Instructions
Pizza Dough –
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add wheat flour, sugar and active instant dry yeast – mix well.
  2. Add water and stir it quickly using a spoon. The mixture should be stringy.
  3. Leave it in a warm place for 60 mins until it is frothy and bubbly, doubled up.
  4. Add all purpose flour along with salt and roughly mix it with a spoon.
  5. The dough should come together. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil on the dough.
  6. Knead it for 2-3 mins slowly by adding additional olive oil as needed. The dough might be little sticky, add very little wheat flour or oil as needed.
  7. Keep the dough covered with cling wrap and rest in a warm place for one hour or until it is doubled up.
Minto Pesto Sauce –
  1. In a mixer jar, add all ingredients required to make the pesto and grind it into a smooth paste without adding water.
  2. Remove onto an airtight container. The top portion might turn darker shade of green due to oxidation.
Whole Wheat Pesto Pizza –
  1. Split the pizza dough into 4 equal parts. Take a ball of dough and press it gently on an aluminum foil greased with olive oil and dusted with wheat flour.
  2. Pat it into a thin circle of even thickness – this is the pizza base.
  3. Spread a layer of mint pesto sauce evenly on the pizza.
  4. Place diced tomatoes, onions and grated/chopped cheese balls. Drizzle olive oil around the edges.
  5. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C for 10-12 mins until the bottom is slightly crisp and golden. The cheese should be bubbling.
  6. Serve hot immediately with a sprinkle of pizza seasonings.
