development – spelt pizza dough perfection

09.09 036

Over the past month we’ve been on a pizza kick.  We’ve experimented with whole wheat, spelt, oats, and a few other gf grains in between.  We have decided on a favorite tomato sauce (when I don’t prepare our own), and have even tried a mediterranean sauce to use instead of tomato.  Toppings of all kinds found their way onto our pizza; fresh herbs and anything else that was lying around.  It has been a lot of fun.  Sunday we shared some pizza with my parents and brothers: spelt bread with cheese/herb dana jeera chicken/turkey sausage/pepperoni.  Per request of my lovely mother…here is the recipe.  Enjoy!

Spelt Pizza Dough

(makes two pizzas that will cover large cookie sheets)

In mixer combine water and yeast. Add remaining ingredients and mix on low with a bread hook for 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle corn meal on the cookie sheets and roll dough onto pan. After spreading sauce and desired toppings, cook at 350 for 12 minutes.

Enjoy! Serves 8-10
