Here is a great sunday italian dinner, healthy whole wheat pizza recipe for a great summer dinner! Fire up the g...

  • 4 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour (I used a combination of freshly ground hard white winter wheat and barley ground slightly finer than bread flour + 1/4 cup gluten flour)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (I used date sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 3/4 cups water with 3 tablespoons of whey from yogurt or raw milk making up the total liquid (the whey is optional)
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil (not necessary but this helps tenderize the dough so it’s soft inside yet crunchy on the bottom)
  • 5 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 16 oz fresh mozzarella
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 oz fresh basil
