Clean eating whole wheat pizza doughPosted: February 24, 2010
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!
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
turkey meats or no meat at all
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.
