Pizza, Pizza! Homemade Flatbread Recipe

IMG_8371

Have you ever been sitting at home, about to prepare the spinach and salmon salad that you eat just about everyday when  that ‘irresistible cheesy pizza craving’ hits? Well maybe this isn’t as normal as I think it is. Last weekend I couldn’t help myself, I had to have pizza. I created the perfect flatbread pizza crust recipe. Its much better for you than going out and getting pizza from a restaurant. On top of the whole wheat, no egg or yeast crust,  I brushed on olive oil, garlic and fresh herbs,  basil, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and prosciutto! Toss it in the oven for 25 mins and you’ll have the best healified pizza around!

What you’ll need for the crust:

1 1/3 cup of whole wheat flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup skim milk

3 tsp olive oil

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp garlic powder

What you’ll need for the toppings (or toppings of your choice):

Fresh mozzarella Cheese

3 Roma Tomatoes

Prosciutto

Fresh Basil

Olive oil for brushing

Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herbs

Parmesan Cheese

Mix all the dry ingredient for the crust, add the wet and stir until dough forms. This dough will be on the dry side add a little more milk if desired. The texture of the crust will be cracker like on the bottom but chewy near the surface. Let the dough sit for 10 minutes. Roll out on a cookie sheet into your choice of shape. Cook the crust alone for 8 minutes at 400. Take out the cooked crust and brush with olive oil or sauce. Add toppings and return to the oven to 20-25 minutes. Remove when cheese is in its perfect melted state. Mmm.

Enjoy!
