    Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza


    It is AMAZING, for what it is anyway, and especially for how gosh darn healthy it is.

    Ingredients -
    3.5 cups stone ground whole wheat flour
    1.5 cups water
    1.5 oz. active dry yeast
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 pinch of salt
    15 oz. can of organic pizza sauce (go for whatever has the lowest amount of sugar/carbs, made w/ EVOO preferably)
    8 cups (2 bags) of shredded reduced fat mozzarella cheese
    1.5 cups shredded parmesan cheese
    2 lbs of ground turkey (99/1)
    1 tbsp crushed red pepper (if you want to spice up your pizza sauce)

    Preparation -
    Dough -
    1. In a small bowl, sprinkle the yeast on the warm water, and stir to dissolve it. Set aside until the yeast starts forming bubbles in about 5 minutes.
    2. Pour the flour into a large bowl or on a work surface. Mold the flour in a mound shape with a hole in the center.
    3. Pour the yeast mix in the center of the mound and add the 1 tbsp of olive oil, and a pinch of salt.
    4. Using a spatula draw the ingredients together.
    5. Then mix with your hands to form a dough.
    6. Sprinkle some flour on the work surface. Place the dough on the floured surface.
    7. Knead the dough briefly with your hands pushing and folding. Knead just long enough for the dough to take in a little more flour, and until it no longer sticking to your hands.
    8. With your hand, spread a little olive oil inside a bowl.
    9. Transfer the dough into the bowl.
    10. On the top of the dough, make two incisions that cross, and spread with a very small amount of olive oil. This last step will prevent the surface of the dough from breaking too much while rising.
    11. Cover the bowl with a kitchen cloth, and set the bowl aside for approximately 1 – 2 hours until the dough doubles in volume. The time required for rising will depend on the strength of the yeast and the temperature of the room.
    12. When the dough is double its original size, punch it down to eliminate the air bubbles.
    13. On a lightly floured work surface, cut the dough into three equal pieces.
    14. Using a rolling pin, or your hands, shape one piece of dough into a thin round layer. Make a pizza about 12 inches in diameter.
    15. Throw in the oven for 5 mins at 450 to help ensure the dough stays crispy.
    16. This will make 3 crusts, yielding 8 slices each.


    Sauce and Toppings -
    After crisping the crust in the oven...
    1. Add .5 cup of water to the sauce.
    2. Separate the sauce into 3 bowls of the same size.
    3. Empty the cheeses into one large bowl, mix them together, and then separate into 3 bowls of the same size.
    4. Cook the ground turkey in a pan, and separate into 3 bowls of the same size.
    5. Add the sauce to your crusts (1 bowl per crust).
    6. Add the turkey to your crusts (1 bowl per crust).
    7. Add the cheese mix to your crusts (1 bowl per crust).
    8. Bake at 450 for 25 mins in a regular oven.
    9. Cut each pizza into 8 equal slices.


    Calories and such -
    IMPORTANT: This only applies if you followed the instructions as far as amounts and separation go!!!
    • Calories per slice = 225
    • Fat per slice = 7 grams
    • Carbs per slice = 18 grams
    • Protein per slice = 20 grams

    If you'd like a thicker crust - you should put a little honey or sugar in your yeast / water mix...

    They actually sell fresh whole wheat pizza dough (it's in the frdge case) and organic pizza sauce at Trader Joe's if you have one near you guys.

    It's really good stuff.
