I've used 1 cup wheat germ + 1 cup whole wheat flour + 2 cups (remainder) all purpose unbleached flour with great results. Added to 1.5 cups water, yeast, salt, olive oil. Thin crust, great results.

I'm finding 33% whole wheat seems to be a good place where it's actually blends in pretty well.  And of course 33% healthier :)

I lurk here mainly, but I'm having continued success with a 100% white wheat flour pizza (using King Arthur).  Depending on my ratios and flour amount, the basic recipe can be altered for a ny style crust to a fluffy and sweeter American/Californian crust.  I'm hovering right now at about 70% hydration.  Taste wise, I like it better than traditional whole wheat or plain white or hi-gluten.  Just use a stone for the right texture (or unglazed quarry tiles in my case)!
