Ultimate No-Knead Whole Wheat Flour Pizza Base – Ready to use Whole Wheat Pizza Base is ridiculously simple and just as tasty, light, chewy, and crisp as a regular pizza crust!
The first time I tried this recipe, I’d been on a quest to find the perfect Whole Wheat Pizza Dough for a little while.
I was looking for a crust that, despite being made entirely of whole grain flour, wouldn’t feel heavy as a brick;
It was looking for a crust that would have nice pockets of air throughout;
I was looking for a crust that wouldn’t feel like I was eating a mouthful of bread with every single bite; it had to be relatively thin, but not too thin! I didn’t want a loaf of bread, but I didn’t want a cracker either.
More importantly, I was looking for a crust that would have a nice crunch to it.
TASTE: If I didn’t tell you this pizza crust is whole wheat, you probably wouldn’t know it.
Check out my other bread recipes:
TEXTURE: Light yet chewy with crisp edges. Perfect!
EASE: Super easy, no kneading involved. You basically just stir together the ingredients, let it rise, shape it into balls, let it rest, then shape it into a circle. The dough can be both refrigerated and frozen to make ahead of time.
APPEARANCE: Pretty perfect as far as beige balls of dough come.
PROS: Easy, tasty, and healthier than white flour dough.
CONS: Absolutely none.
WOULD I MAKE THIS AGAIN? Yes! I made a double batch to freeze so we can have pizza whenever we want.
