Who doesn't like pizza? You don't? Maybe you just didn't try a good one? Maybe it's time to?
I would like to say thanks to Food Network and Iron Chef Bobby Flay for the inspiration to make a healthier dough. As you see, I put in the title DIA*- this star means that this dough will still increase your blood sugar but I tried my bet to make it healthier and more suitable for diabetics. Also if you are watching your weight, this one is definitely a better alternative to a regular dough.
1) We will need to be sifting our flour. Please don't be lazy, it does make a big difference, because it makes flour much lighter and makes it easy to mix with other ingredients. Start with sifting 2.5 cups of white and then 1.5 cups of whole wheat flour. You will see large particles lefts after sifting the whole wheat one. Add them as well, but not all (maybe like 60-70%). Add yeast. (usually people mix yeast with warm water first- but this recipe in particular has a different way).
2) Add 1.5 table spoons of honey, 1.5 tea spoons of salt, 2 table spoons of olive oil, 1.5 cups of warm water and mix your dough well. Now take a look at it-too gooey- add more flour, too hard- add a bit of warm water and keep mixing it for about 10 minutes.
3) Check your dough. I use the following method: press with your fingers: if only your arm muscles "moved" - it's a perfect one. If you feel that your body muscles helped- it's too strong.
4) Add 2 table spoons of olive oil to a bowl, put your dough in it, cover with a towel and leave it to raise for about an hour. After one hour mix the dough and leave it for another hour or so. Your pizza dough is ready.
5) Cut this dough into 4 pieces and roll into a pizza shape. Leave the dough to rest for 30-40 minutes after rolling. Enjoy making your pizzas Glam Chefs... (Yes, that peel with pizza IS heavy, you can see the struggle on my face.. but no pain no gain as they say haha)
