Printable Recipe

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp flaxseed meal
2 1/4 tsp of quick-rising yeast
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup warm water
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp honey

Combine flours, flax, yeast and salt in a bowl. In a measuring cup, combine water, olive oil and honey. Add to dry ingredients and stir until soft dough forms. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface for 2 minutes. Place in a greased bowl and cover with a dishcloth. Place in the oven with just the light on for 20 minutes until the dough doubles in size. While you’re waiting, prepare your pizza toppings. When dough is ready, roll it out on a floured surface, then place on a greased pizza pan. Top with your pizza toppings and bake at 425F for about 15 minutes.

I had a lot of ham left over from Easter, so that meant ham and pineapple pizza time! I love using this pizza dough because it’s so simple and fast. All I had was bread-machine yeast, so it probably didn’t rise quite as much as it should have, but it still turned out well. At least I thought so anyway. What did the kids think of it? Well, here’s Cole’s plate after dinner:

….I think that pretty much sums it up.

But don’t let my picky 3-year-old stop you from trying this dough, it really was quite good. Really!
