A Craveable Crust

Needing a break from cauliflower pizza crust or Fathead pizza dough? The crust on a pizza makes or break it! After trying many different crusts which were ok, I was craving something closer to the white flour crust we all grew up on. Naturally, I tried sprouted whole wheat flour to make a super-healthy alternative to the “unhealthy” white crust. I made a pizza for our weekly “Pizza Night” and I was greatly surprised and tickled! The sprouted crust was so good and tasty!

Healthy Sprouted Whole Wheat Pizza Crust – by Marcy

For this recipe I added Bob’s Red Mill Vital Wheat Gluten, to give it some extra height. It is totally optional, as I have made it without the gluten as well. It is a little bit more of a dense crust, but not a whole lot of difference.

Reasons to Try Healthy Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour Pizza Crust

  • A healthier choice
  • Not a soggy-type pizza crust
  • Tastes similar to “regular” white flour crusts
  • Cheaper than buying Sprouted Crusts from the grocery store
  • Most kids will love it!
  • It tastes delicious!
  • Guilt-Free!

I buy Organic Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour in bulk from a local grocery store. If you check around your area, you too may be surprised to find the flour near you as well! I found it for about $2/pound, which is a great deal!

Online brands are readily available: One-Degree Organic Whole Wheat Sprouted Flour and King Arthur 100% Whole Grain Sprouted Wheat Flour, are a few choices. Make sure the flour is 100% spouted whole wheat!

Equipment

  • Measureing bowl
  • Spoon
  • Pizza Cutter
  • Bowl with Lid
  • 15 inch Pizza Pan

Ingredients
  

  • 1 tbsp Yeast
  • 1 cup Warm Water
  • 1 tsp Sugar *to feed the yeast
  • 2 tbsp Vital Wheat Gluten *optional
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 1/2 Cups Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In large bowl, measure out yeast and add warm water. Stir and let sit for a few minutes or until bubbly. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir. Add 1tablespoon of additional flour, until dough comes away from the sides of bowl. Pour a teaspoon of olive oil on clean surface. Spread out oil and place dough on surface. Kneed for 5 minutes. Cover and let the dough sit in a oiled bowl for 20-30 minutes. Dough should grow to almost twice the size. If not using gluten, it may not rise as much.
    Roll dough out on a 15 inch round pizza pan. Poke holes in top with a fork. This allows the air bubble to escape. Put pan in oven for 5 minutes. Take out pan and top with Sugar-Free Pizza Sauce, my favorite is Great Value Pizza Sauce. Add favorite meats and vegtables. Top with mozzerella cheese. I like to add a little cheddar cheese as well. Bake in oven for 6 minutes or until bubbly.
