Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Posted Feb 04 2010 8:00am

I made some AWESOME whole wheat pizza dough for dinner last night! Instead of my usual pizza doughI tried a new 100% whole wheat pizza recipe. For a dough that is 100% whole wheatit is actually pretty light and crispy. I was expected it to be sort of dense and chewybut I was pleasantly surprised. Maybe it was because I let it rise for a few hours while I was at work? I prepped the dough after I lunch so it would be ready when I got home. It was perfect :)
