I'm giving this recipe a 5/5 b/c i've made at least over 25 healthy pizza doughs & this version has been the best. I used the whole wheat, whole buckwheat, whole soy, and wheat gluten flours at the ratios recommended and substituted brown sugar for the honey. The dough came out excellent in terms of strength, elasticity and roll-ability. I usually use a rolling pin to roll out the dough before pre-baking in an oven. The crust was delicious and light and a better flavor/taste than whole wheat alone. I plan to experiment with more oil to make the dough more foccacia like. I love that this dough is a good source of protein as the soy and buckwheat are both excellent sources of quality protein.
Excellent dough! I had a hard time finding buckwheat flour. I substituted some spelt flour and it worked very well. I loved the flavor of this dough and it is a very easy recipe to make. I made for freezer tag in the oamc forum. I shaped the crust and then baked for 5 minutes. I then cooled, wrapped and placed in the freezer. When I wanted to make pizza, I topped the frozen dough with toppings and baked for about 7 minutes. Worked wonderfully. The crust came out crunchy and delicious!
We've been trying different pizza crusts for awhile, and we really liked this one. It had a crisp outside, a soft inside, and it held up to toppings. I had some popcorn flour left over from something else, so i put in some of that instead of the other types, and because of that i had to add a bit more whole wheat flour to make it less sticky, but it came out very well, so i'll be filing this recipe.
