Whole Wheat Pizza

Instagram

Dough:

1 pocket of quick yeast

2 cups of whole wheat flour

water

2 tbsp of olive oil

pinch of salt

 

Sauce:

2 tbsp tomato paste

3 tbsp water

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp of oregano

1 tbsp of curry powder

 

Our favorite toppings:

1/3 of can of pineapple chunks

1 cup Mozzarella cheese

1 sliced tomato

1 sliced jallapeno

half a crushed garlic head

 

Dough

 

Warm 2 cups of water. Pour 1 cup into a mixing bowl and swish around to warm up the bowl. Pour 1 pocket of yeast and mix with fork let it sit for few mins in a warm area. Start pouring flour slowly mixing with one hand. Add water/flour as necessary to get the soft but firm ball of dough. 

 

Cover the bowl with towel and place in a warm place to rise. (I put mine in the sun outside) 

Sauce and toppings

 

While the dough rising prepare the sauce and toppings. For the sauce mix all ingredients in the bowl thoroughly. Add more water, if necessary. But be careful of adding too much water not to make the sauce runny. 

Putting it all together.

 

Preheat oven at 350F.

 

Cut dough in half and roll out, sprinkling additional flour to prevent sticking. I do not know how to artfully throw the dough up in the air as they do in the pizza parlors so I just roll it out on the wooden clean board (I have a specific bamboo dough board).  Place the dough crust on the pizza stone, pour sauce and spread it around, put cheese and other toppings.

 

As you can see, you do not need a lot of sauce. If you use too much, it will make the crust soggy. 

 

 

 
I prefer to sprinkle a bit of pineapple juice and olive oil on the top and also spread some olive oil on the parts of the edge not covered with sauce and toppings, it will give it a warm color when baked. 

Place into the oven, putting the stone directly on the rack. Bake for 20-25 minutes. After 20 minutes, I suggest to watch it and see if additional time is necessary. The dough should look baked and the cheese starting to bubble.

 

Remove from the stove, let is chill for few mins. Cut and enjoy while hot!!
