Preheat oven to 425°F.
To prepare pizza dough, stir whole wheat flour; lightly spoon into a measuring cup and level flour.
In large mixing bowl, combine whole wheat flour, yeast and salt. Blend in water, oil and honey or sugar. Stir by hand vigorously until all ingredients are well mixed; about 3 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise to desired size.
Place dough in greased 15 x 10 x 1-inch jelly-roll pan or 12 to 14-inch pizza pan. Press dough to cover bottom of pan and up sides to form a rim.
Add pizza sauce of your choice and your favorite pizza toppings.
Bake in oven 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and toppings are done.
Rising and baking times may be extended.
Some people prefer to “pre-bake” the crust for about 3 minutes before adding the toppings.
Crust will be “crispier” than if not pre-baked.
The optional ingredient, gluten, may be added to help the dough rise – resulting in a thicker, chewier crust.
