100% Whole Wheat Pizza Crust Fast2eat

100% Whole Wheat Pizza Crust Fast2eat

There is nothing better than a homemade pizza. I love it, and I love how easy and versatile it is, especially using a Bread Maker to prepare the dough.

Pizza is from Italy, but it has become famous and popular in many areas of the world. Besides being famous, this is a dish that almost everyone likes.

Preparing a pizza can have different levels of difficulty and preparation time. Besides, of course, a wide variety of topping options. Mozzarella cheese is basic; in my opinion, all pizza should have it. For inspiration, take a look at these Pizza Toppings Fast2eat Suggestions.

Author: Susana Macedo

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup Water - 40-45º C/104-113ºF
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil - extra-virgem
  • 2 cups Whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp Vital wheat gluten
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 2 tsp Instant dry yeast

Instructions

  • Attach the kneading blade in the Bread Maker pan.
  • Place ingredients into the bread pan following the recipe order (or following the order and method specified in the manual of your Bread Maker – mine is: FIRST, liquid ingredients; SECOND, dry ingredients; LAST, yeast). Note: With a finger or a knife, make a small indentation in the middle of the flour. Add yeast to indentation, making sure it does not come into contact with the liquid ingredients.
  • Carefully insert bread pan into Bread Maker and gently close the lid.
  • Plug the power cord into a wall outlet. Select “Dough” and Press the Start button.
  • Open the lid and firmly grasp the bread pan handle and gently pull the pan straight up and out of the machine.
  • Transfer to a well-floured work surface. I use Parchment Paper.
  • At this point, you may form the pizza, or refrigerate the dough for several hours, well wrapped in plastic so it won't dry out.
    If you refrigerate for 18-24 hours, it will improve flavours.
  • Grease the pizza pan with olive oil or cooking spray. If using a peel and stone, dust the peel with cornmeal to prevent the pizza from sticking.
    I use parchment paper.
  • Roll it out on a lightly floured or cornmeal surface or hand stretch until a nice circle is formed. It may never be a perfect circle, but that is just part of homemade pizza. Dust the dough with flour or cornmeal only as needed to prevent sticking. Lay the dough on your prepared pan or peel. Pull the dough up around the edges of the pan so that a slight lip is formed, and crimp the edges.
  • Makes enough dough for a 14-inch pizza, or a 12-inch thick-crust pizza.
  • For a thin crispy crust, place your toppings on the pizza and bake immediately. For a thicker, chewier crust, allow the dough to rise for 15 to 30 minutes. The longer the rise, the thicker the dough.
  • Place your toppings on. You should place sauce first, followed by cheese, meat, vegetables and seasonings.
  • Spread pizza sauce (Tomato or Basil Pesto) over dough.
  • Sprinkle toppings over the sauce - at least 200g (0.5LB) of mozzarella cheese on each pizza. For inspiration, take a look at these Pizza Toppings Suggestions.
  • Place the pizza on the bottom rack of the oven or directly on the pizza stone and bake at 200-230ºC (400-450ºF) until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Notes

For inspiration, take a look at these Pizza Toppings Fast2eat Suggestions.

It’s always a good idea to open the bread machine’s lid during the second kneading cycle (after about 10 minutes) and check the consistency of the dough ball.
The dough is “just right” when it is a smooth round ball in appearance, soft to the touch, leaves a slight residue on your finger, and the bottom of the bread pan is clean of dough residue.
  • If it’s too dry, add lukewarm liquid a teaspoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If it looks too wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If there is flour on the sides of the pan, use a Silicone Spatula to wipe the flour from the pan.
Important: This can be done during the knead cycle only. DO NOT remove the pan. KEEP it locked in the machine. Do NOT turn off the bread maker to adjust dough.

However, the avoidance of gluten may result in reduced consumption of beneficial whole grains, which may affect cardiovascular risk. The promotion of gluten-free diets among people without celiac disease should not be encouraged.” (Source: http://www.bmj.com/content/357/bmj.j1892)
