It’s so easy to prepare! Just mix all of the ingredients together, let it rise for 4 hours and TADA, you’ve got pizzas! πŸ˜€



Whole Grain {Grilled} Pizza Dough

adapted from sweet road


  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup flax seed
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • dash garlic powder

  3. Cover and let sit for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours, in a warm place.

  5. Separate the dough into individual pizzas (3-5 pizzas).
  6. Place the dough on greased plates.
  7. Next, top it with your favorite toppings (I chose tomato sauce, sliced tomatoes, spinach, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, turkey pepperoni, and mushrooms).
  8. Spray the grill with cooking spray.
  9. Slide the pizzas onto the grill.
  10. Close the lid of the grill and cook for about 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbling.

  1. I think I might try this but using all whole wheat! And in the oven because we don’t have a grill here.

    I also experimented with whole wheat pizza recipes forever, but I finally just decided to replace 100% of the white flour with whole wheat flour in this recipe: http://smittenkitchen.com/2007/09/pizza-even-sweeter/ It’s sooo good. I started using all 100% whole spelt and prefer that, but all whole wheat is great too. I guess I should say that I live in Germany and flour isn’t exactly the same, but I don’t think it’d be that different. And it comes out really, really amazing on a pizza stone. I don’t have a pizza paddle so I just sprinkle a baking sheet with a bit of cornmeal. I think it adds a nice crunch. πŸ™‚

  2. Grilled pizza is the bomb! We all love it but when I found your whole grain recipe I was very happy since it meant that I could make it a bit healthier! I use low fat cheese anyway, which no one knows except me! Hubby would never eat it if I told him that! Thank you for sharing this!!

  3. Oh my! I made this for dinner tonight. Wanted a recipe using whole wheat pastry flour. Made a 1/2 batch. Baked 1/2 in the oven on my new pizza stone since it is only 52 degrees out! Saving the rest in the fridge for another day. I did not have flax seed but used 1/4 cup of almond flour. I learned that pizza dough REALLY rises in the oven. LOL Found a recipe for white pizza sauce. Used that, dry salami and fresh mozzarella. So quick to make… great flavor too! Family coming next week for spring break. I think we will have pizza… Thank you for a great recipe! I am only 6 years later on posting…

    1. I’m so happy to hear that, Joyce! Pizza dough is so fun and you could even split it up into little sections and have everyone make their own pizzas. πŸ™‚ Enjoy your family time for spring break!
