Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

We love pizza, and in effort to make it a bit healthier, I thought we’d give whole wheat pizza a try.  I love CPKs whole wheat crust, and while CPK reigns supreme, this whole wheat pizza dough from Cuisine Nie is tasty.  The kiddos and I both love it, although -s much prefers his white pizza dough.
Ingredients:

  • 1 envelope of yeast
  • 1 c. warm water
  • 2 3/4 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. sugar
  • 2 TBSP olive oil

Directions:

  1. Combine yeast and water in a bowl; set aside
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, salt, and sugar together; then add the olive oil, and then add the yeast mixture.
  3. Place your dough on a work surface and kneed for 6 to 7 minutes.
  4. Let dough rise in a warm place for a few hours.  After rising you can refrigerate to use dough at a later date.
  5. When you are ready roll out your dough and top with your desired toppings.  Set oven at highest temperature, and cook on a pizza stone until done.

Note: The Pizza above has a pesto base, topped with fresh mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, and fresh basil.  One of my other favorite pizzas is a ricotta pizza.  Simply brush crust with olive oil, then spread fresh ricotta fres mozzarella, cooked broccoli florets, and basil.
