Whip up this 100% whole wheat pizza dough in your food processor. It hardly needs kneading or rising time. You can make this pizza in less than the amount of time it would take for pizza delivery. Dinner is ready! Yields two medium (11″ diameter) pizzas.
*Tomato note: Please use tomatoes that come in a BPA-free can (Muir Glen) or tetra pack (San Marzano). BPA is bad stuff.
**Toppings shown here: You’ll need one medium bell pepper per pizza (I used 1/2 red and 1/2 orange). Slice the pepper into long, then strips. Sauté the pepper in a teaspoon or two of olive oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until the peppers are wilting and lightly charred. Transfer to a plate lined with a folded paper towel until you’re ready to top the pizza. Proceed as directed.
Pizza stone option: This crust turns out especially great if you bake it on a hot pizza stone or pizza steel (I have this one) instead of a baking sheet. The pizza will bake much faster on a hot surface, so keep an eye on it and reduce the cooking time accordingly.
Grill option: This dough works great on the grill. Lay it carefully on the grates and avoid touching for the first minute of cooking.
Individual pizzas: Divide this dough into quarters (instead of halves) to make 4 “personal pan” pizzas, each about 6 inches in diameter. Bake about 7 to 10 minutes (or less, if using a pizza stone), until the crust and cheese are lightly golden.
No food processor? Combine the flour, Parmesan, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk to combine, then drizzle the yeast and water mixture into the bowl while stirring with a large spoon. Stir until all of the flour has been incorporated and the dough comes together, then proceed with the next step.
