Preview: This Whole Wheat Pizza Dough for a bread machine recipe has a touch of honey to make it memorable. Whole wheat has never tasted better.
This Honey Whole Wheat Pizza Dough gets a fiber and flavor boost with some whole wheat flour and honey. Mix it up in a bread machine for the best texture ever. This pizza crust is a great way to get more whole grains into your diet. After all, isn’t that why you eat pizza? (wink, wink)

What do you do when you get a less-than-glorious report about your cholesterol or some other important body chemistry?
I try to add more whole grains to my diet. For years, guilt about eating pizza drove my search for an irresistible whole wheat pizza dough.
Being a fan of California Pizza Kitchen, I just happen to have a couple of their cookbooks. I thought it might be worth trying their recipe for Honey Whole Wheat Pizza Dough since they seem to know a thing or two about pizza. Turns out, I loved it and think you will, too.
I realize this pizza dough recipe is not 100% whole wheat, but it’s better than none. Right? Of course, the original recipe wasn’t written for a bread machine, but I simply won’t do it any other way. So, I changed the directions and adjusted the amounts to fit the size of most bread machines.
Ingredients and Substitutions
- Flour: I like bread flour in pizza dough because it seems a bit chewier. You can use either bleached or unbleached all-purpose flour if you don’t have bread flour.
- Oil: Olive oil is my calling card when it comes to pizza dough. I use it in the dough and then, more in the pan. It just has so much flavor. You don’t want to miss out.
- Yeast: Anytime you are using a bread machine, instant yeast or bread machine yeast makes it easy. You can also use active-dry-yeast as a substitute. The amounts are the same. You no longer need to dissolve it before using, but beware that it can be slower to rise.
