It’s What I Ate Wednesday, and this week, I’m bringing you one heck of a pizza recipe that doesn’t require any patience.
That’s right, people — a no-rise pizza dough that’s delicious, wholesome, and ready in less than ten minutes. Are you in?
We’ll get there, I promise. But first, a big thank you to Jenn over at Peas & Crayons for hosting and a quick tour through my eats leading up to the miracle no-rise dough. (I’m really overselling it here, I know. But, it’s pretty darn awesome!)
My day started off with a big bowl of egg white oats (1/2 c. oatmeal, 1/2 medium banana, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 tbsp. ground flax, 1 egg white, + crunchy peanut butter). So delicious! I’m not sure why but I just recently discovered my L-O-V-E for crunch peanut butter. I may or may not have finished an entire jar in a week…
When snacktime rolled around, I was all ready for 1/2 of a leftover apple and the other 1/2 of my leftover banana from breakfast. Unfortunately, the banana was quite brown so I stuck with the apple…
When lunchtime rolled around, I had a small turkey burger with homemade chipotle dressing and spinach on a slice of whole wheat bread with carrots on the side. (It was no bacon stuffed cheeseburger, but it was still pretty good!)
For my afternoon snack, I stuck with my usual: 3 oz. apple cinnamon CHO + 3 oz. plain CHO with puffed wheat and oats.
And, then it was time…
Healthy No-Rise Pizza Dough
Makes one large pizza
- 2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast (or one package)
- 1 c. warm water
- 1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
- 1 c. all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 tsp. salt
- Preheat oven to 450 and spray a cooking stone with some cooking spray.
- Meanwhile, combine your cup of warm water and yeast, and allow it to sit for five minutes. (Yes, you have to be a little patient.)
- In a separate bowl, combine flours, olive oil, and salt and blend well. (I used the dough hook on my Kitchenaid.)
- Add water/yeast mixture to flour mixture, and mix until well-combined. Use your hands to knead and form a ball. Allow that ball to sit for five minutes.
- Next, lay out a thin layer of flour on your counter and roll out your dough. When it’s even, place it on a greased pizza stone.
- Cook for about ten minutes, remove, and add your toppings. Continue cooking for another 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted.
How to level up this recipe:
- For added flavor, add 1/2 Tbsp. oregano and basil to your dough.
- To keep this as light and healthy as possible, pile up your pizza with veggies! I used a little sauce and cheese and piled it high with spinach, broccoli, and red onion.
How to level up this recipe:
- You can easily use all white flour instead of wheat.
For my dinner, I enjoyed the above slice of pizza x2. I didn’t capture my nighttime snack, but I enjoyed one of my banana cinnamon mini-muffins!
