Wheat oat bran (Oil free) Pizza

Zero oil Wheat flour and Oats Pizza

About:

This pizza dough is oil free. A healthy whole wheat, Oats and Bran crust that comes out soft and chewy on the inside and crisp on the outside. In oil free version I used milk instead of oil in the dough and for brushing which helped for the soft dough and golden crust.

I topped it with onion, bell peppers , tofu with sundried pesto however feel free to try out with your favourite toppings and sauce.

Health benefits of multigrain:

First of all, multigrain is just what it means. More than one grain is used in the baking process

Multigrain foods will be high in complex carbohydrates and protein. Complex carbs are great for energy production, and this can help with exercise and losing weight. In addition, they will contain nutrients, fiber and essential minerals like magnesium, copper and iron. Multigrains that contain whole grains will be filled with essential fatty acids, B-vitamins, starch and fiber.

Yields: 2 servings (1medium pizza crust)
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Baking time: 20 minutes
Resting time: 2- 21/2hours

Ingredients:

  • Wheat flour-1 1/2
  • Wheat bran-1/4
  • Oats flour/powder-1/2cup
  • warm milk (vegan/any milk)-1cup – 1 1/4cup
  • hot water-1/4cup (110-120deg C)
  • Salt-1/4tsp
  • Active dry yeast-2tsp
  • Honey-1tsp

For topping:

  • Sliced onion-1medium
  • Thinly sliced bell peppers-1/2
  • Sun-dried pesto-to spread (Recipe link)
  • Firm tofu slices- as required for topping (drained and removed the moisture)
  • Dried herbs-1/2tsp
  • Milk (dairy or non-dairy milk)-1-2tbsp

Procedure:

  • Place honey, salt, hot water in a bowl mix well -sprinkle yeast and allow it to rest for 10-15minutes/until frothy.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine wheat flour, powdered oats, bran flakes mix well and add in the frothy yeast mixture and start mixing and then add warm milk little at a time until comes together.
  • Bring the dough onto the floured surface and knead gradually by sprinkling some milk/water if its dry/ dry flour when sticky alternatively and knead for 5-7minutes.
  • (be careful not to make the dough too stiff or it will be hard to roll out)
  • Then transfer the dough into a bowl (grease the bowl with oil if desired) cover with kitchen towel and let it rise in a warm place for about 35minutes or until doubled in size.
  • Pre-heat the oven at 220deg C.
  • When the dough is risen, punch it down shape into a ball .
  • place the dough for pizza onto the parchment lined baking sheet and spread it out using wet hands until about 1/4inch thick.
  • Brush some milk on the base , spread pesto, onion, bell pepper , tofu sprinkle herbs and bake it for 12-15minutes/until golden brown and little crispy.
  • For pizza with oil is used the same dough and toppings but brushed the base with oil and drizzled some oil on but I didn’t find any much difference however veggies and taste can be personalised as per the taste.

Italian meal plan

Note:

  • Water and milk consistency may vary a bit depending on the flour.
  • In oil free pizza the crust turned out crispy and soft in the centre but make sure to use milk in the dough and for brushing to retain the golden crust and soft texture.
