If you are a diabetic who loves pizza, do not be disheartened. Make your own pizza starting with this healthy crust.
1 to 1 1/2 cups bread flour
1 cup white whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup yellow cornmeal (not cornbread mix!)
1/4 cup flaxseed meal
1 tsp active dry yeast
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees)
In a large bowl combine 1 cup of the bread flour, the whole-wheat flour, cornmeal, yeast, flaxseed meal, and salt. Add the warm water and stir until combined. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining bread flour to make a soft dough that is elastic. This should take about 3 to 5 minutes. Shape the dough into a ball.
Lightly grease a bowl and place the ball of dough into the bowl. Turn ball once to allow top to be greased. Cover dough and let rise in a warm spot for 2 to 3 hours until doubled in size. Punch down the dough.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into two equal portions. Cover and let rest for approximately 10 minutes before using.
Yield: Enough dough for 2 12-inch pizzas.
