The Best homemade pizza ever and bit about “Delancy : A man, a woman, a restaurant and a marriage”
The perfect 100% whole wheat pizza base with some tips to get the base just perfect!
Ingredients
For the dough
For the topping
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, yeast, and warm water. Stir it around and let sit for 5 minutes or until the yeast is foamy. This is called “proofing” the yeast. If the yeast doesn’t foam up, your yeast is dead. Chuck it and open a fresh packet. Add the olive oil, honey, and salt. Mix by hand with a whisk. Add 1.5 cups of atta and mix till it comes together like dough.
  2. After mixing the dough, knead for 5-8 minutes by hand on your kitchen counter till the dough is smooth and elastic. To test, Poke the dough with your finger – if it slowly bounces back, your dough is ready to rise. If not, keep kneading. If while kneading dough feels too wet, add up to 1/3 cup more of whole wheat flour.
  3. Coat the dough ball with olive oil and leave it for raising for 1-2 hours or its doubled in size (alternatively for the best flavour, put it the fridge and let it raise for 6 hours. Take it out and let it raise for another one hour)
  4. When the dough is doubled, gently punch the dough down to release all the air.
  5. Heat the oven to 250C for about 20 minutes or so. We are looking at a really hot oven.
  6. Divide the dough into 2 balls and roll into thin circle (or in my case this time rectangle since I baked it in a cookie sheet). Brush each pizza with olive oil, spread pizza sauce on top, spread some grated cheese and then your toppings and in the top it up with some more cheese.
  7. Bake the pizza for about 15-20 minutes till nicely browned and crisp.
  8. Bite into the perfect slice.
