I crave pizza on a pretty regular basis. Even more so than my kids! In fact, my oldest child doesn't even really like pizza unless it is without sauce and loaded with cheese. So....I guess that means she likes cheese bread, not pizza. Anyway, I frequently make homemade pizza b/c I can accommodate everyone's preferences, while making it healthier than take-out/delivery or frozen varieties.
I use the dough setting on my bread machine, which makes it super convenient as well. However, a bread machine isn't necessary. There are even lots of "no-knead" recipes on the web.
This particular pizza dough is a new one for me, and I have to say, it is one of the best I've made! I will definitely be using this one again - and the best part...it has whole wheat and very little oil. Most whole wheat recipes I have tried have been dense and super....'wheaty'. Which according to spell check isn't a word, but we are totally making it a word.
This crust is soft and fluffy on the inside with a nice crisp (but not hard) outside. It has great flavor, and reminded me of Pizza Hut, minus the grease.
The recipe is from the Dr. Oz website. My dad loves Dr. Oz!
