Experimenting in the kitchen is one of the most exciting challenges. In search of healthier recipes, I invented this one. I couldn't believe that I would hit the jack pot at first try. The dough is thin, without the dominant smell and taste of the integral flours, tasty and soft, it bakes well in a short time, and you can put whatever you want on top. I avoid meat and I honestly didn't miss it here.
The dough is made quickly and immediately spreads and bakes, there is no need to wait to rise or to rest. From this amount you can get 3-4 medium sized pizzas. Feel free to experiment with flours and ratio.

For the dough
  • 1 cup rye flour
  • 1/2 cup barley flour
  • 1/2 cup mixed buckwheat and oat flour
  • 1/3 cup semolina
  • 1/2 sachet of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 full tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • a little water if needed depends on the flour and absorbency
Topping (for 1 pizza)
  • 2 red chopped peppers (mild or spicy to taste)
  • 1 diced tomato
  • a few thin circles of onion
  • 100 g grated yellow cheese
  • 2-3 tablespoons of tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped olives
  • oregano
  • sesame if desired
  1. Mix all the ingredients for the dough except the oil. Knead the dough by hand, if it is too dry add a little water until you hit the right density. The dough should be slightly sticky. Knead quite short enough to form a ball, finally put 2 tablespoons of oil in the palm of your hand and coat the dough, knead it lightly, the stickiness will disappear.
  2. Cut off about 1/3 of the dough and spread it on a non-stick tray (coated with very little oil) with your palm. The dough should be thin to 5-6 mm.
  3. Apply the tomato sauce, sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired, then add the cheese, peppers, tomatoes, onions, olives, sprinkle with oregano at the end.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes in a preheated oven at maximum heat on the middle rack. Make sure the pizza is baked before removing it from the oven.
  5. Enjoy your healthy pizza!
