There’s no denying that I love pizza. With cheese, sauce, toppings, and oozy goozy deliciousness, my mouth waters just thinking about it! The downside of this obsession is that sometimes I don’t want to indulge because of the calories. Due to that, I figured it was about time to post a healthier alternative to your regular pizza crust. This crust uses delicious whole wheat flour, a little bit of honey, and a pinch of garlic to pack in amazing taste. It’s chewy on the inside, crisp on the outside, and frankly I may like it more than normal crust!
It’s a bit sticky, so roll it out on a liberally floured board! Enjoy :)
**This recipe makes enough dough for 2 medium pizzas or one large pizza. Bag and freeze extra dough, then thaw completely before using.**
1 package of yeast
1 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon garlic (minced)
Mix together honey and warm water. Stir in yeast and allow it to sit for 10 minutes, until foamy.
In a large bowl, mix together the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, salt, minced garlic, and oil.
Add yeast mixture to the bowl and mix until combined. Turn onto a liberally floured surface and knead until smooth. Put the dough into an oiled bowl and turn to coat the surface. Cover and let it sit in a warm place until doubled in size, roughly 1 hour.
Cut dough in half and punch each portion down. Cover. Allow to rise for 45 minutes, or until double in size.
Roll out each crust and bake with whatever toppings you desire. Enjoy!
