat version that I adapted from the cookbook that came with our Kitchen Aid mixer years ago.

Whole wheat pizza dough is also great for breadsticks. Roll it out on a cornmeal covered baking sheet until it is fairly thin. Bake for about 8 minutes.  Mix minced garlic, parsley, and a little basil with a pat of melted butter and brush over the baked bread.  Put back in the oven until it has reached your desired level of “doneness”.  When it’s done, I like to sprinkle a little parm on top.  Serve with a side of marinara or Homemade Pizza Sauce.

Whole wheat pizza dough is one of my key ingredients for go-to weeknight meals or last-minute dinners. Even better, it is the delicious and healthy foundation for homemade frozen pizzas.

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Fusion
Keyword: pizza, whole wheat
Servings: 8 slices

Ingredients
  • 1 cup of warm water about 110 degrees
  • 1 package of instant yeast I buy it in bulk, and 1 pkg = 2 & 1/4 tsp
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 3 tbsp vital wheat gluten
  • 2.5-3 cups of whole wheat pastry flour
Instructions
  1. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water, add other ingredients, and mix for 2-5 min on "stir" or "1" on the Kitchen Aid.  After it's in a nice little dough ball, drizzle a bit of olive oil around the edges of the mixing bowl, and coat all sides of the dough with the oil.  Cover with a warm wet towel, and allow to rise until doubled (time will depend on the temp of your kitchen).

  2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place a pizza stone in the oven while it heats.

  3. Sprinkle cornmeal on the hot pan, and spread the dough around with your hands or a rolling pin. Cover with your preferred toppings. Bake until the cheese is hot and bubbling (usually 15-20 minutes). Check and rotate at 10 minutes.

Recipe Notes

You can freeze the dough after mixing, and allow it to thaw and rise in the fridge overnight.  Put it in a very large container as it expands and has been known to punch out a gallon Ziploc in the past!

  1. Any tips for if I don’t have a kitchen aid mixer?? I have a husband with a strong arm and a bowl, will that work the same?

  2. Haley I just made this recipe last night, by hand- I worked wonderfully! The dough was sticky- but I rolled it out on a well floured surface, and used oil and cornmeal on the baking pan and it was the BEST pizza crust I have made from scratch.

    Thanks for the recipe, Sarah!

  3. Love homemade pizza dough. This recipe will be tried for sure. BTW-although I do have a Kitchen Aid mixer, for those that do not, pizza dough can be mixed in a food processor. Check your manual for doughs. I’ve used my processor for pizza dough since early 80’s. Now for me,it’s a little easier to get out and use. That being said, I LOVE my kitchen aid and she gets used very much during the holidays!
    Thank you for sharing your recipe!

  4. Hello! I have been looking for a good pizza dough recipe! Couple questions – what kind of flour do you use? – when you bake for 15 min is that with toppings? (may sound dumb but I’ve heard of people parbaking crust so it won’t get soggy) – what type of pan do you use? My pizzas have all been soggy in the middle and I was wondering if it was the pan. Thanks!

    • I use 1 cup bread flour and whole wheat for the rest. Add 2 tblsp vital wheat gluten if you use whole wheat.

      I bake with the toppings on. If I’m making a pizza that might get soggy in the middle, I pre-bake for about 5 minutes.

      I use a basic pizza stone from Costco. Make sure you put the pizza stone in the oven while the oven is heating up. A really hot stone will help keep the crust nice and crispy.

  5. Thank for your recipe. Will try this

  6. looks like something I can make with my little man too! I had never thought about making breadsticks with the dough too.
