Ingredients :

 

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup to 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon dried Italian seasoning (mixed herbs)
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • For topping
  • Crushed tomato puree or pizza sauce
  • Any vegetables of your choice ( I have used onions slices,red peppers,green peppers,tomato slices,green onions)
  • Blend of low moisture mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese
  • For seasoning
  • Garlic powder
  • Smoked sea salt
  • Torn fresh basil leaves (I used mint leaves)

Method : Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F / 230 degree Celsius.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add water, yeast and honey.
  3. Water should be lukewarm .
  4. Mix it together with a whisk. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  5. Mixture will turn foamy.
  6. After 10 minutes, add flour , mixed herbs and salt into the yeast mixture.
  7. Stir with spatula until the dough comes together then knead the dough with hands to a silky soft dough.
  8. If the dough is very sticky, adjust flour by adding 1 or 2 tablespoon of flour or if dough is too stiff then add more warm water to knead the dough.
  9. Now clean your work surface, flour it and dump the dough onto floured work surface.
  10. Knead dough by slapping and stretching until it turns into soft and elastic.
  11. Divide the dough into two halves.
  12. Transfer doughs to a oil greased bowl and cover with a damp cloth and keep aside for at least 10 minutes but 1 hour is recommended if you have spare time.
  13. Meanwhile get the toppings ready.
  14. For tomato sauce I have used fresh tomatoes. Puree them.
  15. You may also use pizza sauce or tomato sauce instead.
  16. Now lets shape the base.
  17. Throw some flour on working space and roll the dough out as thin as possible with a rolling pin. You could roll it into round shape or elongated as I have done. Dough keeps springing back, keep it rolling.
  18. You can also roll it on parchment paper as I did in 'makki di roti recipe'.
  19. It makes rolling the dough easy.
  20. When you roll it, dough will stick to parchment paper but don't worry as you’ll bake the pizza right on the parchment paper.
  21. As it cooks, the dough will release from the parchment or you can peel it.
  22. Transfer dough to a non stick baking pan (If non-stick baking pan is not available , lightly grease it with cooking spray).
  23. Brush the outer 1- inch of the dough with a light coating of olive oil or butter.
  24. Add tomatoes puree or pizza sauce of your choice into the center of each pizza.
  25. Bake for 4 minutes, then sprinkle cheese and vegetables on the top. Garnish with some seasoning of your choice.
  26. Bake the pizza for another 9-10 minutes on the top rack until the crust is lightly golden.
  27. Just keep and eye on it since the settings & timings in different ovens can differ.
  28. Toppings will be cooked by then.
  29. Remove the pizza and let the pizza cool for a few minutes before slicing.
  30. Enjoy delicious thin Crust pizza with so much goodness.
