Pizza Dough?

I'm looking for a good homemade whole wheat pizza dough recipe. I'm trying to eat better and have removed all the pizza delivery coupons from my frig but occassionally still need pizza. Any recipes or ideas are welcome!

I hae a decent whole wheat recipe somewhere.

Make a sponge, let it work in the fridge overnight. Make a dough, let it 'age' in the fridge for a day, two days is better.

Aging the dough is the secret behind good pizza.

I have a good recipe from Peter Reinhardt - one of those well-known bakers who has several books out. However, his recipe is using regular flour. I altered it by using half whole-wheat and half regular flour. i may be mistaken but I think most recipes for whole wheat call for some amount of regular flour as well. Anyways, the final product came out great!! I used King Arthur Whole Wheat and King Arthur Regular All-Purpose Unbleached flour. The directions are very thorough. Unfortunately, I have this recipe in a document, so that I cannot copy and paste, but if youre interested I can email it to you. Let me know!

I use my regular recipe but substitute 1 cup of KA white whole wheat - it works great.

Maybe this would be worth considering, but it uses a bread machine for the dough:

Wheat Pizza Dough

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp. dry active yeast
1/2 tsp. salt
4 tsp. olive or vegetable oil
2/3 cup warm water

1. Place the ingredients into your bread machine, following the order recommended by the manufacturer.

2. Select the dough cycle on your machine, and press start.

3. Remove the dough when the cycle ends, and roll out to a 12" circle (14" if you want thin crust).

4. Sprinkle cornmeal (approx. 1 Tbsp.) over your pizza pan, and place the dough on the pan.

5. Top with sauce and your choice of ingredients. Then, bake at 490 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Use a fork to pop any air bubbles half-way through the cook time.
