Have you ever wanted to indulge your loved ones with a healthier version of their favourite greasy takeaway meal?
I sure have, and that’s why I was very excited when I made this whole wheat pizza dough that’s light and tasty, just like a “regular” pizza base.
I also got pretty tired of buying “healthy” pizza bases from my local health food shops that:
- were gluten-free but full of highly refined ingredients,
- used whole wheat flour but were tough and unappetising or
- contained milk or egg products
I’m sorry, but how hard is it really to make a whole wheat pizza base that’s both tasty and vegan?
Well, it’s a heck of a lot easier now, thanks to this awesome recipe for whole wheat pizza dough.
And although I make mine in my bread-making machine, you can follow any process for making homemade pizza dough, using the ingredients and amounts in this recipe.
I’m just taking the lazy way out, because frankly, I have better things to do than knead pizza dough, and I’m sure you do too.
I love that there’s no sugar needed in this whole wheat pizza dough recipe and that’s you don’t need to add any white flour at all, just some gluten flour to help with the elasticity.
I’ve also found that the brand of whole wheat flour you use can make a big difference, so be willing to do a bit of experimentation.
Surprisingly, the two best flours I’ve found for the job are a supermarket brand wholemeal flour, and an organic stoneground whole wheat flour.
But with the right ingredients, this whole wheat pizza dough turns out beautifully.
It’s soft and strong and delicious.
But, most importantly, it passes the taste test with my kids.
We’ve been making homemade vegan pizzas every week with this amazing whole wheat pizza dough, from the simplest margarita, to the fanciest gourmet pesto pizzas, to a deliciously decadent raw-ish dessert pizza.
Now all you have to do is decide what you’re going to top your next gourmet creation with.
And sit back and relax as you enjoy the sight of your family tucking into a totally healthy homemade pizza!
