Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
1½  Cup Whole Wheat Flour

1 Tsp Honey

Method:
Prep Work: Preheat
Oven at 425f (232C)
 
  1. Mix whole wheat flour
    with all-purpose flour and keep aside.
  2. In a large pot, combine
    yeast , honey, 4 tsp warm water and set aside for 10 min. (This step is very important as yeast forms
    quickly in warm sweet water)
  3. Add salt, oil, rest of
    warm water, 1 cup of flour and mix lightly. (Make
    sure to knead lightly as putting too much pressure will flatten/harden the
    pizza base when baked)
  4. Add rest of the flour
    and make into loose dough.
  5. Grease a pot, put the
    dough, cover with wet cloth & keep for 1hr.
  6. Dough double in size,
    turn on board, cut in 4 balls, put wet cloth and keep in warm place for 40 min.
  7. The dough balls will
    rise further,  roll each of them into
    round pizza base.
  8. Now apply olive oil on
    each pizza base followed by ketchup sauce.
  9. Place Tomato rings on
    each pizza base, sprinkle cheeses, basil leaves, garlic powder and salt.
  10. Place 2 pizza on each
    tray (Lined with aluminum foil).
  11. Put tray in bottom of
    the oven bake in 450degree for 5 min and then shift to middle rack for 5-6 min.
  12. Take out the pizza, run
    a pizza slicer to cut into desired slices and Serve Hot.
