Whole Wheat Pizza Dough Recipe

Hi.  I'm new to this forum but have been baking my own whole wheat bread for 5 years now.  I love it!  I own a Bosch and a Nutrimill.  I am looking for a good recipe for making whole wheat pizza dough.  I've never made my own pizza dough and would like to start.  I always weigh my bread dough and was wondering how many oucnes pizza dough should weigh?  What about if I wanted to make individual calazones as well...how much should they weigh?

Hi, I have made the one in the recipe section of the handbook on this site. It was posted by jmonkey and is very good.It uses 60% whole wheat

I use about 10 ounces of dough per pizza because that is about the right amount of dough for my stone. It also takes about 10 minutes to cook in my oven at max temperature.

I use Hamelman's Whole Wheat Levain recipe. I think it is 50/50 but I have made it with higher whole wheat percentage with good results. The recipe makes 3 large pizzas. I leave the dough in the refrigerator at least one night, but I have left it in there for four days with delicious results. I have substituted whole spelt flour too.

Hi I was hoping you would share your own ww bread recipe?


I am trying to find a recipe for whole grain bread (or better yet multigrain...low fat, high proteina & fibe) with nutritional content. Any idea how I could do that?


Also I posted one of PR ww pizza dough recipes on my blog (with my notes or chages added). It is wonderful.

The Country Baker also sells a wonderful recipe book called Wildflour on her website filled with MANY wonderful recipes for the Bosch & Nutrimill.


Yes, I LOVE my Nutrimill and am so glad that I have it.  I buy my grains from a local store in Phoenix that sells the Bosch and Nutrimill and all supplies to make bread.  But you can buy grains directly from Montana Milling (the hard white wheat Prarie Gold is what I use) and also directly from Pleasant Hill Grain.  It just costs more to ship but if you don't have a local place to buy it from than it's better than nothing.

I, too, have the Nutrimill and Bosch.  I make three loaves of bread a week. There is absolutely nothing better than fresh ground flour. It is one of the best investments I've made.  I also get the same kind of wheat as Sharon.
