Whole Wheat Individual Pizza Crusts

Servings 6 

Preparation Time: 25 minutes 

Stand Time: 10 minutes   

Ingredients

  • 3⁄4 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1⁄2 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1⁄8 tsp Salt
  • 6 tbsp Water

Method

1. In a medium bowl stir together whole wheat flour, 1⁄4 cup of the all-purpose flour, and salt. Gradually stir in the water to make a soft dough, adding additional water, 1 teaspoon at a time, if necessary. Shape dough into a ball. Sprinkle some of the remaining 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour on a work surface. Knead dough on a floured surface until smooth, elastic, and slightly sticky. Cover it and let it stand for 10 minutes. 

2. After keeping it in the stand divide dough into six portions. Roll each portion between the palms of your hands into a smooth ball. Press balls to flatten and then lightly coat both sides with more of the remaining flour. Using a rolling pin, roll dough into 6-inch circles, using the remaining flour as necessary.

3. For a charcoal or gas grill, grease grill rack. Place dough circles on the rack directly over medium heat. Cover and grill for about 1 minute or until firm. Turn and grill for about 1 minute more or until it becomes puffed. Remove from grill. Using a clean, folded kitchen towel, evenly press the crusts downwards in a gently yet firmly manner. Crusts will deflate as pressed. 

4. Use immediately or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 2 months.
