What started out as a pizza dough recipe, turned into breadsticks that we couldn’t leave alone. Crisp & crunchy on the outside, & soft & chewy on the inside – these have been a hit with all of the eaters in our home.
(Adapted from Plant Pure Nation’s Pizza Party).
(Note – I usually double this recipe)
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 ¾ teaspoon Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer (mixed with 1 Tablespoon water)
1 teaspoon sea salt, plus more
3 cups unbleached, white whole wheat flour (you can also use whole wheat flour here too)
1/2 cup cream from coconut milk (refrigerate or lightly freeze coconut milk beforehand so that cream will rise to the top)
- In a mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water & maple syrup. Let stand until frothy.
- Stir in the egg replacer, flour & salt. Knead for 6-8 minutes, until smooth. Add more flour as needed if dough is too sticky to knead.
- Place the dough in a bowl & cover with a damp towl. Set aside in a warm place to rise, until the dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.
- Punch down the dough & allow to double in size again, about 30 minutes.
- During the second rise, preheat the panggangan to 450-500 degrees. Leave your pizza stone in the panggangan during the preheating. Preheat panggangan for 45 minutes!!
- Place coconut cream into a glass dish or ramekin & lightly melt in microwave (10-20 seconds).
- Spoon a bit of the coconut cream onto a large piece of parchment paper, & smear around with hands – covering palms in process.
- Remove dough from mixing bowl, & pat out into a rectangle with hands. Use additional coconut cream to prevent sticking.
- Roll dough out to be ¼ inch thick.
- Using a pizza cutter, cut dough into slices that are 1/2-1 inches wide, & 6-8 inches long. Shape or roll into breadsticks as needed by hand.
- Place close together, but not touching on silpat, parchment paper, or hot pizza stone.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Remove & immediately brush with the remaining melted coconut cream & lightly sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Optional – Sprinkle with garlic powder for a garlicky breadstick
Serve warm – excellent with this Marinara sauce
*Note – this recipe works great for a grilled pizza dough recipe as well.
