Spelt Pizza Dough

Rated as 4.88 out of 5 Stars

"The 'ancient grain' spelt is related to modern wheat, but it's actually an entirely different species. From what I hear, it's easier to digest, higher in protein and fiber, and to me at least, has a much better flavor and texture than other whole-wheat flours. Top with favorite pizza toppings!"

  1. Whisk 1 cup flour, water, honey, and yeast together in a bowl. Let stand until yeast softens and mixture is bubbly, about 20 minutes.
  2. Stir remaining flour, olive oil, and salt into yeast mixture. Beat mixture in a bowl with an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment, adding more flour as necessary, until a soft and tacky dough forms, 3 to 4 minutes. Place dough in mixing bowl with a little olive oil, cover bowl with a plate, and let rise until doubled in size, 90 minutes.
  3. Punch dough down and transfer to a lightly floured work surface. Divide into 4 balls; cover each and let rest until dough rises slightly, 30 to 45 minutes. Roll into desired shapes and thickness.

Just as a tip make sure you are not overzealous with the amount of dough you use for an individual pizza. After the dough rises slightly its a good idea to stretch it out relatively thin so you ...

Turns out amazing baked on a pizza stone at 550!! Restaurant quality amazing!!

This dough came together easily, and baked up nicely. It has a nice flavor, crispy texture with a bit of chew. I followed the advice from the video and heated it in a cast iron pan on the stov...

Great recipe, the crust is thin and crispy, but everything holds together. I use regular spelt flour.

Phenomenal. Followed directions exactly (aside from cooking first in skillet) baked for about 15 min at 475. So easy to make and a really yummy thin crust. Thank you so much for sharing this!

Tasty. But you need to do your research on spelt. It is NOT gluten-free so celiacs and other gluten-related diseases may NOT use this. It is much lower in gluten than bread wheat and has more nu...

Thanks again for a fantastic recipe, Chef John! My son is obsessed with pizza and i've been buying some for him every week. My family has been playing around with spelt flour for pancakes and so...

Just perfect. My new favorite. Actually I never had a favorite spelt pizza crust till now. This one just works.
