Going through some ideas...i'm tinkering with whole wheat pizzas..any ideas are appreciated..

Here's some test cooks I made today, I'm also thinking a pulled pork, bbq sauce & fresh basil pizza ..the pork butt would have to be smoked prior to the eggfest but that's no big deal

Left side is Cabot Pepperjack and fresh basil (with a dusting of Tasty Licks Treehugger Veggie Blend) , the right side is homemade pesto (pine nuts, fresh basil, EVOO and vegan parmesan cheese - wife is lactose intolerant) and grilled chicken breast (rubbed with lemon pepper)

Both came out pretty damned tasty. I started keeping the temps down a bit for a try - i have been cooking at 550-600 and i tended to burn the bottoms, so i cooked at 400-450.

    I knocked around several different attempts at whole wheat pizza dough last year and never could get one I was happy with. High hydration is the key. I kept getting them too dry or too tough. I settled on doing about half whole wheat and half high gluten white flour. Texture and moisture of the dough where acceptable but really not as good as using white flour.
  • honestly i bought the dough from trader joes...and i liked it a lot, good flavor, chewy, and not at all like cardboard
  • I've been really happy with Trader Joe's dough! Haven't tried the whole wheat - the white stuff is just so good.
