Garlic and Herb Pizza crust

Another cloudy day, its a perfect day to just do nothing and relax….well that’s what normal people would do, I decided to go for an hour long walk around my neighborhood.  It was really refreshing and I got to see some beautiful flowers and monkeys. I took some pictures along the way.

Here you have a monkey just about posing for this pic 🙂


Pretty little flowers that smell so good


And some street art 🙂 to brighten up everyone’s day. 


I’m dying to share this recipe with everyone so enough diddle daddling.  I know the blog world is filled with pizza crust recipes, but this one is a must try.  Its a nice thick crust with a burst of flavor that will make any topping even more delicious.

GARLIC AND HERB PIZZA CRUST – 2 large pizza’s 



  • 3 cups Wholewheat flour
  • 1 Package instant yeast
  • 1 cup Luke warm water
  • 1/2 tsp Maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  •  1 tsp each basil, marjoram and oregano
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder


In a bowl combine yeast, maple syrup and water and let sit for 10 minutes or until frothy.

In a separate bowl combine flour, salt, oregano, basil, marjoram, garlic powder and onion powder.  When the yeast is ready add in the olive oil and stir. Mix the yeast mixture in with the flour and mix well until dough forms, if the dough is to dry add a tbsp of water if its wet at more flour.  Knead the dough for 5 minutes. Place the dough into a well oiled bowl and cover with a dishtowel.  Let the dough rise for 30 minutes. Punch down the dough and form  2 balls, let the dough relax for a minute before rolling them out.


Preheat oven to 356F ( I didn’t pre bake the dough I just placed all my topping on and it came out fine)

Place your toppings on the dough and bake for 30 minutes.


Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
