I am such a sucker for whole grain bread dough recipes. I found this recipe for Whole Wheat Crackers and it caught my eye because it was essentially whole wheat pizza dough turned into crackers. When I make homemade pizza, sometimes, I don't want to make the 3 whole pizzas and I'm faced with an extra dough conundrum. Sometimes I bake the extra dough and freeze it and sometimes I turn it into calzone. This sounded like a great way to use up leftover pizza dough so I decided to give it a try. I made a roasted vegetable calzones with half of my dough and whole wheat crackers with the other half.

1 cup warm water
2 Tablespoons olive oil

Beat with a paddle attachment for 2 minutes.
Attach the dough hook to the mixer and add in whole wheat flour. Knead 5 minutes.
Place in a greased bowl, cover and let rest 10 minutes. (Mine rested for 30 minutes because I got busy.)
Roll dough onto counter - as thin as you can.
Cut dough into squares.
Place squares onto silpat lined baking sheets.
