Honey Whole Wheat Pizza Dough Recipe by Picky Palate

You are in for such a treat with my Honey Whole Wheat Pizza Dough recipe! I have been making pizza for a couple weeks now and cannot stop! I used to stock up on store-bought dough from Trader Joe’s like it was going out of style. I still love it, but there’s something about making your own pizza dough in your kitchen that can’t be beat!

My recipe could not be more simple to prepare. No waiting for the dough to rise, it’s literally done in about 15 minutes.

So excited for you to make your own dough for your family, not only does it taste incredible, your house smells like a dream too!

I love the sweetness the honey gives the dough. Mmm! We like to use local raw honey.

Form dough into a round ball. You can bake it at this point, cut it into fourths for individual pizzas, or refrigerate in a Ziploc bag.

 My boys love making their own pizzas, so I usually cut this dough into fourths and store in the refrigerator or freezer. I put one of these baggies into the fridge and baked it after 1 week and it worked great.

    There’s nothing quite like fresh pizza dough just made at home. So much better than the store bought versions. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  2. Emma Budraitis

    Would using best flour change this recipe? And if I wanted to make twice as much should I double all the ingredients or make two separate batches.

  3. Jackie

    Hi! I have a question, I’ve only used regular whole wheat flour for baking and cooking. Do you find white whole wheat flour better? Is it a different consistency or is it just white as opposed to brown? Thanks!

  4. Ashley @ Windy City Wanderer

    This looks like the easiest, tastiest Bread I have seen!! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Lindsay

    I Love thick, fluffy pizza dough! This is a must try and the little bags of dough are too cute!

  6. Matthew Horbund - mmwine

    First, like the others, I loved the photo! THe heels and skirt definitely upscaled the shot! Never give your secrets away … dirty hair DONT CARE ๐Ÿ™‚

    Second, love the recipe, and I will try it. I’ve failed, miserably, at making pizza dough. I’ve used ALL of the “best” recipes, and I just suck at it. However, no one really laid out the steps like you do. That may be the key. I’ll try it in a few weeks when the family is over and see.

    I’m curious about storage. You mentioned that it lasts in the fridge a week. Is that the average? What about the freezer?


    1. Jenny

      I only tested the dough for a week in the fridge but it may last longer. You should probably be good for a month in the freezer. I put one in the freezer, took it out a couple of days later, baked it about 4 days later and it was fine. Good luck!

  7. Tieghan

    Your skirt and shoes are the cutest! Love that first photo!!

    And I mean the pizza dough?!? Yum!! Sound and looks so good! Homemade pizza is the best!

  8. Liz @ The Lemon Bowl

  9. Thea

    This looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it!! I’ve had great luck with Ina Garten’s pizza dough recipe too, love T.J.’s, but it puts their dough to shame!

  10. Karen

    Loved the picture with your shoes in the background. This looks like a very good recipe and look forward to making it. Thank you so much. Truly enjoy your blog.

  11. Valerie

    Looks great. Can’t wait to try this recipe. Question-can you use butter instead of olive oil?

    1. Jenny

      I have not tried it and I love that idea. I think it would work but I just haven’t tested it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Jenny

      Hi Janice, I’m sorry I haven’t tried it without a dough hook. However, if you try another way, try it by hand. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Meagan @ A Zesty Bite

    What a fun set up! I’m going to start making pizza dough in heels and full makeup.

    Love a good dough recipe and I like packaging that you did.

  13. Tessa @ Handle the Heat

    I think I might come over for some pizza, and a raid of your closet now that we’re neighbors!!

  14. Leigh Anne Wilkes @YourHomebasedMom

    I am a Trader Joe’s pizza dough girl myself but now I think I’ll be making it at home! Love, love that first shot of you!!

  18. Sylvia

    I’ve never had much luck with making pizza dough, but yours sounds so easy and I love that it’s ready in 10 minutes. Maybe I’ll give it another go because I really want to make my own dough. Love your green Kitchen Aid. Mine is the plain white.

  19. Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness

    Ohmygosh I am IN LOVE with that first photo! Definitely agree with Averie,as I am sitting here in my pjs and not washed hair!
    I am also diggin the green KitchenAid…I wish mine was a fun color!
    This pizza dough looks dynamite, and I love that it is whole wheat! Homemade pizza dough is always the way to go!

    1. Jenny

      Thank you Taylor. I had to laugh at yours and Averie’s comments because I had no make-up on, dirty hair and had not had a shower for the day, lol! Looks can be be deceiving ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for your comment ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Whitney Jordan

    You had me at ready in 15 minutes!! I can’t wait to try your recipe. I love that it has honey in it and can be refrigerated for later use. My family will love this ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    What gorgeous dough! I love the opening shot of you, too ๐Ÿ™‚ Gosh, you are so polished & put together, Jenny! Whoa. I am lucky if my hair is even fairly recently washed, let alone heels and a skirt ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love making my own pizza dough too. So much better & cheaper than storebought! Pinned

    1. Jenny

      Averie! I am cracking up because it sure looks like I was put together, but I had been to the gym that morning, no make-up on and dirty hair. Funny how a dress and heels can make the picute “look.” Lol! xo
