Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza
I LOVE pizza, seriously could be a food group for me. I wanted to try a homemade pizza crust recipe that I could use as a go to for easy and quick pizzas. I found this online and tweaked it a little bit! It’s easy and the hour you are waiting for the dough to rise, you can cut up your ingredients. I decided to go veggie this time! Here’s what you’ll need:
1 ½ cup whole wheat flour
½ packet of pizza yeast
½ teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt
3/4 cup of warm water
1 tablespoon olive oil
For the Pizza Toppings:
1 cup of your favorite tomato sauce
1 cup of diced up artichoke
1 cup of diced up kale
1 cut up pepper
6 stalks of asparagus cut up
1 cup of your favorite shredded cheese
For the dough, combine the flour, salt, and garlic salt in a large bowl. Then combine the yeast, water, and oil in a smaller bowl, mix a little. Let the yeast mixture sit for about 5 minutes.
Then pour into the flour and mix together. Place a kitchen towel over this and let it sit for about an hour.
While you are waiting, cut up the pepper, asparagus, artichoke and kale.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Once the dough is ready, split into two equal dough balls. Freeze one (or make 2 pizzas). With the dough ball you want to use, flour a clean surface and knead the dough. Then use your hands to create a round, flat, thin pizza shape.
Lightly spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray and place the dough on it.
First put down the sauce (as much as you like, you could also do pesto or white sauce instead of red sauce). I layered the kale on first because I thought it would be yummy this way.
Then I just put as much of the other veggies on pizza. Once done, cover it in shredded cheese.
Place in your oven for 10-15 minutes, keep an eye on it! When the cheese is melted, keep in for a few more minutes.
The pizza crush turned out crunch and yummy. And the veggies were delish on the pizza! I really enjoyed it and it tasted much more authentic than a frozen pizza…that’s for SURE. I will definitely be making this dough again!! And maybe will do a meat version next time I love versatile recipes!!
