This is a healthier alternative to the basic pizza base as it packs in the goodness of whole wheat flour. Whole wheat flour is used for the dough with either fresh or dried yeast, whichever is more convenient. But when using dried yeast, use 1/2 the quantity of fresh yeast dissolved in warm water. Be sure to knead the dough very thoroughly until the dough is springy, smooth and elastic. Pizzas do not necessarily have to be round. Some are large ovals, some are square and others known as pizzettes are baked as smaller individual circles. So you can shape the pizza base the way you like!

Ingredients

Method
  1. Put the whole wheat flour into a deep bowl, make a small well in the centre and add the yeast along with 1 tbsp of water.
  2. Cover the yeast with a small inverted bowl and keep aside for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove the bowl and add all the remaining ingredients and knead into a soft dough using enough water.
  4. Cover the dough with a wet muslin cloth and allow it to prove till it doubles in volume (approx. 15 to 20 minutes).
  5. Press the dough lightly to remove the air. Divide the dough into 2 equal parts.
  6. Roll each portion into a circle of 250 mm. (10") diameter and 6 mm. (1/4") thickness.
  7. Prick each circle 4 to 5 times with a fork. Bake at 150ºc for about 5 to 7 minutes.

Tips
  1. Fresh yeast can be easily purchased from your local bakery in small quantities.
  2. This pizza base can be topped with your favourite toppings.
