100% Whole Wheat Pizza Crust (Bread Maker Machine)



Pizza dough made easy in the bread machine! Basically the dough program in the bread maker machine replaces the tedious hand kneading of dough and at the same time provide a warmer temperature for the dough to double in size with the presence of yeast, the dough program usually takes about 1 hour depending on your bread maker machine.

Fluffy crusty pizza at home? Anytime! Baking with 100% whole wheat flour is not only a healthier option, it also give a aromatic nutty texture. Homemade pizza is really not that difficult, making the crust is easier than it seems especially with bread machine. After knowing how to make pizza at home, i shamelessly think that my pizza is comparable to those in restaurants, now i can create any pizza toppings i like!

Make 15 inch pizza
 
Ingredients
 2½ Tbsp vital wheat gluten
 1 cup or 240ml water, room temperature
 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive Oil
 1 tsp sea salt
 1 Tbsp sugar 
 1 tsp active dry yeast 
 1 tsp cumin seeds (optional)
 
Method
1. Sift flour and vital wheat gluten together.
 
2. Add the water and olive oil to the bread pan, then add mixed flour. Add sea salt and sugar, then lastly the dry yeast. Do not let the yeast touches the liquid or salt until the mixing commences, because this will kill the yeast. Or simply add all ingredients in the order suggested by your bread machine manual and program the dough cycle according to the manufacturer’s directions.

3. Add the cumin seeds when the dough is formed or after 30 minutes.

4. When the dough cycle ends, remove the dough from the machine.
 
5. On a floured work surface, roll out the dough until it is less than 6mm thick. A large pizza will be about 15 inches in diameter with thinner crust, the medium pizza will be about 10 inches with a thicker crust.
 
6. Transfer dough onto greased pizza pan. Let it proof for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 230.

7. Spread sauce over and top with half of the cheese, then spread with your favourite toppings. Lastly, cover with balanced cheese. Read more on ideas for veggie toppings.

8. Bake for about 10-15 minutes until cheese is bubbly and cooked through.

9. Season with TABASCO® sauce for some kick. Slice the pizza, serve immediately!
