  • Bread machine


  • 4 C whole wheat flour
  • 1 packet bread machine yeast approx 2.5 tsp
  • 1.5 C warm water
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 C grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp dried minced garlic (up to 1 tsp, if you like a stronger garlic taste)


  • Add the water, then olive oil, followed by: flour, sugar, salt, Parmesan cheese, garlic to bread machine.
  • Then poke a little indent in the top of the dry ingredients and pour the yeast into the hole.
  •  Turn your bread machine on and choose the “dough” setting. Sit back and let your bread machine take over! (This process takes my machine about 1.5 hours.)

  • Remove finished dough from bread machine.
  • Decide if you want to keep your dough in one piece (for a larger pizza) or you can break the dough evenly into two balls for two pizzas. We have actually been able to get 2 smaller thinner crust pizzas out of 1/2 of the dough, so in other words, 1 batch of this recipe tends to yield 4 thin crust pizzas, approx 8ish inches in diameter. Great for personal pizzas!

  • Set dough aside to let rise for 20 minutes.
  • IF FREEZING DOUGH: Label a Ziploc bag for each ball of dough and spray the inside of each bag with non-stick cooking spray. Place each ball of dough in a bag and stick in the freezer.

  • IF EATING NOW: Roll pizza dough out and place on a pizza stone. Add toppings. We bake this dough (with toppings) for about 20 minutes at 350 F. (You could also place the dough on a pizza stone, bake for 5 minutes at 350 F, then flip the dough over, add toppings, bake for an additional 15-20 minutes.)
