Fall means that at least a couple of times a month, Saturday night becomes pizza night! It is always so much fun to spend the time together making and rolling out the dough, adding the fresh ingredients and enjoying piping hot pizza fresh from the oven! It is one of our favorite family activities.
I like pizza don’t get me wrong, but what I really love is focaccia. It’s hands-down my favorite and I will ALWAYS choose it over pizza. So, when Hodgson Mill sent us organic flour and yeast – the mister went to work baking a super yummy focaccia for me. I thought it would be fun to submit our focaccia recipe into the Hodgson Mill Build a Better Pizza Contest, since it is much more unique than a traditional pizza. If you feel so inclined, you can vote for our recipe! Not only is this focaccia out of this world, it’s vegan too! Want to give it a try? Read on for the recipe and learn how to enter to win a Hodgson Mill prize pack for your family. And here is what you will need:
What you will need:
- 1 1/2 cups Hodgson Mill organic white flour
- 2 cups Hodgson Mill whole-wheat flour
- 1 whole packet Hodgson Mill yeast
- 1 tablespoon organic olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon organic sugar
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
- organic garlic powder
- organic dried oregano
- organic Parmesan
Step 1: Preheat oven to 500°, place pizza stone in oven. In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water. Sprinkle the yeast over the top, and let stand until the yeast starts to bubble.
Step 2: In your stand mixture, use your dough hook to mix the olive oil and salt into the yeast mixture and add the wheat flour and 1 cup of the white flour until a large bowl forms.
Step 3: Use the remaining flour to sprinkle onto a surface, then knead the dough ball for a few minutes. Place the dough in an oiled bowl, and turn to coat the surface. Cover with a towel and let stand in a warm place for an hour.
Step 4: Drape the dough over your fists and gently pull the edges downwards, while rotating. When dough has reached the desired size, place on the pizza stone.
Step 5: Drizzle with organic olive and sprinkle with salt, organic garlic powder, organic oregano and organic Parmesan.
Step 6: Bake for 7 minutes or until crust is crisp and starting to brown. Enjoy!
