Whole Wheat Pitas

We love pitas. We use them as buns with lamb burgers (tonight’s dinner), make them into wraps or just bake them crisp for dipping. I’m not sure how it works, but these even have the beloved pita pocket! Once you have a homemade pita you won’t want to go back.

1 BCF Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
3 tbsp oil, divided
1 ¼ cup warm water
flour for dusting

Mix the BCF Whole Wheat Pizza Dough, 2 tbsp of oil and water together. Knead the mixture together for 5 minutes. Roll it into a ball, cover in the remaining tablespoon of oil and put it back into the bowl with a tea towel on top. Let it rise for a couple of hours or until doubled in size.

Once the dough is risen preheat the oven to 400°F, punch down the dough and split it into 6 equal balls. Lightly flour your surface and roll out each ball to about a 10 inch diameter. Let them sit for 5-10 minutes before baking. Place up to 2 pitas on a baking sheet and bake for 7 minutes. Once they come out of the oven, cover with tea towel until cooled. 

Whole Wheat Vanilla Cupcakes with Blueberry Buttercream

I wanted to make cupcakes for Levi's 2nd birthday so I tried out a few whole wheat recipes and finally found one that I really like (http://www.ninerbakes.com/2013/05/31/healthy-absolutely-yummy-tasting-vanilla-cupcakes/). I topped them off with a Blueberry Buttercream. He's going to be one happy toddler.

Mar 15 Vanilla Bluberry Cupcakes 178.JPG


1/2 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 cup milk
1 1/4 cups BCF Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
3 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup oil

Blueberry Buttercream

1 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup blueberry jam
2 cups icing sugar

Mix together the vinegar and milk and set aside. In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, whip the eggs. Add in the sugar, vanilla and oil and mix for a minute. Add in the milk mixture and dry ingredients in small batches. Pour batter evenly into a lined muffin tin and bake at 350°F for 18 minutes. Let cool before icing.

To make the icing, whip the butter until soft and fluffy. Add in the vanilla and jam and whip again. Slowly add in the icing sugar and mix on high for 2 minutes. 

Whole Wheat Pizzas

There are endless possibilities with our Whole Wheat Pizza Dough Mix. You can make a more traditional pepperoni and cheese pizza pie or get creative with whatever ingredients are fresh and plentiful. Just about anything tastes great on pizza!

Chicken Pesto Pizza

Swap your traditional tomato sauce for some fresh basil pesto. Top it with a bit of mozzarella, romano and parmesan cheeses. Add grilled chicken, fresh halved cherry tomatoes, chopped spinach and grilled red peppers. Our favourite! 

Better Than Store Bought Frozen Pizza

That's right... who needs store bought frozen pizza when you can do it so much better! Mix your crust as usual. Back the crust alone for about 3 minutes or just until it will hold its shape. Next, top it however you like, wrap and freeze. When you don't feel like making dinner preheat your oven to 400°F and pop your frozen pizza (unwrapped of course) right on the rack. Bake it until the crust is golden and the cheese is deliciously melty.

Dessert Pizza

Some might not know this but Jeff is a sucker for sweets. I make this as a special treat once in a blue moon. Make the dough according to the package and bake until it's golden brown. Once it has cooled, top with cream cheese icing (1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup cream cheese & 2 cups icing sugar) and whatever else you like. We've done strawberry banana, chocolate and caramel and even plain cinnamon.
