Easy Whole Wheat Pizza Crust Recipe

My family loves pizza, but ordering takeout can be a challenge since we have carnivores and vegetarians, so trying share pizzas isn’t happening and ordering 5 different pizzas gets pricey.  We also like our pizza well-done.  This recipe makes it all possible.  we get perfectly well-done crispy crusts with the exact toppings we want.  Using the grill pizzas cook super fast and taste more like it was cooked in a wood-fired oven.

If you don't have a pizza oven the next best thing is your grill.  You'll be amazed - this is super easy and chances are you'll never make pizza in your oven again.



  • 3 cups unbleached white bread flour
  • 1 & 2/3 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 & 1/2 cups warm water about 110 degrees
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt


  1. Combine warm water, oil, yeast and honey in a small bowl. Mix flours and salt together thoroughly in food processor or mixer. Let stand 5 minutes or until it bubbles. Add mixture while blending. Let mix 2 minutes.

  2. Knead briefly on a lightly floured surface. Place in a large oiled bowl and let stand in a warm place for 2-3 hours. It should double in size. On a floured surface roll out 1/4 of the dough or a large pizza or 1/8 for individual crusts.

  3. Now you can either freeze the crust or use them right away.

  4. To use now:

    Preheat grill to med-high.  I like my grill to be about 500 degrees.  Turn down center burner to the lowest setting and the side burners to medium.

  5. Place on heavy tin foil (preferably the non-stick kind). Grill 1-2 minutes then top with your favorite toppings. (Watching carefully to avoid burning). And finish grilling until toppings are heated through and cheese melts. 

  6. Freeze and use later:

    Top frozen crust with favorite topping and grill until crust is cooked and toppings heated and cheese bubbles.

Recipe Notes

If you are using toppings that take a while to cook like broccoli, you will want to pre-cook them.

Better than take-out.  To throw a "make your own" pizza party make individual crusts, set out toppings and an assortment of cheese and let everyone customize.
