Pizza On Homemade Honey Wheat Crust

Dinner Favorites

Pizza is such a yummy, fun food & has room for much variety.

Making your own pizza dough is super easy & it’s fun. The pizza dough needs to be started at least 2 hours before you are ready to assemble your pizza. I have any easy recipe below for that. I like to use various ingredients depending on what I am in the mood for. Some of my favorite pizza ingredients are, spinach, mushrooms, black olives, tomatoes, chicken, canadian bacon, onions,  pineapples & jalapeno peppers & feta cheese. I always line the dough with olive oil to keep the crust from getting soggy.

Sometimes, I will then add tomato sauce for my base. Other times, I will stick with olive oil, then add salt, pepper, garlic & thin layer of cheese. Then I add my vegetables & season them well with a layer of salt, pepper, garlic & herbs. Next, I add a generous layer of cheese. Finally, I top the pizza off with a light sprinkle of salt, garlic, pepper & herbs. This creates a very flavorful pizza bursting with flavor. Of Course, everyone has different tastes buds, so you would adjust accordingly.

Honey Wheat Crust

  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoon honey
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • Add other spices to taste – if desired

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  •  In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  •  In a large bowl, combine whole wheat flour and salt. Make a well in the middle and add honey and yeast mixture and olive oil.
  •  Slowly, add the all purpose flour as needed, just until the dough becomes easy to work with.
  • Knead the dough for about 2 minutes.
  • Let dough rise in a warm place for 1 or more hours.
  •  Roll dough on a floured pizza pan and poke a few holes in it with a fork.
  •  Bake in preheated oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until desired crispiness is achieved.

 *****When  preparing pizza, spread a thin layer of olive oil on  the unbaked crust before adding toppings. This protects the crust from absorbing moisture from the toppings & become soggy.
