We cherish our Friday night, wearedoingnothingandgoingnowhere routine. Pizza kicks that off, possibly with a movie. life is good on Fridays, :)
We used to order in but as everyone is well aware, that can add up! Plus, I was never totally thrilled with the choices out there. Not to mention, everyone in my home likes different toppings, so after realizing the only way I can please everyone is to make my own, I did what anyone would do... turned to my Mommy for help! She gave me this recipe for pizza dough that was given to her by her Sicilian Mother in Law. I tweaked it to use whole wheat instead of white flour, so now, on Friday nights, everyone gets exactly what they like! Gotta love a win-win. ;)
This recipe will make 3 large 14" pizzas, however, I use 1/3 of this recipe to make individual pizzas to my daughters to bring to school on "pizza day". This dough freezes beautifully, I might add!
To make Whole Wheat pizza dough, you will need:
- 6 cups whole wheat bread flour, spoon and sweep method
- 3 tsp active dry yeast
- 3 tsp honey
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp vital wheat gluten
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 cups warm water (110 degrees)
In your mixer bowl, add flour ,yeast, wheat gluten, honey salt and oil.
I hope you love this as much as we do!!!
