Healthiest home-made Flax Whole Wheat Kale Pizza you'll ever have!
Recipe type: Pizza
Serves: 6-12
Pizza Crust (makes 2 thin pizzas or 1 thick crusted pizza)
  • Active Dry Yeast - 1 package (2+1/4 tsp).
  • Water - 1 cup warm (110 degrees F).
  • Honey - 1 tbsp.
  • Whole Wheat Flour - 1 cup.
  • All Purpose Flour - 1+1/4 cups.
  • Ground Flax Seed Meal - ¼ cup
  • Salt - ½ tsp.
  • Black Pepper - ⅛ tsp.
  • Cornmeal - 2 tbsp.
  • Olive Oil
Toppings (for one pizza)
  • Pizza Sauce - of your choice, to taste.
  • Cheese - 1.5 cups of choice, I used shredded mozzarella.
  • Kale - 1 cup, leaves torn and stems removed.
  • Mushrooms - 1.5 cups, sliced.
  • Tomato - 1 thinly sliced.
  1. In a large bowl, dissolve honey and yeast in warm water and let sit for 10 minutes. Then, gently add flour, flax, salt and pepper into yeast mixture, stir until a soft dough forms.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough until soft and elastic, adding additional flour as needed so dough doesn't stick to hands. 5 minutes.
  3. Return dough to large bowl, coat with olive oil on all sides, cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and place stone in oven.
  5. Heat a bit of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sautee mushrooms until softened, about 3 minutes. Add kale and cook until wilted, another 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  6. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into a 12-inch circle and crimp edges of dough to form a rim/thicker crust. (Dough makes 2 thin pizzas or on thick crusted pizza)
  7. Sprinkle cornmeal on a peel or very thin cookie sheet and place pizza dough on it.
  8. Spread pizza sauce (I made my pizza sauceless).
  9. Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese. Add remaining toppings then sprinkle with remaining cheese on top.
  10. Carefully transfer pizza onto hot pizza stone and bake for 10-15 minutes (depending on crust thickness) or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
