Description

A delicious whole wheat pizza crust is baked in a cast iron skillet in under 15 minutes.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE DOUGH:
  • 1 cup Warm Water
  • 1 teaspoon Yeast, Active Dry
  • 1-¼ cup White Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ teaspoons Sea Salt
  • ¼ cups Olive Oil Plus Extra For Greasing Your Bowl And Pan
  • FOR THE PIZZA:
  • 2 whole Chicken Breasts, Cooked And Shredded
  • ¾ cups BBQ Sauce (I Used Trader Joe's), Plus Extra For Tossing With Your Cooked Chicken, And Extra For Serving
  • 5 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1-½ cup Mozzarella, Shredded
  • 1 cup Red Onions, Sliced
  • ¾ cups Parmesan Cheese, Shredded
  • ½ cups EACH: Celery, Green Onions, And Cilantro, All Chopped

Preparation

For the dough:
In a small bowl combine warm water with yeast and let it sit and dissolve for 5 minutes.

Rub olive oil in a medium sized bowl, and set aside

In the bowl of a mixer fitted with a dough attachment add in both flours and salt. On low speed drizzle in olive oil. Now slowly add in the yeast and water mixture until dough comes together. Dough will be very sticky.

Flour your hands and place dough into prepared bowl. Cover with a sheet of greased plastic wrap, and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour and up to 3 days (the longer the dough rests the better it will be).

Preheat oven to 475 F. Pull dough out of fridge, and knead it for about 1 minute. Let it rest for about 20 more minutes.

Spray olive oil spray in a large cast iron skillet (10 inches or bigger). Slightly roll dough out to about 10″ in diameter, or to fit your cast iron skillet. It should be about 1 inch in thickness. Put dough into your skillet.

Combine the cooked chicken and your desired amount of BBQ sauce and set aside.

Cover dough with BBQ sauce, and then evenly spread the garlic across the top. Now sprinkle 1 cup mozzarella cheese, chicken mixture and onions across the top. Top with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.

Put it into the oven and bake for about 15 minutes. Closely watch the pizza, it could be done in as little as 8 minutes. Lift the crust to make sure it is nice and golden underneath, and cheese is melted and bubbly, and you’ve got yourself a perfectly cooked pizza.

Remove it from the oven and place pizza onto a cutting board. Top with celery, green onions, and cilantro. Cut into wedges and enjoy!

Serve with extra BBQ sauce and ranch dressing for dipping!
