Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Making homemade whole wheat pizza crust from scratch is not as hard as you may think. Give this recipe a try and enjoy some family time while you make your pizza dough.

This recipe uses half whole wheat and half white flour because when you use all whole wheat flour it becomes more dense. You can increase the whole wheat and decrease the white flour to make it healthier if you want but you may not be able to get away with it if you are serving kids.

Children love to cook and are even willing to try new foods when they have a hand in it. Your kids may be willing to try and even like whole wheat pizza when you have fun making it together!

Dear Deb, We make pizza at home frequently now. Everybody loves it. They like it much better than pizzeria pizza. We put all kinds of different toppings on it. Thanks for getting us started! Love, Jessica
