Weekend Dinner 01

This is an easy dinner but the dough for the crust takes a bit of time
so I am calling it a weekend meal. This is typically a Sunday meal for
us but with the snow I was home early on Friday so I decided to give
it a try. We were very close to giving into frozen pizza. So glad we

Crust is a 60% whole wheat crust. As I recall I used: 1 cup water, 1
tbsp yeast, 1 cup white bread flour, 1 cup whole wheat bread flour,
1/2 cup stone ground whole wheat flour, 2 tbsp wheat gluten, 2 tbsp
olive oil, and 20 or so grindings of sea salt. All in bread machine on
dough setting. Divided into three balls and then rolled out for thin
crusts. Used hearth stone in oven and fancy peel for delivery.

Pizza 1: Garlic and olive oil on crust, potatoes boiled 10 minutes in
skin then sliced, sliced shallot, drizzle of olive oil, and sprinkling
of oregano, salt, and pepper. Baked 7 minutes.

Pizza 2: Caramelized red onion, Brussels sprouts boiled for 5 minutes
and sliced, drizzle of olive oil, and sprinkling of thyme, salt, and
pepper. Baked 7 minutes.

Pizza 3: Spaghetti sauce, sliced green pepper, sliced shallot, pan
fried tofu, and sprinkling of fake mozzarella.

Overall quite good. Next time going to try putting the onions on top
of the sprouts to keep them from rolling.
