Pizza - Spelt Flour Crust
This was my first time making a spelt crust. I searched a couple vegetarian web sites and found a recipe on vegweb.com. The only ingredient I added to the original recipe was garlic salt.
Pizza – Spelt Flour Crust
3 cups spelt flour
1/4 + cup cornmeal
1 pkg yeast
2 teaspoons agave or maple syrup
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup water,
thyme, oregano, basil dried or fresh to taste
garlic salt (optional)
1 15 oz. can of pizza sauce ( I used Trader Joe’s)
soy sausage (cook in oil then add to crust)
1 red onion
1 green or red pepper
soy mozzarella cheese
Dissolve yeast in 1 cup warm water with maple syrup. Set aside.
Mix spelt, 1/4 cup cornmeal, salt, dried herbs in bowl. Add oil and yeast and mix well with hands.
Knead it for 5-10min. Thin coat oil on bowl and dough ball, cover with damp cloth. Set aside. Rise for at least 1 hour.
Assemble Pizza: Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
Lightly oil square baking sheet, then dust with remaining cornmeal.
Stretch out dough to cover most of sheet. Place in hot oven for 2-4 minutes, take out .
Layer sauce, onions, peppers cheese & sausage.
Place back in oven for 4-6 minutes until crust is nicely browned.
