    Until being taken off wheat, I used 00 flour for pizza and pasta. I’m so pleased to find Jovial! I’ve only used the flour for bread so far, but am looking forward to trying pizza.

    Oh my goodness, thanks so much for this recipe! The dough actually rose in my breadmaker the first time on the dough cycle. This is the second recipe I have made something with Einkorn. We really enjoyed it.

    My first of these is now in the oven. I found it to be a very sticky dough and some tips on how to handle would be very much appreciated.
    I ended up putting einkorn flour on the counter and using a wet spatula and wet hands when dividing the dough. Then when I was making the pizza, I put freezer paper on the peel and fine cornmeal on that and used wet hands again.
    The pizza is on the freezer paper still in the over – it wasn’t coming off.

      Linda, we totally understand! This is one of the most common problems when working with einkorn. You may try messing around with the volume of flour as there are many variables that can affect that number. We also have found that there are a couple of tricks to make it easier. First, oil the counter where you are rolling it out. Second, it’s critical that Einkorn dough is not over kneaded. Unlike with other bread doughs, it’s important to stop kneading the minute the consistency is right. I hope this helps.

    I think when giving the measurements of einkorn flour it would be beneficial to give the weight in grams. Then people could get the correct amount into their recipes. For instance, if you have just milled your flour there will be a lot of air and the weight will be very light. Some people buy the high extraction from you and that one is much denser in weight. I learned the hard way with another recipe, but I would also appreciate the weight before I attempt the pizza dough. Thank you .

    This is the best pizza crust ever! I find that cooking it on parchment paper makes a great, crispy
    bottom. It’s easy to slide out of the oven onto a cookie sheet to transport it to the counter to
    cool/cut. It is never soggy for me – which is a minor miracle! Thanks so much
