I LOVE homemade pizza, but some recipes can be a lengthy process. I found this recipe online and now use it as my “go to” if I forgot to take something out for dinner before going to work in the morning, or if I’m tired of eating pasta (poor newlyweds diet).
2 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 cup water, 2 tbsp canola oil (I use extra virgin olive oil) and a pinch of salt.
I also had some dried basil and oregano to give the dough some flavor too – add any herbs you like.
Instead of baking the dough – which you can do (400F for 15 minutes) – you can cook it in a skillet for a few minutes on each side until bubbles start to form, or if it is summer time cook on the grill.
Once the dough is ready add sauce and your favorite toppings. I fill mine with veggies and low fat shredded mexican cheese. Yum!
Ready for the oven!! Preheat the oven to 350F and cook until the cheese is melted and toppings are hot.
In minutes you are ready to eat!! Pair this with a nice side salad and your last minute dinner is ready to go! If you have extra dough keep it in the refrigerator or freezer for a quick easy meal.
My favorite tip to make this even EASIER is to use whole wheat wraps as the crust and top with your choice of toppings, or fold it in half with your choice of stuffings and make a quick calzone! I learned this from my friend Erin who is a registered dietitian.
