Italian Style Dishes

Whether authentic or Americanized, I LOVE Italian food! It just has that comfort factor. I like to know that it doesn't have to be refined flour based pasta and riddled with carbs for me to be happy.

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
Very Good 4.7/5
(26 ratings)

I worked for months and months to perfect a whole wheat pizza dough, and I think I've finally found it. We love it, love it, love it! This makes enough dough for two large pizzas. We normally use one, freeze the other. To use the frozen one, thaw on the counter and then place in off oven on a pizza pan. Pour a recently boiled kettle of water in a roasting pan under the dough and close the oven. The warm, moist air reproofs the frozen dough.
