So I've been trying to keep my red meat and white starch levels, butter other saturated fat and full fat dairy down to a minimum and follow a more heart healthy lifestyle. I came up with this really easy whole wheat pizza crust recipe. If you've never worked with whole wheat-white flour, it's great! Whole wheat white flour IS whole wheat flour. Same fiber as regular whole wheat flour but it has a lighter color and texture as it's made from a different type of wheat. It can often be used 1 for 1 in place of all purpose flour. I'm just loving it. So without further ado... my pizza recipe.
