Clean eating whole wheat pizza dough

Found on Clean Eating, this dough was excellent and had great flavor. Topped with lighter toppings and meatless for Lent made for a perfectly clean  dinner. This dough is easy enough to make on a busy weeknight too!

I used Muir Glen organic sauce, garlic on top of sauce, sliced fresh mozz, sliced tomatoes and chopped fresh basil. EXCELLENT!

ENJOY!

Ingredients:
1 package active dry yeast (.25 ounce)
1 c. warm water
2 c. whole wheat flour
1/4 c. wheat germ
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. honey

Clean eating suggested toppings:
Any veggie or fruit
Organic tomato sauce, try Muir Glen or make your own
fresh mozzarella
basil
turkey meats or no meat at all

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place warm water in small bowl.  Add yeast.  Allow the yeast to dissolve and set aside until mixture becomes creamy (appx. 10 minutes).
In a large mixing bowl, combine wheat flour, wheat germ, and salt.  Scoop a well in the middle of the mixture and add the honey and yeast mixture.  Stir until ingredients are well combined.  Cover mixture with a dishtowel or plastic wrap and sit in a warm place and allow to raise for approximately 5 minutes.  Drizzle with desired oils if you prefer.
Roll dough on a floured pizza pan.  Using a fork, poke a few holes in the dough.
Bake for 5 to 10 minutes or until desired crispness. Top with toppings and finish baking.

  3. Glad I found you! This was a very simple recipe. I used the amount of salt it called for and it was a bit salty for me, but great overall!
