Fluffy Crust Whole Wheat Alfredo Pizza

Fluffy Crust Whole Wheat Alfredo Pizza

Friday night is pizza night for us.  We love it!  It is a time when we are all in the kitchen, making our favorites or creating new ones.  My oldest son wanted a white pizza.  We came up with a yummy Alfredo one!  It has a thick and fluffy, crust that has a hint of garlic and parmesan cheese.  

Next time I’ll cook it on a baking sheet and cut into squares.    Feel free to add any and everything you wish.  It will be amazing!  I adapted this recipe from the back of a package of Fleischmann’s Pizza Crust Yeast.  I love it!

Fluffy Crust Whole Wheat Alfredo Pizza

What you need

  • 2 cups King Arthur Premium Whole Wheat Flour, more if needed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoon ground garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 packet Fleischmann’s Pizza Crust Yeast
  • 2/3 cup very warm water, 120 – 130 degree F
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons oil
  • 1/2 cup Alfredo Sauce or Spread, homemade or bought. Use more or less, you decide.
  • 1/2 to 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, homemade or bought
  • your favorite toppings, optional

What to do

  • Grease pizza pan or baking sheet with sides.
  • Put 1 cup whole wheat flour, sugar, garlic, parsley and yeast in a large bowl. Whisk together. 
  • Stir in very warm water and oil.
  • Stir in parmesan.
  • Add more flour, a little at the time, until a soft dough is formed.  
  • I kneaded dough with a fork sticky and adding the flour.  
  • Stir, knead with fork, add more flour, stir, knead with fork…..you get the idea. 
  • After dough is soft, turn out on floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic adding a little dog at the time if needed.
  • I kneaded the dough with my hand in the bowl.  
  • Stretch and pat dough to fill pizza pan or baking sheet.
  • Top with Alfredo Sauce or Spread.  
  • Top with mozzarella cheese and any additional toppings you like.
  • Let pizza sit for 20 minutes.  
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F the last 10 minutes, more or less, of resting.  You know how long it takes your oven to preheat. 
  • Bake on bottom rack for 8 minutes, check and turn around cooking another 4 to 7 minutes if needed.  Crust will be very soft and fluffy.
