    a few of the jr-72s made homemade whole wheat (sugar-free) pizza for dinner tonight. it came out very tasty, however the dough rose a bit too much. who has a good recipe that they can share with the CR that will provide a thin crispy crust?

    consider yourself lucky, I’m about falling on my face now, (I walked all over town the past few days) and I just went to dig this up from the recesses of the kapusta kitchen (no easy feat!)

    DOUGH: (not to be confused with the lottery thread 😉 )

    1 pkg. active dry yeast

    1 tsp. sugar

    2 T. vegetable oil (if you’re into olive oil, a good one would add flavor*)

    1 C. warm water

    1 tsp. salt

    2.5 C. all-purpose OR whole wheat flour (a mix would also work)

    Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in remaining ingredients. Beat vigorously (20 strokes). Let rest 5 minutes. Makes 2 11″ round pizzas. (approximately, I made this a long, long time ago.)

    TIPS: I find for pizza, muenster/pizza cheese works better than mozzarella or american.

    add parsley for color and mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, olives, peppers for a variation and get creative, almost all veggies work on pizza!

    *a good olive oil would be complemented by chopped garlic/onion and some (dried) herbs in the sauce.

    let me know how it comes out!

    ENJOY!

    thank you. I will try this one next time. btw for oil, we usually use grape seed oil.

    In case your interested, I have another recipe for pizza dough that comes out great too. Or else, you can buy pizza pie dough in many pizza stores.

    please post it. YW Moderator-72

    does anybody add milk to the dough? I heard from a pizza man years ago that adding milk makes the dough taste better.

    #647123

    2 cups flour

    1 pkg. Rapid Rise yeast

    3/4 tsp salt

    Combine these ingredients.

    Add:

    3/4 c boiling hot water

    2 spoons olive oil ( I don’t measure exactly)

    Mix with spoon until dough turns away from side of bowl.

    Knead with hands until becomes dough.(Be careful it will be hot due to the hot water.)

    Cover tightly with plastic tablecloth and let rise for 15 minutes.

    This makes about 5-6 mini pizzas. I usually count 2 pizzas per person, so double, triple, quadruple the dough…accordingly.

    You can usually substitute the water for milk. Go ask your wife.

    maybe this should be a different thread – but does anybody have a ‘good – tried – true’ recipe for whole wheat challah – using only whole wheat flour and no sugar?

    grapeseed oil is high in antioxidants

    but

    it is a polyunsaturated oil which are known to increase the risk of heart disease.

    canola oil and olive oil are monounsaturated oils which are thought to be much safer for the heart

    i would speak to mrs moderator

    Make sure to grate the cheese yourself. Its much better (& cheaper) than the store bought stuff.

    I also prefer Muenster chesse then Mozzerella cheese as well. It is the cheese of choice in all my dairy receipes. Definetely grate yourself or use a food processer. It is much cheaper then the already shredded packages. I sometimes buy a big block of chesse, shredd it, and place in small ziploc bags, and freeze. Hope this tip helps.

    72, this would interest you. In baking, its possible to use white whole wheat flour, but that tends to leave an aftertaste unless its only half the amount of flour. Arrowhead Mills sells a product called organic pastry flour, its whole wheat and a much finer grain, and it comes out wonderful in baking. (cant really tell any difference unless you’re REALLY looking for it.)

    very classic baking tip: cut down on the caloric content in your home baked products by using a fruit puree (like applesauce) instead of oil/butter. there is NO way to tell the difference.

    Now here’s a real yummy recipe for PIZZA KNISH:

    Pizza Knish Dough

    a. 3 cups flour

    c. 1 tsp salt

    d. 1 cup seltzer or water

    Combine first three ingredients until crumbly. Add in salt or water until dough forms into a ball. Put into the fridge for an hour. Roll out into a rectangle and fill across the middle with pizza sauce and cheese. Wrap up dough. You may add cheese on top. Bake at 350 until golden brown.

    mix the ingredients together (by hand). knead the dough thoroughly. note: if the dough is sticky drizzle additional oil around the mixture (as needed). keep kneading until it is no longer sticky.

    Place the bowl with the mixture in a large plastic garbage bag and let rise for 2 hours.

    after separating the challah and making the brocha

    take sections of the dough and braid it. place the braided dough into oiled tins.

    Mozzarella is a better cheese than Munster. It’s similar, but has less fat in it. It tastes better too, in my opinion.

    Jewess, thats funny, I find it to be much greasier than muenster, and less salty.

    This is adapted from a recipe on allrecipes.com for dessert pie crust. I have found that it works well for pizza too in this modified version; however, better double the recipe if you’re cooking for a large family.

    3 cups whole-wheat flour

    1 teaspoon salt

    3 teaspoons baking powder

    6 tablespoons cold water

    1 tablespoon sugar

    3/4 cup softened butter

    1/4 cup soymilk (you can use milk but I personally prefer soymilk)

    Mix flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar in a large bowl. Transfer 1/2 cup of this flour mixture to a smaller bowl, and gradually mix in the water. Cut the butter into the rest of the flour mixture until it achieves a coarse, meal-like consistency. Stir in soymilk, then transfer the flour/water mixture back to the bowl and knead together until it forms a dough. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before starting to work with it.

    there’s been another delay. Mrs. 72 told me that I can’t try any of the new recipes before I finish what we made previously and is still in the freezer.

    I tried to moderate her comment using both the ***EDIT*** and ***DELETE*** functions but… neither worked. 😮 (what a shock that was)

    maybe… I will be able to try one of the recipes this week or maybe for Shavous,
