Whole Wheat Pizza

Pizza Dough (will make to large cookie sheet size pizza's)
  1. 2 1/2 C water
  2. 2 t honey
  3. 3t olive oil
  4. 4-6 C whole wheat flour (I like the white wheat flour best)
  5. 4T Vital Wheat Gluten
  6. 3T Yeast
  7. 2 t garlic powder
  8. 1 1/2T Italian seasoning
pre-heat oven at 450 degrees, Spray with cooking spray 2 large cookie sheet
  • mix water, oil, honey and yeast
  • add wheat gluten (important makes dough workable), garlic powder, Italian seasoning and flour (a little at a time till sides come clean)
Roll out dough put on pan and bake 5 mins, top with sauce, cheese, and toppings of your choice (some of our favorites are onions, broccoli, olive, artichoke hearts, pineapple, and spinach)

Pizza Sauce
(this is one you are just going to have to taste test, I never measure I just throw it together but will give rough estimates)

1/2 - 1 minced bell pepper (I throw it in the blender or food processor)
4 cups of spaghetti sauce
2T italian seasoning
2t garlic dried or 2T of mince garlic
1/4C dried onion or 1/2 minced onion
(you can add salt and pepper to taste)

Saute bell pepper and garlic & onions (if using fresh) in a pot on med till soft and translucent, add in rest of ingredients until hot (you will probably have more that enough sauce for 2 pizza's. I use the extra for dipping toasted bread, its one of the kids favorite snacks)
