I wan to use whole wheat flour- how do I do this? Answered

I would like to make brick oven style pizza using whole wheat flour. How do I adjust the recipe to do this?

You can use half white flour and half whole wheat, or you can just substitute the whole wheat for white flour one-for-one. It shouldn't make any difference to the recipie itself - just to how "whole-wheaty" the pizza crust will come out.

Whole wheat flour has less gluten than bleached I think, and longer rising times.

Rising time also depends on a variety of factors like temperature, age and viogr of yeast, etc., so most recipes don't give a time, unless it's "overnight." They just say "until dough has doubled in volume" or something similar. Using white and wheat interchangeably has always worked for me; and for my mother, who is my go-to guru in these things.
