So this is my first ever attempt at pizza dough. Thought I’d make life easier for myself by doing a wholemeal one too. It came out looking a bit straggeldy but it tasted glorious! And the recipe made 2 pizzas so I have one for lunch tomorrow. I followed this recipe as best I could. 

Pre heat oven to 250 degrees C.

1) prepare toppings: chop a green pepper, chop a mushroom.

2) prepare tomato base: put a tin of tomatoes in a pan on the hob with a minced garlic glove and dried basil and oregano. Cook for 5-10 mins until reduced down. Set aside.

3) place 1 tbsp sugar, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 sachet of yeast and 1 cup of 5 min old boiled water and whisk. Leave for 5 mins and it’ll bubble.

4) in a separate bowl mix 2 3/4 cups of wholemeal flour, 1 tsp salt and a good grate of Parmesan.

5) flour a work surface near you.

6) add wet to dry ingredients and bring together with your hands. It’s quite sticky. When it forms a ball pop on the work surface and knead.

7) cut dough in 2 and roll as thin as you want them. Place on lined baking trays and assemble toppings on top.

8) oven for 10-15 mins on 250 degrees C. I turned mine down a bit as the ham started burning! 

Definitely going to practise this more.
