Whole Wheat Pizza Dough (South Beach Phase 2 ) | dietplan-101.com

Whole-wheat flour (or wholemeal flour) is made by grinding the whole grain of wheat (a.k.a. wheat berry) that has not undergone heavy processing.  It is a full-flavored flour and has a textured, brownish appearance. Whole-grain whole wheat flour is rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and protein.


  • 10.5 oz (297 g) whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsps instant dry yeast
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 2/3 cup warm water (120°F/50°C)
  • 2 tsps olive oil


  1. Mix flour, yeast, salt, and sugar in a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment (or food processor) until well combined.
  2. Mix warm water and olive oil in a measuring cup, then pour in the liquid gradually and mix until a dough ball is formed (add extra 1-2 tbsps of water if the dough is too dry).
  3. When a dough ball is formed, continue kneading it for 1 minute.
  4. Cover the dough and let it rise for 1 hour (at room temperature 85°F/30°C), or until doubles in size.
  5. Lightly flour a clean surface, then roll the dough ball into a flat round pizza base (about 11-inch).
  6. You can cover the pizza base with an oiled plastic sheet and keep it refrigerated for up to 2 days.
  7. Bake the pizza dough at 375°F /190°C for 20 minutes to make a pizza crust. (Each whole wheat pizza crust: 182 g Net Carbs.)
