Wholemeal Pizza

It has been a long while since I last made pizza for my kids. 

When hub told son about our dinner, he immediately reserved 4 slices.  A rather conservative number I should say.

This is the first time I am using wholemeal flour for pizza.  I think I need to come up with more wholemeal recipes soon if not, I will have to throw away my bag of wholemeal again. 

I am almost there making round pizza.  The texture for this dough is crispy.  The wholemeal gives it a nice bite.  Overall, a rather easy dough to manage.

This recipe belongs to the pile of cut and saved.  As I can't recall where I took this from, I can't give due credit.   Sorry.

Makes two 9" Pizzas

What you need:

190g plain flour
60 Bread flour
50 Wholemeal flour
6g Instant yeast
4g Sea salt
5g Fine sugar
180g Water
20g Olive oil

For topping: (whatever to your fancy)


Knead all the ingredients together in a mixer till a smooth and developed dough is formed.

Round the dough, cover and allow it to proof for about 1 hour before punching the dough down and stretching it to fit into a 9" pizza pan.

Spread pizza sauce and top with your favourite toppings.

Proof for another 15mins before baking in a preheated oven at 200C for about 15mins or until cooked.

  1. Edith, I've never tried to make pizza at home but this sounds so simple. Love the crispy crust. Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Becoz my kids love pizza so I need to try making them at home. My son alone can finish up a 9" pizza. scary.

  2. Edith, normally I used bread flour for pizza. Seeing u used whole meal flour and the crust is crispy will definitely give it a try. And is healthy too.

  3. Hmmm...salivating ! Wish I can have some right away.

    1. hahaha Kristy sending a virtual over.

  4. I recently made a 100% whole meal pizza and I love the chewiness of it...this would appeal to my sons a lot!

    1. Jeannie you did? I am going to check yours out.

  5. look very yummy Edith! i love crispy base salami pizza...simply delish

    1. I have no alternative as my kids only love salami. Sometime can be boring in a good way I meant.
