For as long as I have been cooking, I’ve always put a bit of granulated sugar in my pizza dough. Recently, we cut out all sugar, and the dough just lacks that pizazz!
Today, Kylie wanted to make pizza, and rather than putting in sugar, she replaced it with Truvia!
This is actually part of her ongoing home economics class. Cooking is always a great learning experience for kids of all ages, and she absolutely loves it. She’s finally old enough to where I can let her take the reigns and take over the kitchen (as long as she remembers to clean up!).
Kylie’s Pizza Dough
- 3/4 cup warm water
- 1 ounce brewer’s yeast
- 2 cups (or more) all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon Truvia
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- In a small bowl, dissolve brewer’s yeast in warm water. Push it aside and let it sit there for about 10 minutes.
- In a larger bowl or your mixer bow, combine 2 cups flour, olive oil, salt, white sugar and the yeast mixture. Cover for approximately 15-20 minutes and let it rise until it doubles in volume
- You might want to take this time to preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Turn and roll the dough out onto a well floured surface. Shape it in to whatever form you want your pizza. Cover with your favorite sauce and toppings (lots of veggies!!) and bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
A healthier version of this would be to use Wheat Flour, but my daughter wanted to use white flour this time, mixed with brown rice flour.
