Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza with Fresh Basil & Mozzarella

Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza

I got a good one for you guys today! Everybody loves pizza, so this one is for sure a crowd pleaser. Plus, it’s 100% whole wheat, so the health-conscious people can be happy, too.

But first, I have to give you a quick update on my weekend. Now that it’s finally nice out and summer is officially here (in my opinion), my weekends are filling up with fun things, unlike the winter when it seemed like nothing was really happening (besides it snowing daily). So, in other words, get ready for some regular updates!

I headed back to the heart of the Midwest—Iowa—to see family for the weekend. It was beautiful (and hot) weather. Of course, that meant another trip to DQ for me. #everythinginmoderation


My aunt and uncle (the ones that introduced me to this quiche) made the trip to my parents’ house and we had a fun day of playing games, eating, and catching up since it had been way too long since I’d seen them.


It was a fun weekend, but it sure was nice coming back home again and getting outside between during scattered rain showers to catch Philip up on my weekend.

So anyway, back to the recipe that I know you’re eagerly waiting for. :)

This pizza crust recipe is a family favorite—for Philip and myself, but also for my brother’s family. My sister-in-law is the one who originally gave me this recipe several years ago and it has been my go-to pizza crust recipe ever since. It’s simple, fast, and delicious—could I ask for anything more?
