Sprouted Grain Pizza and Calzone Dough

When it’s football season, whether you love watching the game or not, you’re bound to be around someone who does and wind up at a game watch or tailgate. Chances are, at those functions, you’ll be running into some beer, and what goes better with beer than pizza? Confession: I prefer red wine with pizza, but I bet some of you might choose a calzone over a pizza if it was easy to make. Your kids might think it’s pretty fun and yummy, too.

What if I told you it was easier than you think? I introduce the dough that makes the perfect personal pizza and calzones…and dessert pizza. One dough to make everyone happy! Continue reading
