Wholemeal Pizza

It has been a long while since I last made pizza for my kids. 

When hub told son about our dinner, he immediately reserved 4 slices.  A rather conservative number I should say.

This is the first time I am using wholemeal flour for pizza.  I think I need to come up with more wholemeal recipes soon if not, I will have to throw away my bag of wholemeal again. 


I am almost there making round pizza.  The texture for this dough is crispy.  The wholemeal gives it a nice bite.  Overall, a rather easy dough to manage.

This recipe belongs to the pile of cut and saved.  As I can't recall where I took this from, I can't give due credit.   Sorry.

Makes two 9" Pizzas

What you need:


190g plain flour
60 Bread flour
50 Wholemeal flour
6g Instant yeast
4g Sea salt
5g Fine sugar
180g Water
20g Olive oil


For topping: (whatever to your fancy)

Method:


Knead all the ingredients together in a mixer till a smooth and developed dough is formed.

Round the dough, cover and allow it to proof for about 1 hour before punching the dough down and stretching it to fit into a 9" pizza pan.

Spread pizza sauce and top with your favourite toppings.

Proof for another 15mins before baking in a preheated oven at 200C for about 15mins or until cooked.

  2. Edith, normally I used bread flour for pizza. Seeing u used whole meal flour and the crust is crispy will definitely give it a try. And is healthy too.

    1. I have no alternative as my kids only love salami. Sometime can be boring in a good way I meant.
