How to make the healthy pizza crust
The secret to a crust that is both flavorful and healthy is to find the balance between gluten, yeast, and fat. The key to a flavorful crust is not adding too much flour or sugar. For every cup of flour in your dough, start by adding one-fourth cup of water. Pour in 2 tablespoons of yeast and 4 teaspoons of salt into the mixture. Add 1/4 cups of olive oil for every 3 cups of flour used for kneading, then add another tablespoon or two if you want it to taste really good.

Tips for making a perfect pizza crust
You don’t have to be a pizza pro to make the healthiest pizza. You just need a few simple tips and tricks. Opt for whole wheat flour, add some extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), and use as many vegetables and herbs that you can find in your fridge or pantry.
The best part about making a healthy pizza is that you can use more vegetables and less cheese to make it taste just as great. For this recipe, try using fresh mozzarella and whole wheat dough, and then cover your pizza crust with all the veggies you want. If you want, you can even top it with broccoli.
