Vegan whole wheat pizza crust recipe

One of my favorite things to do after a busy day is to get a little messy in the kitchen with my boyfriend. We LOVE cooking together. It makes it much more enjoyable and we’ve had a blast trying out all the recipes I find on Pinterest. The other day, we were craving our favorite pizza from Sticks and Stones. But neither of us felt like making the 40 minute drive to Greensboro plus the Oscars were coming on! So we found a no rise wheat pizza crust recipe (that was vegan for me of course). It is SOOOO easy and quick and let me tell you… it was absolutely delicious! We scarfed that whole thing down. The recipe is perfect for two people so grab your boyfriend or hubby or best friend, load up on some yummy toppings, and enjoy a hot slice of homemade pizza.

 

pizza

 

Ingredients:

– 1 Tbsp yeast

– 1 cup warm water

– 2 Tbsp olive oil

– 2 & 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

– 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning

– sprinkle of salt

 

Mix all of the ingredients together*. Press onto a pizza stone or greased baking sheet and top with any ingredients you like. Bake for 12-15 minutes at 450 degrees. Bon appetit!

 

*I adapted this recipe from here. The original recipe called for regular flour but since I used all whole wheat, you may need to add a little more than a cup of water to get the right consistency for the dough.
