Have you explored the option of a healthy five grain pizza base? here is how you can make this nutritious alternative right in your own kitchen.
- Combine the dry yeast with 2 tbsp of lukewarm water and cover and keep aside for 5 minutes. Keep aside.
- Combine all the ingredients except the olive oil in a bowl and knead into a soft dough using enough water until it is smooth and elastic.
- Add the olive oil and knead again.
- Cover the dough with a wet muslin cloth and allow it to prove till it doubles in volume (approx 15 to 20 minutes).
- Press the dough lightly to remove the air.
- Divide the dough into 2 equal parts.
- Roll a portion of the dough into a circle of 250 mm. (10") diameter and 6 mm. (1/4") thickness. Prick the dough with a fork and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°c (400°f) for 10 minutes.
