Whole Wheat Pizza Dough // A delicious healthy alternative to traditional white flour pizza dough. | Tried and TastyIn my quest to eliminate white flour in my cooking I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how well you can swap whole wheat flour for white flour. My favorite pizza dough recipe is one that I got from my friend many, many years ago. The moment she shared her Homemade Pizza Dough recipe with me I thought I’d never need another recipe again. Since then I’ve changed my ways. I decided to use the same recipe and just swap out the flours and cross my fingers the results would be equally as delicious. 

It worked beautifully! I love that I can still enjoy my favorite dishes and sub out some of the unhealthy ingredients for healthy ingredients and have a fantastic meal. Pizza is one of my favorite ‘cheat’ meals and it’s nice that I can indulge without feeling guilty. As great as this dough recipe is, my Whole Wheat Pizza Crust is fantastic as well. Top it with my Pizza Sauce or Spaghetti Tomato Pizza Sauce and you will fall in love at first bite.  Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
