Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Prep Time 1 hr 30 mins
Total Time 1 hr 30 mins


  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons 175 grams whole-wheat pastry flour, plus more for kneading
  • ¼ cup 35 grams spelt flour
  • 2 tablespoons 15 grams buckwheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon 6 grams fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon 3 grams active rise yeast
  • A bit more than 3/4 cup 195 grams warm water


  • Add the flours, salt, and yeast to a deep bowl. Whisk to blend.
  • Pour in the water, and using a wooden spoon, stir until it forms a sticky dough.
  • Lightly flour a counter or large cutting board with some of the whole wheat pastry flour. Scrape the dough onto the surface, and lightly sprinkle some more flour on top. Knead the dough 3 to 5 minutes, adding more flour only as needed, until the dough forms a smooth, round ball.
  • Sprinkle some flour into a clean, deep bowl. Add the dough to the bowl, and cover tightly with plastic film. Let sit in a warm spot until doubled in volume, about 1½ hours. Proceed with desired pizza recipe.
