Nutrition for Runners: Whole-Wheat Pizza Crust

Tonight’s recipe is a healthy take on pizza. This whole wheat pizza crust my wife and I have used on a couple of occasions comes from the WeightWatchers New Complete Cookbook.

This recipe offers a more nutritious option to the usual pizza crust made with all-purpose flour.

To make this you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 cups of warm water

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 1 package dry active yeast

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/4 cups whole-wheat flour

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt

Once you have the dough ready top as you see fit. We tried have tried a few different combos and even tried cooking the pizzas on the bbq which worked out well.
