As you're looking for simple holiday recipes, there are so many that use ready-made, refrigerated dough. Instead, consider making your own Whole Wheat Pizza Dough. You'll avoid trans fats, preservatives, and be able to add a little fiber and flavor to your family's diet. Once you get the hang of working with whole wheat dough, it's easy to use it to make lots of great family foods–homemade pizza, calzones (either with pizza fillings or broccoli & cheese), breadsticks, and more!
- 1 pkg yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp loose yeast)
- 1 Tbsp white sugar
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 cups white flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
Rather than use refrigerated processed dough, I use this Whole Wheat Pizza Dough for my Pizza Pinwheels. They get snapped up at every party and potluck!
