Here follows the recipe I used to make these wholewheat pizzas! I looked up several different recipes and ended up just mixing things a little randomly, and wanted fast results so didn’t let the dough rise for very long but it turned out pretty great!
- 1 packet of fresh yeast (42g)
- 2dl lukewarm water (mix cold & boiling, make sure temperature is adjusted to suit whatever yeast type you’re using)
- 3-4g salt (a bit more than half a teaspoon)
- 1 tsp sweetener e.g. sugar, agave, maple syrup
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 dl white flour + 3 dl wholewheat flour plus extra
- Crumble the fresh yeast into a large bowl.
- Add your water, oil, sweetener and salt. Mix.
- Add 2dl of white flour.
- Add in your wholewheat flour little by little. Eventually you’ll be able to plop out the sticky dough on a floured work bench surface. I probably ended up adding 4-5dl of flour in addition to the initial 2dl of white flour. But I didn’t measure too precisely – sorry 😬
- Knead and incorporate flour until the dough isn’t too sticky to handle. Grease the bowl, transfer the dough and cover with cling film. Let rise until doubled in size for about 1.5 hours.
- Turn on the oven to 250°C.
- Then portion out dough to make your pizza bases: I had enough for two medium sized pizzas which fed 3 people easily, probably could have been shared between 4!
- Make sure to leave an outer rim which will form the crust – don’t flatten or touch it excessively.
- Top with tomato sauce, vegan cheese and whatever else you would like!
- Chuck in the oven for 15 minutes, paying attention toward the end and prolonging in 3-5 minute increments depending on how well done you want your pizzas to be. If your oven does a hot blast use it to crispen up and char the pizza at the very end (there is a proper term for it which I can’t remember right now oops).
I minced 4 garlic cloves and chopped up one fresh tomato, and let it fry in a pot for a while until the tomato was mushy. Then added tomato passata, some agave syrup and a whole heap of spices… follow your heart! Tips: basil, smoked paprika, onion and garlic powder, turmeric, chilli…
I hope you enjoy this recipe and give it a go 😊
