What you’ll need:

  • 1 (1/4 oz) package active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon pure honey

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand for about 10 minutes, or until creamy.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, wheat germ and salt; make a well in the middle, adding honey and yeast mixture. Stir well to combine, cover and set in a warm place for about 5 minutes to rise. Store in an air tight container or storage bag in the freezer, or move on to step 4.
  4. Roll dough on a floured pizza pan or stone and poke a few holes in it with a fork, let sit for about 5 minutes more and then bake in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven, add desired toppings and bake for about 20 minutes or until crust reaches desired crispiness.
