Whole Wheat Pizza Recipe
Last night I made whole wheat pizza for family and friends.
I want to share my recipe for 2 large thick crust or 4 small thin crust pizzas:
4 large cups of whole wheat flour
2 tbsp of olive oil
2 cups of warm water
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp sugar / honey / agave nectar (vegan friendly)
1 tbsp active dry yeast
Mix all dry ingredients first and then add water and olive oil. Mix with hand until the dough starts to come together.
Spread some flour on wooden surface and start kneading the dough until all flour is absorbed and it becomes smooth. Then cover it and let it sit for 1 hour until it doubles in size.
After the waiting is over, cut the ball in to the pieces you want. (2 or 4)
Start pre-heating oven at high temperature.
Grab a ball of dough and start stretching it with a wooden pin until it goes no further.
Put the stretched out pizza on top of your fists and start spreading it more until the dough is elastic.
Then place over a well oiled pizza pan with your favorite sauce (check out pizza sauce in other entry).
Cook crust with sauce for 5 minutes then take out and place your favorite topping on it and back in the oven (check out healthy topping in other entry).
Wait till crispy (about another 7-10 minutes on high heat).
Personally I eat it without cheese, just the homemade sauce and grilled veggies of any sort. Give it a try!
