HEART SHAPED PIZZA FOR VALENTINES Whole Wheat Pizza Dough Feel free to experiment by adding different flavors into the dough along with the flour (like dried basil or oregano, or even a little parmesan cheese). 1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C) 1 tsp. sugar 1 TBSP. active dry yeast 1 TBSP. olive oil 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. garlic powder 2 cups whole wheat flour 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided 1 TBSP honey In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water. Sprinkle the yeast over the top, and let stand for about 10 minutes, until foamy. Add in the olive oil, salt, and garlic powder, and stir to mix. Add the whole wheat flour plus one cup of the all-purpose flour, and stir until the dough begins to come together. Tip the dough out onto a surface floured with the remaining all-purpose flour, and knead until all of the flour has been absorbed, and the ball of dough becomes smooth, about 5 minutes. Add a bit more flour if the dough is too sticky. Place the dough in an oiled bowl, and turn to coat the surface. Cover loosely with a towel, and let stand in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour. When the dough is doubled, tip the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and divide into 2 pieces for 2 thin crust, or leave whole to make one thick crust. Form into a tight ball. Cover with a towel and let rise for about 45 minutes, until doubled. Stretch the dough out into the desired shape. Place each crust on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with a little bit of oil. Top with your desired sauce and toppings - not too much cheese : ) Bake at 425°F for 16-20 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbling.
