White Bean Pizza Dough

By March 22, 2011No Comments
As you can tell from past posts, my family LOVES to make homemade pizzas. I am all about a quick Little Ceasers Pizza every now and then, but when I want something homemade and fresh, I love to make homemade pizzas for the family. I know many people shy away from making their own pizza dough, but I want to tell you how easy it is!! It is actually much easier than making bread or rolls. You just mix together the ingredients, let the dough rise for anywhere from 15-60 minutes and then roll out for your pizzas. You don’t have to worry about your dough rising the proper amount of time, because the idea of pizza crust is to have it nice and thin. In fact, looking at my pizza picture, you would hardly know there is crust at all–just how I like it 🙂 Whether you want a thin crust pizza or a pan crust, this recipe is fabulous!!

Now…the best part about this dough is that it has THREE cups of pureed white beans. How cool is that?? I was sent a link from a reader to a website that had a recipe for bean dough, but I think mine is even a little better (in my humble opinion). I also added some bean flour and wheat flour to the dough to make it even more healthy. If you want a traditional all white pizza crust, stick with just the pureed beans–both ways are delicious. The great thing about this dough recipe though, is you get the white and fluffy texture of white dough, with the health benefits of adding beans. Remember..for every ONE cup of beans it gives you 12 grams of fiber, 14 grams protein, and nearly all 9 essential vitamins and minerals your body needs for proper health. Compare that to your bleached all purpose pizza dough! SOOO cool!! Enjoy.
