I’ve been fiddling with pizza dough recipes for a long time.

Too long.

So when I blended a couple of recipes and we all liked it, I quickly scribbled down the recipe and printed it out. The mix of garlic, spices and the honey give this dough recipe just the right blend of sweet and spices for our family. :) I love the thickness of the crust and that one pizza is super-filling for all of us too. If you prefer a thinner crust pizza, you can use the dough to make two pizza crust instead of just one crust.

Ingredients:

~ 1 1/2 cups hot water

~ 1 Tbsp. yeast

~ 1/3 cup olive oil

~ 1/4 cup honey

~ 2 tsp. salt

~ 3 cups white bread flour

~ 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

~ 1 Tbsp. oregano

~ 1 Tbsp. basil

~ 3/4 Tbsp. garlic powder

 

Directions:

1. Activate your yeast in the water with a little honey added in {about 5 minutes til bubbly}.

2. Add in the remaining ingredients and begin to knead {I put it in our Bosch for about 5 minutes}. You can hand knead it for about five minutes or a little longer if you choose to use whole wheat flour in the recipe.

3. Let rest once kneading is done and rise for about 30 minutes, or until dough has doubled in size.

4. Roll dough out into pizza shape. This recipe will make one 16-18” thick crust pizza, or two thin crust pizzas.

5. Top with sauce and desired toppings ~ bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until pizza crust is browned and cheese is melted the way you like.

  5. My sister mixed some of this up for me one evening because we didn't have the ingredients at home.

    The pizza didn't end up soggy in the middle. I ended up cooking it on 425 as the hotter temperature seems to help.

    The pizza was very filling so we brought some back over for my sister to try out. The crust had a very unique taste and wasn't something I wanted to throw out after I finished with good part.
