Hello readers and fans of Anyonita's Nibbles. This is Lori from Lori's Culinary Creations and I have the honor of guest posting here today! So good to meet everyone. My blog is about all my adventures in the kitchen where I share my recipes, favorite foods and also do some product reviews that I feel will be beneficial to my readers. I just love Anyonita's blog and have had the honor of co-hosting her weekly Tasty Tuesday's party this month. She is a gem but I'm sure I don't need to tell you that.

 About a year ago I received a WonderMill flour mill for a product review. I had never milled my own flour before, but got used to it very quickly. It's nice to purchase whole grain then make flour as needed instead of having a bunch of processed white flour sitting in my pantry. The best part is when you mill your own flour, you are getting the most nutrients since flour loses it's nutrients the longer it sits on a shelf. I milled 1 3/4 cups of whole wheat grain to make enough flour for this recipe then some extra for dusting the pizza stone.

With the flour mill, it was time to make a whole wheat from scratch pizza crust. There is a small pizza and sandwich place here in West Jordan, UT that I enjoy purchasing pizza from since they make a whole wheat crust. But it was time to make my own so out came the WonderMill and a crust was born!

Homemade Wholewheat Pizza Crust Recipe
 
1. Combine flour, salt and yeast in a large bowl. Add water, honey, oil, Italian seasoning and garlic powder, mixing with a spoon to form into a ball.

2. Continue mixing with your hands and kneed for about 60 seconds. Lightly oil bowl and add dough back in. 

3. Cover and let rise for 2-3 hours. 

4. After 2-3 hours, remove from bowl and punch down. Roll back into ball and let sit for 30 minutes. 

5. Lay on lightly floured surface and roll very thin. Top with toppings and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. 

6. I just rolled out one pizza crust and it was a funky rectangular shape that reminded me of a map of the state of Illinois, lol. Hubby and I like different things on a pizza so we each topped our halves with something different.

He had fresh spinach, cherry tomatoes, grilled chicken, mushrooms and mozzarella cheese with a drizzle of srirracha sauce. My half was vegetarian. I had fresh spinach, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, capers and goat cheese.

This was one delicious crust!! If you have a pizza stone, put it in the oven while you're pre-heating it so it's nice and hot. It will give you a nice crispy crust. This crust was so good and I love the honey that was added to it. Next time, I will use small chunks of fresh garlic in my crust so it has that burst of flavor in every bite.

  2. This is seriously beautiful!! I like the mix of seasoning IN the dough, and wondering if flour substitutions might work? Maybe coconut or almond flour? It looks so #artisan, can't wait smell this one baking.
