Recipe: Higher Fibre Spelt Pizza

A delicious homemade pizza base made with wholegrain spelt with some extra fibre. Healthier fakeaways.
Servings: 3 25cm crusts
Prep Time2 hrs
Cook Time12 mins
Total Time2 hrs 12 mins

Ingredients

  • 30 g Spelt Porridge flakes - soaked in 30g of water for about an hour
  • 2 tsp dried yeast
  • 200 ml warm water
  • 150 g whole grain spelt flour
  • 150 g white bread flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbs oil – olive / rapeseed / hemp etc.
  • Polenta & your choice of pizza toppings.

Instructions

  • Pour the water into bowl, add the yeast and swirl until it is dissolved, leave for 5 mins if needed to activate it. Add the other ingredients.
  • Knead with the dough hook attachment of your mixer on the lowest speed for about 4 minutes until a smooth stretchy dough has formed (if you knead by hand it will take longer).
  • Cover with cling film and leave in a warm place for a few hours. It should more than double in size.
  • Turn out onto a floured board of worktop and gently knock the dough back. Divide the dough into 3.
  • Gently shape each quantity of dough into a pizza shapes on a baking tray or pizza stone liberally sprinkled with polenta to stop sticking.
  • Spread with tomato sauce (I used my high fibre tomato and lentil sauce), arrange your toppings and sprinkle with cheese.
  • Bake in a very hot oven (GM7 / 220c / 425F) for about 12 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and the pizza is golden around the edges.
