We've been making pizza dough at home for quite a while now, but once we changed to home-ground whole wheat white flour our recipe just hasn't worked out quite as well. This bread machine pizza dough worked out pretty well. But, I got this Pizza: Award-Winning Pies for the Home Kitchen cookbook the other day and decided to try a recipe that's meat to be all whole-wheat flour, thinking it might work out a little better.
I made only a couple of little changes, changing the sugar to sucanat and the salt to kosher salt. Come back this afternoon for a Garlic Cheese Sticks Recipe using this crust, and a few other Superbowl Snacks recipes, too!
