- 1 1/2 cups whole grain flour
- 1/2 tsp honey
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 1/2 tsp olive oil
- 3/4 cup warm water
- 1 1/2 tsp yeast
What to do
Roll out the dough into desired shape. If you want you can trim off the edges so your pizza is a circle.
Pull out the rack that the pizza stone is on and place the dough on it. Allow to bake for about three minutes. I find that baking the crust makes it more able to withstand the weight of the pizza toppings.
Remove the pizza stone and place desired ingredients on top. I only had Green Mill pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and a tomato on hand.
Place the pizza stone in the oven once again, and let the pizza bake until desired degree of "doneness". With whole wheat crust this takes about 8 minutes.
My goal over the next couple of months is to find the perfect pizza dough. Ideally the dough would consist mainly of whole grain, but I don't think that I'll be happy unless I add some bread flour as well.
Interesting note- I used to work in a pizzeria! I had just been offered a job working at a local tv station, but being a stupid teenager I decided to work at a pizza place. I got to work with my best friend Dylan, and your usual bunch of sketchy pizza place employees.
