My oldest daughter just returned home after spending the month studying in Italy. In an effort to make her transition to reality a little more palatable, we decided to make homemade pizzas!
2 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. amaranth flour
1/4 c. warm water (about 115 degrees)
1 packet (5/16 oz.) fast rise yeast
1 T. raw agave nectar
1 c. cool water
1 T. olive oil
1 t. salt
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add agave nectar. Put aside. Put oil and salt in cool water. Put aside. Then put flour in food processor, making sure you have the dough blade on. Set for dough. Turn on. Add cool water mixture slowly. Then add yeast mixture. Mix until a ball forms. Put ball into oiled bowl, cover with a dish towel and let rise for one hour. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes. Then form into balls. I make one ball for each person who will be making a pizza. I have made as many as 5 individual size pizzas, and as few as 2 large pizzas. Place dough balls on an oiled cookie sheet, cover with oiled plastic wrap and a towel. Let rise for another 2-3 hours. Roll out onto surface dusted with cornmeal. Then create your pizza! Bake at 425 degrees for about 10-15 minutes.
There you have it folks! A meal made with love!!
