Since I totally forgot about my Tasty Tuesday post yesterday, I'm including my recipe for a whole wheat pizza crust that just so happens to be what is for supper tonight. I was so busy yesterday trying to finish up decking the halls that I forgot about my weekly foodie post but this recipe will make up for it, making pizza a bit healthier for you, just a bit but hey, this girl can't give up homemade pizza.
Whole Wheat Pizza Crust
1 pkg. active dry yeast
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/4 c. warm water
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. salt (I use sea salt, better for you)
In a small bowl, combine yeast, sugar and water, let sit for 5 mins. In a large bowl combine flours and salt. Slowly add yeast mixture and blend well, till it forms a ball. On a lightly floured surface, turn dough out and knead for 5 min. Place in lightly greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or till doubled in size. Preheat oven to 400.
Roll dough out to form your crust, if you are using a pizza stone, sprinkle with a bit of cornmeal before you place the crust on it. Prick dough with fork. Top with sauce and trimmings. Bake for 20 min. or till lightly browned.
