We love pizza! It's easy to make pizza at home. I like to make it more nutritious by making the pizza crust from sprouted, whole wheat flour.
Once you get the hang of this recipe, it's so easy you'll want to make it once a week for your family. We love Friday night because it's Pizza Night! Perfect with a summer salad and some homemade ice cream for dessert.
We love throwing pizza dinner parties and having friends over to help make pizza and ice cream — it's really fun for kids!Print
Sprouted Flour Pizza
- Water, filtered (1 1/8 cups)
- Olive oil (3 tablespoons, plus extra to coat the bowl)
- Sprouted flour (1 1/2 cups)
- White flour, unbleached (1 1/2 cups)
- Sea salt (1 1/2 tsp)
- Honey (1 1/2 tsp)
- Yeast, dry, active (1 packet)
- Rice flour
- Toppings of your choice
1. Place all ingredients (except the toppings) in a large bowl and mix well with clean hands.
2. Remove the dough from the bowl and set on a lightly floured surface. Knead it for 2-3 minutes, then shape into a ball.
3. Coat the bowl with olive oil. Place the dough back in the bowl and turn it once to coat with oil.
4. Cover the bowl with a dish towel or plastic bowl cover and let it stand for at least 30 minutes or until the dough doubles in size (the warmer your kitchen is, the faster the dough will rise).
5. When ready to bake, move the oven racks up and lay your pizza stone on the floor of your oven. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. (Make sure your oven is clean. If there are crumbs on the bottom of the oven, you may end up setting off the smoke alarm.)
6. With clean hands, pull and stretch the dough and shape into a pizza. You can also do this with a rolling pan but I find that it's easier to use your hands.
7. Place on a greased cookie sheet or a wire mesh pizza screen (I prefer the latter). I like to put rice flour on the bottom of the pizza dough, and on top of the screen, so the pizza dough will not stick to the screen. (You can also use corn meal but I find that rice flour works even better.)
8. Add your toppings — tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and whatever else you like on your pizza.
9. Using a pizza peel, set the pizza on the wire mesh pizza pan directly on the pizza stone.
10. Bake 8-10 minutes at 500 degrees.
11. Cut into triangles with a pizza cutter and enjoy!
This recipe uses 1/2 sprouted flour and 1/2 white flour. I find that this makes it rise better and it's more kid-friendly. I've made this pizza for lots of kids and never had one complain because it's made with whole wheat flour.
If you want to use 100% whole wheat sprouted flour, then you will need to add 2-3 TBS of vital wheat gluten (where to buy vital wheat gluten). The vital wheat gluten will give the dough the rise and airiness that it needs — otherwise, you'll end up with a hard, flat, dense pizza dough.
You do need some tools for this recipe, but trust me, it makes it a lot easier having the right tools (I put the links in below for where to buy the various tools). It's almost impossible to get a pizza into the oven without a pizza peel.
And you'll want a pizza stone — since it makes the oven hotter and the pizza crust cooks so much better. Also, a wire mesh pizza screen allows the air to circulate and the crust will come out better than if you use a cookie sheet.
If you don't want to use a pan or a screen, you can also just put the pizza directly on the pizza stone — but make sure you sprinkle some rice flour on the stone first. Do NOT sprinkle the rice flour on the stone until JUST BEFORE you put the pizza in — otherwise, the rice flour will burn and generate a lot of smoke.

Support Me & My Work
I have been blogging about real food, alternative health, and about the dangers of vaccines and Big Pharma since 2007. As a result, the cabal has punished me severely financially via the IRS, FTC, hacks, etc. I lost my blog network in 2014 which I now believe was an orchestrated attack. Last summer, I lost 80% of my income from my blog due to the Google algorithm change that impacted almost all health bloggers including Dr. Mercola.I'm now working to build my blog and YouTube channel and I appreciate all the support from my fans. Once I can start making more money, I will be able to hire some help and childcare, so I can create more content. Thank you for any help you can offer. Here are some ways you can support me as a content creator and journalist:
- Support me on Patreon (I'm still setting up the bonuses from the tiers but you can start donating now).
- Buy my shampoo or skincare. Want more info? Read my review of MONAT. Or click here to learn how to order MONAT and save the most money. Got questions? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or if you need help placing an order.

- Enroll in my online course: Online Marketing Simplified. Updates to the course are temporarily on hold so I can cover Q -- but I will be back to adding course lessons as soon as the storm is over and we are out of quarantine -- any week now!
- If you can't help financially, it's OK! You can help by sharing my content. Share my blog posts, YouTube videos, and Facebook & Instagram posts, and leave me comments. Sharing helps get my work seen -- and liking and commenting helps boost the content in the search engine algorithms.
