Whole Wheat Pizza

After a long search for the exact Pizza recipe which turns out to be really good, I got one from here: http://www.rakskitchen.net/2010/03/home-made-pizza.html

The pizza made was really good. But, there was a constant guilt factor that kept pestering me that it was full of all-purpose flour which is notorious for its not-so-good-for-health status. So, there I was, hitting the "Enter" key on Google Search for a whole wheat based pizza, but could not get my hands on such a good thing. (Or rather, I wanted to try out something on my own).

Then, I thought I will modify the recipe from the above given link, so that it was 2 parts whole wheat flour and 1 part all purpose flour. And, there I was in the kitchen, making the healthier pizza.

To tell you the truth, it was not entirely like the pizza made from all-purpose flour. The wheat flavour was apparent, but nevertheless, it was good and more than the taste, it was 60% "I am eating healthy" feeling :-) It made our stomachs a bit heavy also, and we had to reduce our dinner intake that day by almost 75% (I did the pizza at around 6 pm)

So, now I have a good recipe on my hands which I can readily share with others. And below is the final product...

Yes, you are right...Those are mango pieces on the right half of the pizza...I should never forget that my husband is a huge mango fan and he wanted those pieces...I was not so adventurous like him and the left half is me and my kid's half :-)

And this is the yeast-milk etc mixture made in the beginning of the process. This bowl has a base that is heart-shaped and the mixture took that shape. Giving you a chance to see not a bleeding heart, but an yellow heart :-)
