Making your Pizza Crust.

I use a bread machine but you can also make them by hand.

If I am in a hurry I just have the bread machine mix the dough but do not allow it to rise more than 5 minutes.

I have experimented with a Pizza stone the last two times. It has worked very well.

Preheat Oven and Pizza stone to 500 degrees F for 30 minutes.

Mix your dough. When mixed roll or hand shape out flat the size of your pizza tray or stone. Use a little flour to stop sticking on the counter surface or board. I place a little cornmeal on the tray or pizza stone just before placing the dough on top.

Deep Dish Pizza Crust

In the order that your bread machine recommends, add the following:

1 cup luke warm water

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 tsp salt

3 cups Whole Wheat flour

1 TBSP of Vital Wheat Gluten (also known as Gluten Flour or bread improver)

1 1/2 tsp Raw Sugar

1 1/2 tsp of active yeast

Thin Crust Pizza Dough

2/3 cup warm water

1 TBSP Olive Oil

1/4 tsp salt

2 cups of Whole Wheat flour

1 TBSP Vital Wheat Gluten

1 tsp raw sugar

1 tsp active yeast

Toppings: I use two different types of bases for the pizza topping, either tomato paste or pesto sauce.

Roll or hand shape the dough to fit on the pizza tray or stone. Spray the top of the dough with a touch of olive oil (just a light mist). Spread the topping base evenly over the dough. If using tomato paste then spread evenly with pizza seasoning or a combination of italian herbs, dehydrated garlic and onion, and red chili flakes as desired.

After this top with a combination of the the following thinnly sliced: fresh or canned mushrooms, onions, spring onions, olives, artichokes, broccoli, peppers, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, pineapple

Baking: This can then be baked how it is or topped with soy or imitation cheese or a Tahinni Cheese (recipe to follow). bake until cooked about 7 -10 minutes if the oven if preheated to 500 degrees F.
