  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons dry active yeast
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon vital wheat gluten
  • 2 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Use a fork to combine water, yeast, and sugar in a small bowl--set aside until foaming. If mixture won't foam, you may want to start over from scratch.
  • Combine all remaining ingredients (except applesauce) in large mixing bowl. Add foamy yeast and applesauce. If dough is too sticky to handle with your fingers, add a tablespoon of flour. If it's too dry to hold together, add a teaspoon or more of water. Knead dough for just a minute or two.
  • Set dough aside in a warm place for 1 hour, or until it doubles in size. Preheat oven to 415 degrees F.
  • Knead, stretch, and roll out dough to fill pizza pan.
  • Cover with your favorite sauce and toppings.
  • Bake pizza at 415 degrees F for 15 minutes, or until dough is cooked through and golden brown.
