Healthy pizza/calzone crust
I have never used egg before in my crust, but this will definitely be in the future. We LOVED it! The whole wheat added a nice nutty taste without being overwhelming and made it much healthier. I changed the recipe to suit our tastes and the tenderness of the crust was perfect for the Garden Calzone.
How to Make Healthy pizza/calzone crust
- Add water, salt, sugar, yeast and 1 tbsp. of olive oil to a mixing bowl and let stand for 5 minutes. Add the whole wheat flour and 2 cups of the ap flour and mix until well blended.
- If you are using a stand mixer, add the one cup of flour and knead with a dough hook until the dough leaves the sides of the bowl. You may need to use the additional cup of flour depending on the humidity. The flour will stick be a bit sticky. At this point, add the additional 1 tbsp of olive oil and move the dough around until it is coated well. You can follow the same directions kneading it by hand.
- Let stand covered until it is doubled. Divide it in half and use one half for pizza or use it for a calzone. Use recipe directions for pizza or calzone to bake.
Hint: I oil the surface and place the dough on it to either roll or pat out and then put it on a pan to bake.
