High Protein Pizza Dough

Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup pea protein powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

  1. Add 1 cup of warm water to a glass measuring cup. Sprinkle the yeast over the top of the water and allow to sit and active for 5 minutes.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flours, pea protein, and salt. Pour the yeast water and olive oil into the bowl and mix until a soft dough ball forms. Knead the dough on a well floured surface for a couple minutes. Then place back in the bowl, cover, and allow to rise in a warm spot for 1 hour.

  3. Punch the dough down and remove from the bowl. You can choose to make one large pizza with the dough, or divide in two and freeze the second half for later use. Roll the dough out and place on a pizza pan sprinkled with corn meal (optional).
  4. Bake at 400°F for 4-5 minutes. Then top with sauce and other toppings. Bake until cheese looks bubbly or the edges of the crust begin to brown (another 8-10 minutes).

Recipe Notes

You can substitute a little more of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat, making the rations 3/4 cup to 1/2 cup with similar results if you want more whole grains.
