My blood sugar shot through the roof last night after we ate out, so back to the menu plan that mum and I devised on Sunday afternoon. Plus, it's babysitting night! Hanging out with the brother while the parents have dinner with some friends. No parents = junk food. Plain and simple. If we don't order pizza, we have a frozen pizza. If we don't do that we make the mose delectable thing we can find in a cookbook. Pasta carbonara, macaroni and cheese, kedgeree. You name it, my brother and I have probably made it while no one else is around.
But now I have diabetes.
So we work around that. Pizza was actually on the menu for tonight anyway! Sweet deal. I made a 100% whole wheat crust since I've been ordered to stay away from anything white by my doctor. I split the dough in half so that the brother didn't have to deal with all my vegetables. But here it is... Grilled vegetable pizza with 100% whole wheat crust.
100% Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
2 Cups whole wheat flour
1 package or 2 1/4 teaspoons dry yeast
3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 Cup warm water (more or less)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon honey
In a large mixing bowl combine whole wheat flour, yeast, and salt. Blend in water, oil, and honey by hand to bring together to make a dough. When dough is in a ball, cover with a tea towel and let it rise for a few hours.
Grilled Vegetable Pizza on Whole Wheat Crust
Eggplant, cut into slices
Zucchini or Summer Squash, cut into slices
Red Pepper, cut into slices
Salt and Pepper
Mozzerella cheese, grated
Feta Cheese, crumbled
Preheat oven to 425 F. Brush the vegetables with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the eggplant, zucchini, and red pepper until nice char marks are achieved and the veggies are fragrant and softened. Remove from heat to a plate. Flatten dough onto a pan that has been sprinkled with cornmeal. Spread sauce over the surface and top with grated cheese. Begin layering the grilled vegetables, topping with sliced olives and feta crumbles. Bake the Pizza for 15-20 minutes or until toppings and crust are a nice golden brown.
