Healthy Pizza Crust

I made this for dinner last night, and I was impressed. The pizza crust I make  is usually quite similar, but this had some extra flavor! It’s one of our new favorite pizza crust recipes.

Naturally, by the time I remembered to take a picture the pizza was devoured and no longer looked picture perfect. This recipe was found in my Kitchenaid Mixer recipe book.

What to serve this with:

Healthy Pizza Crust

Makes 1 pizza crust.

  • 3/4 cup warm water (110 degrees F.)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 2 teaspoons instant active dry yeast

I used my Kitchen Aid stand mixer (I highly recommend one). Add the water and yeast and let stand until dissolved. (At least 7 mins.) I then added the rest of the ingredients and turned on the mixer (until dough is no longer sticking to the side and wraps around the bread hook). You may have to had another tbsp of water (I did).

You should cover it with saran wrap and let it rise for at least an hour, then punch it back down and let rise for another hour.

After that, just roll it out and top with your favorite toppings! For us last night, it was salsa, green peppers and mozzarella cheese!

  1. Hey, that’s a great idea of putting garlic and spices in! I normally just use salt and pepper, but yours sounds really divine.
