Homemade Pizza Night! (They’ll Love You for it…)
300 ml (1 1/4 cups) all purpose flour
300 ml (1 1/4 cups) whole wheat flour
1 packet (8g or 1/4 oz) quickrise instant yeast
5 ml (1 tsp) granulated sugar
2 ml (1/2 tsp) salt
125 ml (1/2 cup) water
50 ml (1/4 cup) 2% milk
45 ml (3 tbsp) olive oil
Preheat oven to 220˚C (425˚F). Lightly grease a pizza pan or baking sheet.
In a bowl, combine flours, yeast, sugar and salt.
In a small saucepan over low heat, heat water, milk and olive oil until hot to the touch (approximately 50˚C or 125˚F). Stir into dry ingredients. Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
Cut dough in half; roll each half into a 30 cm (12-inch) round. Place on
non-stick or lightly greased baking sheets or pizza pans. Flute edges to form shells to hold fillings. Cover; let rise in warm place for about 30 minutes.
Add the toppings of your choice. Hawaiian is a healthier choice that kids often enjoy.
Bake in a preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until done.
Get creative with your toppings. For example, use pesto as your pizza sauce and top with leftover grilled chicken, roasted vegetables and feta cheese — delicious!
