pizza. i loooove it. but every time i think of making pizza for dinner, it is the last minute. this is the recipe i turn to for a quick, healthy crust. i call it lazy because it doesn't need to rise and it mixes up easily in a machine. a bosch or strong mixer is requisite here, sorry folks, unless you're kneading by hand, which would make this very hard work and definitely not lazy. mix, top and bake. no rising. no waiting. this is my favorite easy wheat pizza dough. this recipe makes enough for three large pizzas, or two pizzas and a batch of breadsticks. you can double this recipe, but i would only trust a bosch with that much dough.
lazy whole wheat pizza dough
recipe from the bosch store
3 cups warm water
2 Tablespoons sugar or honey
7-8 cups whole wheat flour
1 Tablespoon yeast
1 Tablespoon salt
combine water, sugar and 3 cups flour in mixing bowl. mix to a paste. add in yeast and salt. add flour, one cup at a time, until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl. knead 10 minutes. (if you have dough enhancer, knead 8 minutes, add 1 Tablespoon enhancer, knead 2 minutes more.
preheat oven to 500 degrees.
oil or flour a big flat surface. divide dough into thirds. roll out 16-inch-ish rounds, top with sauce, toppings and cheese. bake at 500 degrees for 7 minutes.
*i have tried adding other seasonings to the dough but i always prefer it simply, like this, with a kicked up sauce. since i loooove pizza so much, i make it often. i have so many other pizza tips, i am going to make a dedicated post. look forward to more pizza!
