Thin Crust Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

High fibre and tasty…yes it is possible! Next time you feel like having pizza try this thin crust recipe and top it off with your favourite ingredients.  I made a Greek pizza on Friday, and it was fantastic…try using pizza sauce, sliced tomatoes & onions, Kalamata olives, feta cheese and finish it off with a sprinkle of low fat mozzarella cheese. Next week I think I am going to make a Hawaiian pizza with the left over ham from Christmas.

This recipe makes 14 slices (of rolled out into a rectangular shape). If you are watching your carbs, each slice works out to be 14 grams carbs (17g minus 3g fibre)!

Hope you enjoy!
