Simple Whole Wheat Pizza
Everybody loves a great pizza. Making them at home can save you a ton of money. I fill my freezer with mozzarella when stores advertise it at a lost leader price – here it’s usually $4 for a half pound bar. There’s always lots of pepperoni – home cured from the offcuts I accumulate from doing butcher work. There’s even plenty of tomato sauce if fresh tomatoes aren’t available and our homemade sauce has run out.
While you can use a much simpler recipe for pizza dough especially if you are using high gluten durum flour, when I use full extraction whole wheat I often tend to default to my tried and true baler twine whole wheat bread dough – which allows me to make a full batch and split it for buns, cinnamon rolls or something similar for the next day if I only want a single pizza.
This dough gives a nice chewy crust. Load it up with toppings and you’ll get the pizza you want at a fraction of the price of delivery or even store bought frozen product.
