I am Breaking Up With Boboli

Tonight I made my first homemade whole wheat honey pizza crust. It’s about time!! Hubby and I are always looking for the perfect pizza crust to eat on our Friday Pizza Night. We have tried a lot too, TJ’s, Costco’s, and even Boboli’s.

I saw this recipe on Angela’s blogs, and I just knew I had to try it. A pizza crust that took only 20 minutes to make!!! She has never let me down before, so I took her advice and made it.

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough
(adapted from allrecipes.com)

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey ( I used Agave Nectar)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl combine flour, wheat germ and salt. Make a well in the middle and add honey and yeast mixture. Stir well to combine. Cover and set in a warm place to rise for a few minutes.
  4. Roll dough on a floured pizza pan and poke a few holes in it with a fork.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until desired crispiness is achieved.

As always we made a His and Her Pizza:) Hubby’s had some light TJ’s mixed cheese, and salami.

So glad I put the asparagus on their it was a nice crunch, and I think this is the “Greenest” my pizza has ever been. WE LOVED the crust too, we usually have thin crust and this was much thicker, but not bad. I loved the texture and taste much better then all the others we have ever tried. I think that next time I will roll out the dough a little thinner to see if I can make a thin crust pizza with it. Overall, it was cheap and will have to break up with all the others, sorry Boboli.
