Homemade Pizza


 Homemade Pizza 

The next time you are in the mood for pizza, instead of ordering out, how about making your own! I want to share a recipe I use that is easy to make, and very good for you to boot.

My Homemade Pizza Crust

Mix together:

2 cups whole-wheat flour (I use organic sprouted whole wheat)
1 cup unbleached flour
1 cup rolled oats (I use organic)
2 tablespoons dried milk (I use regular, raw milk)
2 teaspoons salt (I use Himalayan pink salt)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 Tablespoons oil (I use olive oil)
Herb seasonings of your choice, 1 teaspoon each. I like to use dill, oregano, thyme, minced onion, and minced garlic.
I also add 1 Tablespoon of Organic chia seeds. 

In another bowl, stir 1 1/2 cups luke warm water, 3 Tablespoons sugar, (I use sucanat), and 1 Tablespoon yeast together.

Let this mixture set for a few minutes till a foam forms on top.

Mix the yeast and water into other ingredients until all is moist.

Now throw the spoon to the side and dig in with your hands. knead the dough till it becomes an elastic consistency, about 5 to 10 minutes usually. When you've reached this stage, pat into a nice round and cover with a light coating of oil. I let it in the bowl I've mixed it in, and cover with a damp cloth. Put it in a warm place to rise. In the oven with JUST the light on will work fine if you have no other place.
