WFMW: Light WW Pizza Dough

As my family has switched over to eating just whole grains, we've looked for a better pizza dough. It's hard to use just whole wheat flour, because you get more of a flatbread than a pizza dough. But here's a recipe that combines the best of both worlds, more whole grains and a nice tasty dough.

This crisp, flavorfull and almost fat-free dough helps ease the guilt of eating pizza!


1 3/8 cups water
2 TBS unsweetened apple sauce
1 TBS sugar
1 1/2 Tsp salt
2 2/3 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/3 cups all purpose or unbleached white flour
2 1/2 Red Star Active Dry Yeast (I don't use Fleishmans)

Place all the ingredients in your bread machine bread pan.

Select the dough setting and press start.

When the dough has risen long enough, the machine will beep. Turn off the bread machine, remove the bread pan, and turn out the dough onto a lightly floured countertop or cutting board. Cut the dough in half, as this will make two 12 - 14" pizzas. Weap dough in plastic wrap that has been lightly coated with olive oil. Set aside to rest for 15 minutes.

Lightly oil 2 12-14" pizza pans (or a pizza stone covered with parchment lightly oiled.)

Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a circle slightly smaller than the pizza pan you plan to use.

Place the dough into the pizza pan and gently stretch it to fit.

Cover dough and let rise on countertop for 20-30 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Spread your sauce and toppings of choice onto the pizza dough and bake on middle shelf of oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until brown and crispy.

Remove from oven and serve immediately.

Ooh, this sounds great. I'm going to try it this next week! But why don't you use Fleishman's yeast?

Also, do you ever use whole wheat pastry flour, also sold sometimes as white whole wheat flour? It's still 100% whole wheat, but made from a different wheat berry, and it's a lot smoother and lighter than regular whole wheat flour. I use it in everything I bake (including cakes and cookies!) and you really can't tell the difference.

Thanks for the recipe!!
