Whole Wheat Pizza Crust is bland

h_kay | Nov 10, 2013 03:19 PM

I use the following recipe (a lot of "whole wheat" recipes are a mixture of whole wheat flour and white flour which for me is not whole wheat)

1 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 packet active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon olive oil

I usually use king arthur white whole wheat flour. It makes a decent crust but I find that it is so bland even when coating the dough in spices like garlic powder. Any suggestions on how to boost flavor?
