Cooking Tip of the Week: If you have time, you can make whole wheat pizza dough from scratch, but it’s also typically available in the refrigerated section of your local grocery store. Look for it near the cheese.
Food for Thought: Ever wonder about whole wheat vs. white flour? Whole wheat flour uses all three parts of the wheat kernel, including the bran, endosperm and germ, while white flour is made mostly from the endosperm. But the most nutritious parts of a wheat kernel, including B vitamins, vitamin E, magnesium, iron and fiber live in the germ and bran, making whole wheat flour the healthier choice.
