Chia-Seed Pizza Crust

Notes

This recipe makes one pizza with regular crust, but you could split the dough and make two thin-crust pizzas instead.

Chia-Seed Pizza Crust

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups white whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup chia seeds
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons dried basil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups warm water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, chia seeds, baking powder, salt, basil, and garlic powder.
  3. Pour in the oil and warm water, and use a spoon to mix it together.
  4. Put the mixture on a clean, floured surface, and knead it until a dough forms, about 2 minutes. Use a floured rolling pin to make a large circle.
  5. Spray a pizza pan with cooking spray, and place the dough on the pan. Roll in, and pinch the edges to form a crust.
  6. Cook crust for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the dough looks dry.
  7. Add your favorite toppings, and cook for another 8 to 12 minutes.
