Pizza... Friday?!? Is this the new normal???
Used the whole wheat dough from Animal Vegetable Miracle (pg 146), duplicated below:
2-3 tsp yeast (recipe calls for 3, I used around 2.25)
1.5 c warm water
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
2.5 c white flour
2 c whole wheat flour
Dissolve yeast into warm water and add oil and salt to that mixture. Mix the flours together and then knead them into liquid ingredients. Let rise 30-40 minutes.
The crust turned out really well. It was nice and light. I wasn't sure how much to knead, but after mixing together I kneaded for a couple minutes, then let rise.
This made two pizzas. Grill-pan cooked some zucchini. Sliced some cherry tomatoes into halves or so. Fried a bit of minced garlic in oil. Assembled. Got some pre-made sauce from whole foods that was pretty good. Used a bit of mozzarella on one, and some goat cheese on the other.
Pretty tasty. And not real hard. And I need a pizza paddle.
Pizza was sort of based on the pizza book, recipes 2 (pg 16) and 17 (pg 40).
