How to make Whole Wheat Crust Pizza With Zucchini And Basil Sauce

  1. To begin making the Whole Wheat Crust Pizza with Zucchini and Basil, in a large mixing bowl, add in the flour, yeast, salt, sugar and knead well form a smooth dough, adding more warm water if required. Add the olive oil to make a soft and smooth dough.

  2. Knead well for about 5 minute doing a brisk push fold and turn motion, until perfectly smooth and elastic.

  3. Add only as much additional flour as necessary to keep dough from sticking to your hands and work surface.

  4. Use a pastry scraper while kneading to scrape dough off surface cleanly as you continue to knead in a sufficient amount of flour.

  5. Place dough into a bowl greased with olive oil. Cover bowl with a piece of oiled plastic wrap and then with a clean kitchen towel. Let rise in a warm, draft free spot until doubled, about 2 hours.

  6. Grill the Zucchini and onions using little oil in a skillet until lightly softened. Keep aside.

  7. Preheat oven to 250 C.

  8. Punch down dough with the back of your hand until it is deflated slightly. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured board and gently knead just to release air pockets.

  9. Typically the dough that is stretched out with the hand and fingers have a better texture than the dough that is rolled out with a rolling pin.

  10. Use your expertise and stretch the dough out evenly. You can also give a desired edge to the dough or just leave it plain and flat.

  11. Place the dough on a prepared pizza stone or a baking tray.

  12. Brush the interior of the circle (excluding the 1inch rim) with some olive oil and prick the oiled section of the dough deeply all over with a fork. Sprinkle oiled dough with freshly ground black pepper.

  13. Firstly layer the crust with the tomato basil sauce, place the grilled Zucchini, onions and finally the cheese.

  14. Bake the Zucchini & Basil Pizza in the hot oven until crust is deeply golden toppings are piping hot and cheese is bubbling, about 12 - 15 minutes and serve.

  15. Serve the Whole Wheat Crust Pizza With Zucchini And Basil Sauce as a weeknight dinner along with a bowl of Grilled Winter Vegetable Salad Recipe or Light and Healthy Spinach Soup Recipe.
