Make your own healthy whole wheat pizza dough in a bread machine in minutes.
Company was coming for dinner, and we are in the process of selling our house. I didn’t have time to peruse cookbooks and blogs planning a meal, so I decided homemade pizza using freshly made whole wheat bread machine pizza dough was in order.
But why eat at the local pizza parlor where they charge a fortune for a greasy pizza, when you could have all the fun of making your own?
It was easy enough to take out the bread machine, and make my own dough. Fortunately, the bread machine wasn’t packed away yet. While the dough was making itself in the bread machine, I chopped up a few veggies, and placed all my pizza goodies on a platter.
When my company arrived we sipped our wine, while everyone chose what they wanted on their pizza. We piled on our favorite toppings, and popped our pizza in the oven.
Great conversation with good friends, terrific pizza, and good wine. That’s the way to relax when life gets crazy!

What’s good for me in this dish?
Whole wheat flour contains fiber, protein, niacin, vitamin B6 and several minerals. One of the biggest benefits of whole wheat flour over refined white flour is the boost in fiber. Most people don’t get enough fiber in their diet. Fiber is necessary to keep your digestive system functioning at its best.
Tomatoes provide a great source of vitamins C, A and K, not to mention the antioxidant and cancer preventing benefits of Lycopene. Tomatoes support colon and prostate health, and are a good source of potassium, niacin, vitamin B6, and folate to support a healthy heart.
