Super healthy pizza dough

I had previously blogged about the World’s Easiest No-Rise Pizza Dough. Well, I made a few changes to make it healthier. The new and improved recipe is:

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet of yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 T honey
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1/3 cup flax seed
  • 1/4 cup steel-cut oats(plus 1/4 cup water)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a microwaveable bowl, combine 1/4 cup steel-cut oats and the 1/4 cup water and microwave on high for 2 minutes. This will soften up the oats but not fully cook them.

In a large bowl combine packet of yeast with 1 cup of warm water. Stir until the yeast dissolves. Add in all other ingredients, stir until combined. Let rest for 10 minutes.

Divide dough in half and make 2 large pizzas. This dough has a tendency to rise, so press your crusts out a little thinner than you want your end product. Top with your preferred toppings. Bake 20-25 minutes and eat a guilt-free pie.

–One of my favorite ways to top the pizza is use a little BBQ sauce as the sauce and add minced garlic, broccoli, tomato slices, mushrooms and spinach(or any other veggies you have on hand). No cheese. Bake and devour.
