whole wheat lovin

I have had a few requests to pass along a few favorite recipes:

Whole Wheat Pizza

2-¾ whole-wheat flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1-teaspoon salt
1 packet of yeast

Dissolve packet of yeast into 1-cup warm water with ¼ teaspoon sugar, let sit for 7 minutes (or until risen)
Mix flour, olive oil and yeast mixture with dough hook. For about 5 minutes.
Place in oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap in warm spot for about 1 hour (or desired risen state)
Roll out and add toppings. Cook for 17-18 minutes on 475 (those are my oven settings anyway)
I usually make 2 rectangle (cookie sheet) pizzas.

Favorite toppings:
Zucchini, corn and fresh mozzarella

Whole Wheat Waffles

1 ¾ cup whole wheat
1-tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup honey
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 large eggs
2 cups milk (I use soy milk and it works fine)

Mix together.
