Servings: 8 slices
- 1 cup warm water
- 2 1/2 teaspoons dry active yeast
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tablespoon vital wheat gluten
- 2 tablespoon flaxseed meal
- 1 tablespoon applesauce
- 1 teaspoon salt
Use a fork to combine water, yeast, and sugar in a small bowl--set aside until foaming. If mixture won't foam, you may want to start over from scratch.
Combine all remaining ingredients (except applesauce) in large mixing bowl. Add foamy yeast and applesauce. If dough is too sticky to handle with your fingers, add a tablespoon of flour. If it's too dry to hold together, add a teaspoon or more of water. Knead dough for just a minute or two.
Set dough aside in a warm place for 1 hour, or until it doubles in size. Preheat oven to 415 degrees F.
Knead, stretch, and roll out dough to fill pizza pan.
Cover with your favorite sauce and toppings.
Bake pizza at 415 degrees F for 15 minutes, or until dough is cooked through and golden brown.
