Bratwurst and Vegetable Pizza from Scratch


I made my first pizza from scratch last week, with homemade half whole 
wheat dough all in all pretty easy,  super tasty and healthy.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of bread flour
  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon active yeast 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • about 1 1/2 cups of water enough to make a dough
  • 2 tablespoon of tomato paste 
  • freshly chopped oregano and basil about 1/2 a cup
  • 1/2 a zucchini sliced
  • 1/2 a yellow squash sliced
  • 5 mushrooms sliced 
  • 2 fresh tomatoes sliced 
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheeses of choice 
  • one cooked smoked bratwurst sliced
Method:

  1. Mix the flour with yeast and salt, keep a little back for kneading, then slowly mix in the water to make a dough
  2. let it sit for 5 minutes 
  3. knead it and let it rest another 45 minutes for the yeast to do its magic
  4. after the 45 minutes roll it out as flat as you can add flour to stop it sticking a pizza peel helps to transfer to and from oven
  5. top the pizza with tomato paste, fresh herbs, tomato, bratwurst and vegetables and the cheese
  6. also its wonderful to get a pizza stone and bake on this at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted
  7. serve and enjoy
