Homemade whole wheat pizza!

Aloha and welcome to my first blog post, I hope you'll enjoy what you find here and I look forward to hearing from you.

Tonight, its pizza for dinner.  I've had success making pizza dough in my bread maker and have been experimenting with increasing amounts of whole wheat flour and lower amounts of white flour.  Part of the reason is for the health benefits of whole wheat versus processed white flour, and because I'm South Beaching it and whole wheat is "allowed" and white flour isn't. (I'm generally a rule follower, but less and less as I get older!)

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough (made in bread maker on dough setting); makes enough for 3-4 ~10 inch pizzas
