Homemade Healthy Wholemeal Pizza Dough

   I wanted to make pizza pinwheels for my nephew's third birthday - I needn't have bothered, he hardly touched them - but every recipe I found called for premade crust. Well, that's a bit boring, frankly. I might as well spread tomato and cheese on bread. So I had a look about and eventually just mashed up a recipe for healthy wholemeal homemade pizza dough by combining bread and pizza recipes. It worked quite well, I thought. So I'mma share it with you all.

You will need:
200g wholemeal bread flour (or 100g wholemeal & 100g bread flour)
10g caster sugar
pinch of salt
1 tsp of instant yeast
100ml water
2 tsp olive oil

1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
2. Create a "well" in the centre and add the water and oil.
3. Mix it all together using your hands (this is gross to start with) until it forms a soft dough.
4. Move dough to a lightly floured surface and kneed it. Punch the poop out of it.
5. Leave it to one side, in a lightly oiled bowl covering the top in clingfilm.
6. Leave it in a warm place for an hour or so until it doubles in size.
7. Move to lightly floured surface and kneed it until the air comes out then kneed until smooth.
8. Leave dough in clingfilm for 10 minutes before use.

When you're ready to cook it - toppings and such have been added - you want to cook it for about 10-15 minutes at 220 C.
