Whole Wheat Pizza Dough.

Cheaper. Healthier. Easy. Delicious. 
Why not Give it a try?
This way you have control of you pizza toppings and the amount of cheese. No more of the greasy toppings and cheese that you get from most pizza chains.  Load up on your favorite veggies(peppers, onions, pineapple, mushrooms, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes) and lean meats(stick with canadian bacon and turkey options vs. your regular pepperoni and sausages).
Her is one of my fave Pizza Crust recipes.

Whole Wheat Pizza Crust:

Combine in bowl:
1 heaping Tbsp yeast
1 tsp sugar
1 cup warm water
Mix and let yeast begin to ...um... 'work'. (takes 5-10 minutes)

Add in:
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup whole wheat flour

Knead until well mixed. Then let rise for ~20-30 minutes. Roll out and top with favorite toppings.
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 425.
Makes: 1 Large Pizza- thicker crust or I like to make it into two thinner crust pizzas for an even healthier option.
What are your favorite Pizza Toppings?
