At long last, whole wheat homemade pizza has become a mainstay in our home, thanks to a simple recipe for whole wheat pizza dough that I have been quickly whipping up in my food processor! And I couldn't be happier, because I have to admit, if there was one thing that I felt guilty about feeding my family (namely on Thursday nights when I was busy cooking for shabbat) it was storebought frozen pizza, which I knew just wasn't good for them at all, but which they were happy to eat.
But now, that they've tasted homemade pizza that is so much more filling on account of the whole wheat crust and real tomato sauce, well, hopefully there's no going back. Even my husband said the pizza was "Sof" which means "end" in Hebrew meaning at the end, or really top, of the rating scale. He just wished I had made a bit more!
1 cup warm water,
1 tablespoon date syrup
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
2¾ cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon sea salt
Preheat oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit with rack in the upper position. (I've been using a toaster oven for this, set on the highest temp. and it works just fine.)
