Vegetable and Hamburger Pizza 

on a Wheat Crust

Look at the array of cheeses! Mmmm array of cheeses
So this is a vegetable and hamburger pizza (is there an actual name for that that I'm just not aware of? probably, but I'm not looking it up) on a homemade wheat crust.

For the crust:

recipe from


  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

In a large bowl combine flour, wheat germ and salt. 

I added some oregano and garlic powder to my crust mixture too for extra flavor

Make a well in the middle  

and add honey and yeast mixture.

Stir well to combine. 

Cover and set in a warm place to rise for a few minutes.

Roll dough on a floured pizza pan 

and poke a few holes in it with a fork.

Bake in preheated oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until desired crispiness is achieved.

Now for the Toppings!

Tomato sauce (we had some leftover tomato puree that we used)
Cooked hamburger meat
Red and green peppers!
Cheese! - we used mozzarella, cheddar, and feta

Eat up!
