One heckuva deep dish pizza

I’ve discovered a new homemade pizza dough:  whole wheat pizza dough.  My breadmaker has an awesome recipe for it.  This past weekend I threw all the ingredients into the breadmaker and decided to recreate a pizza similar to one at my favorite pizza place:  Pablo’s Pizza.  The pizza is called the Delta Blues and has spinach, blue cheese, bacon and mushrooms.  I made mine with spinach, blue cheese, bacon, mozzarella cheese and broccoli because it was there and I wanted to throw it on the pizza.  The sauce was a mix of tomato sauce and pesto sauce.  The pizza was amazing!  Here’s the recipe for the curst:


1 cup water (lukewarm)

2 tbsp oil

1 tbsp sugar

1 tsp salt

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 1/2 cups bread flour

2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast


Bread maker program 5 (dough)


I put the wet ingredients (water, oil, sugar) in first, then the flours, then the salt and yeast.


Once the dough is done, (if you are using it for 1 deep dish pizza) press into a 9×13 metal pan that you have sprayed with oil spray (or a misto if you have one) and sprinkled with cornmeal.  Prick the dough several times with a fork once you have it pressed into the pan.


Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes.  Remove, add all of your toppings, and return to the oven for another 15-20 minutes or until the edges are brown and all cheeses are bubbly.


This crust is amazing!
