100% Whole Wheat Bread and Pizza Crust

I’m makingĀ  some progress around here switching us from more processed ingredients to real foods. While I do bake all of our bread, I typically work with a mixture of all purpose, whole wheat and garbanzo flour. The past two weeks I have been working to make all my baked goods with 100% whole wheat. …
