In January of this year I started a new series on Inspired by Charm called A Year of Yeast. When I created this series, I knew I wanted to find a really great pizza dough recipe. I was thrilled the other day when I stumbled across this recipe for Pizza Dippers. To be honest, I was excited for several reasons. First, I love homemade pizza. Second, I love lots of sauce and this recipe suggests an extra side of it for dipping. And finally, there was an option in this recipe for whole wheat. Perfection!
I pretty much followed the recipe except for a few minor tweaks in my toppings. I figured both the whole wheat crust and some extra veggies on top would make me feel a little bit better about eating pizza. I sliced some fresh yellow squash and baby portobello mushrooms and sprinkled them on top. I also added some julienned fresh basil leaves on top before baking and a few small, whole leaves after the pizza came out of the oven.
The pizza was delicious and the crust turned out beautifully. It was wonderfully soft and flavorful. The addition of the sugar in the dough really brought everything together. I think I just may have found my go-to pizza dough recipe!
I tried to limit myself to only a few slices for dinner, but as the night progressed, most of it disappeared. – You know a pizza is truly delicious if you can eat it straight from the fridge!
