Homemade Whole Wheat Fat Free Bread and Vegan Pizza Recipes

Have you ever had a piece of bread so good that you wanted MORE?! Well, if I have one weakness when it comes to food, homemade bread is IT… that’s the reason I try not to make it too often.  But when I do it has to be PERFECT! Of course I am not tooting my own horn, but my bread will rock your socks off 😉 and have you asking for more–it is whole wheat, fat free, and, if you grind your own flour, like I do with my super power Vitamix 5200, can be whole grain.  It is perfect for any soup, salad, to make delicious sandwiches with, or just have with homemade, sugar free jam with tea.

Salivating yet?!

Well, I am ready to share my secret (no so secret really ;)) recipe.

Homemade Whole Wheat Fat Free Bread & Pizza Recipes

(I added rolled oats and sunflower seeds to this loaf)

Oven Bread Recipe

as provided by a very talented niece of mine–Anna 😉

  • 4 cups warm water
  • 1 tbsp yeast (you can add an extra tsp for whole wheat)
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp honey or sugar (optional)
  • 8 cups unbleached flour (use whole wheat as much as possible)

Preparation

  • Combine 4 cups of warm water and 1 tbsp of yeast and let stand for 5 min
  • Add the rest of the the ingredients, mix well cover with towel and let rise for 2 hours
  • Oil hands and split dough in 3 balls
  • Put in glass bread baking shells and let rise for 2 more hours
  • Preheat oven to 375 and carefully place dough in the oven for 30 min, or until bread is a golden color

Enjoy!

Vegan Pizza Recipe

Dough

  • To make pizza from Bread Machine recipe use the same exact recipe, reduce water volume to 1.5-1.75 cup, but prepare it on the DOUGH cycle, then follow steps below.
  • To make it from Oven recipe: scale it down a bit (about 3-4 times ;)) so you don’t feed an army, then, when dough is raised and ready for baking, as per instructions above, then follow steps below.

Preparation

  • When ready, divide dough into two parts; roll out into circles, or stretch with hands, very lightly gresing your hands with olive/coconut oil
  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • Lay out dough on baking sheets
  • Spread pizza/spaghetti sauce on top
  • I like using Dayia cheese (mozarella style)–spread cheese over the sauce–you don’t need to use too much, otherwise the sauce and cheese will run
  • Possible toppings: pineapple, thinly sliced apple, bell peppers, red onions, tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms, and anything else you can imagine
  • Bake 5-7 mins on the bottom rack, and ~5 mins top shelf, or until golden brown on the bottom
  • For the last 30-40 secs, keep pizza on top rack, turn oven to broil to get “cheese” bubbling, but watch not to burn the crust.

Go ahead and lick your fingers clean ;).

    Hi Elena,

    I’ve tried this recipe on a smaller scale by cutting it in half (followed your directions from one of your comments). I’ve tried it 3 times and each time the bread was really dense. The texture was not airy and i had to chew it a lot longer before swallowing. The other issue was the crust got quite hard. I’m using only whole wheat flour. For 4 cups of flour I used 2.5 tsps of yeast. Should I be using more?

    Thanks!
    Devi.

    • Devi, which of the recipes are you using? If you are using all wheat flour 2.5 tsp of yeast should be plenty. Are you scaling down the recipe proportionally? Are you using a bread machine?

    Hi Elena, do you have a gluten free version of this?
    Also, have you ever tried making gluten free unleavened bread? I would love to see how you go. I’ll admit I’m hopeless when it comes to baking so a recipe would be great.

  • Sona Karia

    I love the sound of this recipe! Although I’m making this only for myself so can you please tell me the proportions for a oven baked bread (example 3 cups of whole wheat flour)? Thank you.

    • you mean for a smaller portion? I would simply cut it in half:

      2 cups warm water

      .5 tbsp (you can add an extra tsp for whole wheat)

      1 tsp sea salt

      .5 tbsp honey or sugar (optional)

      4 cups unbleached flour (use whole wheat as much as possible)

      Does that work?

  • Devi

    Hey Elena,
    I was planning on baking this bread. In the whole wheat bread recipe (oven version), you mentioned putting the dough in glass bread baking shells. Is this just the bread loaf pan that you’d normally use to bake? Or is it something else? (Sorry if it’s a dumb question, I’m new to baking 🙂 )
    Cheers,
    Devi.

    • yes, it can be, or any oven proof glass dish 😉

  • Rachelle Marsden

    Hi Elena! We are making the bread right now, oven version, (just started the first rising process) and are wondering when you said to make three balls later on in the recipe, does that mean we are making three loaves? I hope my question makes sense. 🙂 We’re excited, we haven’t had homemade bread in MUCH to long!

    • Rachelle, yes three loaves, or you can split into two 🙂

  • I was just wondering if the salt is necessary, can it be left out or lowered?
