Method:

  •          In a bowl add honey, warm water and sprinkle yeast and let it stand for about 10min OR until frosty
  •          In the large bowl swift in the Whole wheat flour, Milk powder, Garlic powder, Semolina,  Salt, Olive oil  and add  the yeast mixture; Mix until the dough come together
  •          Bring the dough on the floured surface and knead until the dough becomes smooth (about 10min)
  •          Place the dough in an oiled greased bowl to coat the surface; Cover the dough with thin cloth OR Cling film and let it stand in the warm place for about 1 – 2hours
  •          Divide the dough into 2 equal parts
  •          Pre–heat the oven at 220 deg with the greased pizza tray
  •          Meanwhile knead the dough again for about 4-5min on the floured surface and spread the dough on the parchment paper/foil
  •          Once the oven is pre-heated take out the tray and shift the rolled dough on to the tray, brush some olive oil on to the base and put it in the oven at 220 deg and let it rise for 8-10min before spreading sauce and toppings (This step is optional but this made pizza cook even on crust and base)
  •          Then spread the sauce on and add your favourite toppings
  •          Bake it for 10-12min on 220deg

Note:

  •          For healthy option I used whole wheat flour, you can replace it with white flour or can add half wheat and half white flour
  •          Can use any cheese of your choice (Prefer reduced fat)
  •          I added semolina just for the crispiness
  •          Dust some corn meal/flour on to the tray after greasing with oil to get the brownish pizza base
  •          I used homemade pizza sauce, you can also buy from store
  •          You can use Sugar instead of honey to the yeast
