    Flax Walnut Wheat Pizza Crust


    • 2 cups whole wheat flour
    • 2 Tbsp vital wheat gluten
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • 1 packet yeast
    • 1 tsp sugar
    • 1 cup warm water
    • 1/3 cup raw walnuts + 1/4 cup nutritional yeast + 2 tsp flax seeds (pulsed into meal = vegan Parm)
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 2 tsp olive oil
    • 1/2 tsp red chili flakes (optional)


    1. Start the dough about an hour before you want to serve pizzas. Allow the dough to rise for about 45 minutes.
    2. Combine the yeast, warm water and sugar in a small bowl. Stir. Let sit for about five minutes.
    3. In a separate large bowl combine all the dry ingredients (flour, vwg, baking powder, walnut mixture, salt). Note: For the walnut mixture, you will want to pulse the walnuts, flax seeds and nutritional yeast in a Vitamix until a meal/powder forms. Salt to taste. This recipe makes vegan Parmesan cheese. 
    4. Add in the olive oil and red pepper flakes.
    5. Fold the water into all the remaining ingredients in the large bowl. Add in additional flour as needed to get a knead-able texture – not too wet and not too dry. Knead into a ball for a few minutes. Keep dough in mixing bowl and cover with towel. Allow dough to rise for at least a half hour – about an hour is ideal.
    6. When the dough has risen .. Heat your oven to 415 degrees.
    7. Roll out your dough – roll out one pie or split into two balls for two mini pizzas.
    8. Add sauce, herbs, cheese and any additional topics you prefer.
    9. Bake for about 13-18 minutes for mini pizzas depending on crust thickness and how crispy you like it.
