I sure have missed blogging this last week. The stomach bug that visited our house was a DOOZY!
Mr. Clean is the MASTER pizza maker. I’m not kidding. He has perfected the art of making pizza. I can honestly say it is better than any pizza at a restaurant!
Since we started eating clean, Mr. Clean has had to re-work his recipe a little. What follows is a tried and true GREAT pizza dough!
Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
1 1/2 cup warm (not hot) water
1 1/2 tsp yeast
2 Tbs raw honey
3 1/2 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1 cup oat flour
5-6 tsp vital wheat gluten
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
In a large mixing bowl, combine the water, yeast & honey. Let sit for 5 minutes.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, vital wheat gluten, and salt.
Pour flour mixture and olive oil into the large mixing bowl that has the yeast/water/honey mixture. Stir until the dough is not dry and not too sticky.
When the ingredients are well blended, knead dough on a lightly floured surface. You want to knead about 5 minutes. The dough should develop a good elasticity. (this means it will “bounce” back if you poke it!)
Put dough in a large bowl (that has been sprayed with olive oil) and let rise, covered, for 2 hours.
Now you are ready to make a killer pizza!
