Healthier Homemade Pizza Dough

A healthy and quick pizza dough that comes together in a food processor and requires no rise time. What’s not to love?!




  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees with a rack in the center of the oven.
  2. Whisk together water, olive oil, honey, and yeast in a measuring cup or small bowl. Allow to proof for about 5 minutes, after which point the mixture should be frothy and puffy. 
  3. Pulse flours, salt, and parmesan cheese in a large food processor until combined.
  4. Slowly add yeast mixture and process until a shaggy ball of dough forms, about 30 seconds to a minute. 
  5. Move dough onto a floured work surface and knead a couple times until it comes together.
  6. Divide dough into two balls and roll each out into a thin round of about 12 inches.
  7. Transfer each round to a pizza pan or sheet pan and top as desired.
  8. Bake one at a time until edges are browned, 10-12 minutes depending on your toppings. 
  9. Slice and serve immediately.
