I guess later this week means now 🙂 I just couldn’t wait any longer to share this recipe with you.
You may think that I would use my greek yogurt to make some sort of parfait or smoothie, but nope…we are making pizza with it!
This recipe is amazing. It has under 5 ingredients and there is no need to wait to let it rise.
I’ve been staying off wheat in general since I see that I feel better off of it, but once a week i’ll have some sort of wheat product. This is a great way to enjoy it.
The crust is made with 100% whole wheat flour and greek yogurt. It is so good that my pizza connoisseur husband rated it a 9.5 out of 10!
It fits all my criteria:
Are there any reasons not to give this a try? I think not.
Greek Yogurt Pizza Crust
Adapted from modernfamilycooking
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup 0% plain greek yogurt
cornmeal, to sprinkle
Start by preheating your oven to 450 or 500 degrees F
I recently bought a pizza stone so I put that in the oven to preheat.
Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl. Then add the greek yogurt and mix again. You might need to add a few tablespoons more of flour. You don’t want very dry dough, but if it is too sticky it’s impossible to work with.
Roll the dough into a ball.
Spray some oil onto a piece of baking paper and sprinkle on some cornmeal. Place the ball of dough onto the paper. Roll out the dough as thin as you want. I like a thin crust pizza. Make the edges thicker like a regular pizza. You may need to oil your hands or rolling pin while doing this.
Place in the oven for about 15 minutes.
Take out of oven and top as you like. Place back in the oven till toppings are cooked and cheese is melted.
For my pizza I did half with veggies and half without. For the no veggie side I put a layer of shredded mozzarella then homemade pizza sauce then more cheese. For the veggies side I did half pizza sauce and half pesto. Then topped it with slices of mushrooms, zucchini, onions, and grape tomatoes. I then sprinkled very lightly a little mozzarella cheese.
The pesto that made is still not perfect so I don’t have a recipe to share for that, but I do love my pizza sauce.
5 Second Pizza Sauce
Adapted from oatmealwithafork
-2 cups of crushed tomatoes. I use a brand that says its tomato paste but it really isn’t, it has bits of tomatoes and has more liquid than the paste.
-1 Tb minced garlic or 1 tsp garlic powder
-1 tsp each of dried basil and oregano
-1/2 tsp thyme
-1 tsp honey (optional)
-1 tsp red wine vinegar
Blend all the ingredients in a blender. That’s all.
Did I mention how good this is??
This made only one pizza and was gone so fast, so next time I will double it and see if I can bake the crust 15 minutes and then freeze it. That way all I have to do is pop it out of the freezer, put on toppings and bake. Sounds good to me!
