Friday nights are pizza night, there would be a rebellion in my house if we had something different for dinner. I thought I'd share my favorite whole wheat crust.
Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
1 2/3 cups water
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tsp salt
4 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/4 tsp yeast
I use the dough cycle on the bread machine. When they cycle is complete I divide the dough into 2 pieces and place them in plastic bags and stick them in the fridge. They can keep a couple of days in the fridge. I take them out about 30 minutes before I'm ready to use them and let them sit on the counter so they get room temperature.
Each half of the dough will make a 16" pizza. I roll my dough and then place on a cornmeal sprinkled pizza peel to assemble. Once assembled, the key is to place them in the oven on a pizza stone that has been preheated to 450 degrees. Bake for 10 minutes.
I can't wait for the basil to grow in my garden, the kids love fresh basil on homemade pizza too. If I can remember I'll try to take a pic of one tonight when it's all baked and yummy!
