Whole grain plain pizza

Whole wheat healthier plain pizza from eatgood4life.com

I make pizza at least once a week and this is the first time I have made plain pizza. It will not be the last….. it is so good…….

I made sure the tomato sauce base is exceptional so the pizza tastes even better :-)

I normally mix organic marinara tomato sauce I get from Trader Joe’s and add some tomato paste to it so that the sauce is not too runny, I don’t like wet pizzas.

Anyhow, this one is a definite keeper that I will be making often. If you like pizza this one is a must try.

Enjoy!!



The rising of the dough takes about 1 hour and after rolling it out and placing in it the pizza stones another 30 minutes to rest.

It is pretty straight forward. The only thing you need is a little bit of time for the rising of the dough. I also use whole wheat pastry flour instead of just whole wheat flour and it always works really good.

I used two pizza stones I go from Pampered chef which work really good but you can use any other baking dish you have, that is what I used to do for my pizzas before I got these stones and the pizzas worked really good!!

Whole grain plain pizza

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 2 extra large pies

Cook Time: 2 hours

Ingredients:

Dough for two pies

4 tablespoons olive oil
2 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
1 tablespoon unrefined sugar
1 3/4 cups lukewarm water
1/2 teaspoon gluten, you can omit it if you don't have it
4 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 teaspoon celtic salt
2 teaspoons garlic powder
Dry spices such as oregano, basil and rosemary

Topping

1/2 cup tomato sauce, I normally do a mixture of tomato paste and marinara tomato sauce
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, more or less if you like, I normally do more
1 tablespoon oregano

Directions:

In a bowl mix the dough ingredients, and knead to make a smooth crust. It will take about 5 minutes. I do this process by hand (you can use your mixer, I just don't have one, never cared for one really, I do my mixes the old fashion way, with my hands!!)

If the dough is to wet, just add a bit more oat flour.

Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover it with plastic wrap, and let rise till very puffy, and doubled in size about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Half the dough and sprinkle some flour on your work surface where you will roll out the pizza. With a rolling pin roll out each piece to fit the pizza stone of choice or baking dish. Transfer the rolled dough onto the pizza stone and let the dough rest for 30 minutes or so.

Preheat oven to 425F. Place 1/4 cup of tomato sauce over each pie (more or less if you like) followed by the mozzarella. Sprinkle the oregano over the top and bake for 15-20 minutes.

  1. Oooh, this looks soooo good to me! I love the pineapple coconut combo and the nuts on top look so yummy. I love how simple the cake recipe is, not too many ingredients :)

  2. Como me gusta este bizcocho, lo voy a preparar pero sin el glaseado…Feliz año!!!!!!

  3. Oh my this looks delicious! Such a wonderful flavor combination!

  4. Why yes. Tofu in icing does sound disgusting. :)

    Other people do it so I guess it can’t be too bad! Frosting is my biggest challenge. It’s just fat and sugar and that’s difficult to make healthy. If you create an icing recipe with tofu, and doesn’t have other bizarre ingredients, I’ll try it out.

    Although I’m crazy about pineapple (I bought five of them on Friday!), I don’t like it baked. The cake looks super, though. :)

  5. I nominated YOU for the Leibster Blog Award! Check out the details on my blog :)

  6. Culinary coutore,

    thanks :-)

    Texanerin, yeah it sound really not that good using tofu right? will see how it goes…..

  7. This looks great. I’ll might substitute the coconut.

  8. Made this cake for a sweet end to a simple crock pot roast dinner. It is tasty, simple and comes out so nice. Next time I would use just 1/2 cup of coconut. It is so high in saturated fat. I once read that scientists feed rats large amounts of coconut to induce heart disease for lab studies.

  9. nice idea..thanks for sharing...

  10. There are great easy ways to use Casein protein powder to make icings! Also, using Splenda in this recipe would dramatically lower the sugar content ;) oat flour used half and half for the pastry flour would not alter the taste much either! Enjoy!

  11. I made this cake today for my Mom’s 98th birthday and my husband’s 61st. We combined the birthdays as they were a day apart. My husband said it was the best cake he had ever eaten in his life! Mom loved it too but she loves anything with cream cheese icing! The only thing I did different is that a used a bundt pan instead of a 9×13. It turned out beautiful. This recipe is definitely a keeper and I will be making it again. Thanks for the recipe!

  12. Looks good and am eager to try.
    How much liquid should I use from the can?
    I am planning not to use the liquid from the can as it may be sweet, so how much liquid to substitute?
    If I want to use stewed chopped pineapples, 
    Is there no butter or oil in this recipe? If I want to add oil, how much to add and if butter then how much.  Thanks so much.  I love your blog.
