Pizza Pizza

March 17, 2013

We LOVE pizza!! It’s not very often that we buy pizza, I usually make it at home. It is so easy and delicious. This is one of our favorite crust recipes. We like it because it is kinda healthy, well on the healthier side of unhealthy. I used to make it ‘Samba Brazil’ style. For all of you Frederictonians you will know exactly what I mean. For others, it is an amazing thin crust filled with cream cheese which is absolutely To. Die. For. Sounds a little freaky, but is totally amazing. We don’t normally make it like Samba Brazil anymore but whenever I make this recipe I think of the good ol’ days!

Originally from Eat, Shrink & Be Merry

1 c. all purpose flour

1/2c. whole wheat flour

2 tbsp. ground flaxseed

1 envelope quick-rising yeast

1/2 tsp. salt

2/3 c. very warm water

2 tsp. olive oil

2 tsp. honey

1 tbsp. cornmeal

1.    In a medium bowl, combine both flours, flax, yeast, and salt. Mix well.

2.    Measure warm water in a measuring cup, then stir in olive oil and honey. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and mix using a wooden spoon to form a ball. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 2 minutes. Wash out bowl, spray with olive oil and place dough inside. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place until double in size, about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, spray a 12″ pizza pan with olive oil and dust with cornmeal.

3.    When dough has risen, turn out onto lightly floured surface and, using a rolling pin, roll dough onto prepared pizza pan. Top with your favorite toppings and bake for 425F oven for about 15 minutes.
