Pizza

Here is the recipe for whole wheat pizza dough:

Ingredients:
3/4 C + 1tsp water
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 1/4 C whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2tsp active dry yeast (or 1 1/2 tsp fast rise yeast)
toppings

Directions (as remembered by me :-):
Put the water and oil into the bread pan. Put the flour sugar and salt into the bread pan, and tap the pan down so that the flour mixture covers the water. Push the flour to the edges in the corners and sprinkle the yeast over top. Put the bread pan in the bread machine and set on the dough cycle.

When the dough cycle is finished (1.5 hours on my machine) knead the dough for 1 minute, then let it rest for 15 minutes. Roll it out to 12-14 inches and put into a pizza pan that is oiled and sprinkled with cormeal. Let the dough rise for 20-25 minutes. Top with your favorite toppings and bake at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

The toppings I made last night were:
Pizza one:
- dough brushed with olive oil
- sprinkled with a tiny bit of mozzarella
- topped with apples, caramalized onions, blue capri blue goat cheese
- sprinkled with a tiny bit more mozza

Pizza two:
- pesto on the dough
- topped with cappocoli, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and mozzarella

MMMMmmmmmmm.....I love the home made pizza :-)
