So you may think this is beyond you but really it’s not. Your own pizza. Amaze your friends. Amaze your small pets and animals. Amaze yourself as you triumphantly promote the gods of gluten to bow to your very whim. Let’s get started.
1 tsp white sugar
1 1/2 cups warm water about 45 C (110 F)
1 tsp dry yeast
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups all purpose four
What I used:
Tomato basil marinara sauce
In a big ass bowl, dissolve sugar in warm water. Sprinkle yeast over the top, and let the yeast orgy commence for about 10 minutes, until they’re all tuckered out and foamy.
Stir the olive oil and salt into the yeast mixture, then mix in the whole wheat flour and 1 cup of white flour into until the dough starts to gel like a really good conversation in a college bistro.
Toss that dough onto the counter but first make sure to put down some flour. Knead it like the antidote for all of the world’s problems are in there and (until all of the flour has been absorbed). Then form that puppy into a ball of awesome!
Throw it in an oiled bowl, preferably oiled by a circa 400 a.d. Egyptian oil merchant, and turn to coat the surface. Cover the bowl with a towel to prevent nasty stuff from getting in there. Let it sit an hour or so.
Once the dough has doubled in size, like a mountain becoming slowly erect, roll it out onto a floured counter again. Divide it in 2 for thin crust or use it all for thick crust (preferred by women around the globe!) Swish it into a ball again and let her rise again!
Once that has doubled again preheat the oven to 425. Squish the dough into the bottom of the pan and toss it in the oven for about 10 minutes.
Pull it out and add your toppings. (In my case: Marinara sauce, goat cheese, tomatoes, mozzarella, basil.
Bake it all for about 20 more minutes or until the cheese is golden brown and so be the crust!
