Last night, my mind went blank as to what my usual base recipe was, so I went in search of a wholemeal pizza crust recipe.
I found one from the Vegetarian/Vegan Society of Queensland website but it felt a little too worthy (and really - only 2 pizzas!).
I also went through a new favourite blog, Kalofagas - Greek Food & Beyond and found a pizza base recipe - but the timeline was WAAAY over what I had available to me!
What to do? What to do?
Mix them up and see what happens, of course.
So I present to you - Jeanie's Totally Accidental (and Actually Fantastic) Wholemealish Pizza Crust!
In a jug, pour 1 cup warm water (blood temperature - test as for a baby's bottle on the wrist), stir in 2 tablespoons honey until dissolved and pour 1 sachet dried yeast over the top. Stir slightly and leave in a warm spot for 10 minutes until foamy.
In a bowl,
Mix it all up and get a dough happening. If you need more liquid, add some water - mine was a little moist, so I added some more wholemeal to the bowl.
Once it had taken as much as it could, I emptied it onto the bench to knead it well. I put it into an oiled bowl in a warm spot for about 20 minutes, which was as much time as I could allow (ah, one of the few detractions to procrastination, hey?)
I then got to punch it down and split it in to 3 balls to roll out and top.
Once topped (and man, we put some scrummy toppings on) bake in a 200 ish oven for 20-25 minutes and eat until you explode - or preferably, one mouthful before.
Our toppings last night were -
- tomato paste, ham, salami, roast sweet potato, grated carrot, grated zucchini and grated mozzarella;
- tomato paste, ham, roast garlic, roast zucchini, fetta, roast sweet potato, capsicum, onion, olives, anchovies (only on my half) and grated mozzarella; and
- tomato paste, salami, olives, fetta and grated mozzarella.
Enjoy - we certainly did!!! (Oh, and sorry for no photos - we ate it all before documentation!)
