Whole grain and flax make this crust nutritious as well as delicious. The perfect combination of crispy, chewy, tender, and fluffy. Top dough with sauce, toppings, and cheese and bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) on the lower third of the oven using a perforated pizza pan for 12 to 16 minutes.

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix water, yeast, and honey together in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook; let sit until yeast is dissolved, about 5 minutes.

  • Combine bread flour, whole wheat flour, flax seed meal, and salt in a bowl. Add flour mixture and olive oil to yeast mixture. Mix on low speed for 5 minutes. Increase speed to high and knead for 5 minutes more. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place until dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.

  • Transfer dough to an oiled work surface about the same size as the pizza pan. Flatten dough with oiled hands by pressing it in the middle and working to the edges until dough has been flattened to the size of pizza pan.

  • Oil the pizza pan and invert it over the dough. Pick up the work surface and the pizza pan and invert the whole stack so the dough ends up on the pizza pan. If the dough doesn't come off right away, just set it down and the dough should fall onto the pizza pan within 5 minutes. Pull the edges of the dough to the edge of the pizza pan; let rest for 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

This recipe can also be made in a bread machine; add water, olive oil, salt, honey, flax seed meal, whole wheat flour, bread four, and yeast, in this order, to bread machine and set to dough cycle.

This crust was great! Soft and chewy even though it was healthy. I used all ww flour instead of using bread flour and it still turned out great! This will be my standby easy healthy crust recipe. Read More

We enjoyed this. I will admit that I didn't use this as a traditional pizza crust. I wanted something without toppings so after the dough rose I rolled it out into portion size pieces brushed the pieces with olive oil and cooked them in a cast iron skillet. Very tasty with a slice of cheese for our lunch. Read More
