Water Kefir

Vegetarian wholegrain pizza with water kefir – Life can be so easy

I greet you 🙂

we were in my favorite pizza place last week. Don´t betray it, but apart from salad I like to eat pizza for my life …

When I go out to dinner with my family, I always come back with new ideas and inspirations. So this week pizza was on the menu again – but made by myself. I like to use (also self ground) whole grain flour and regional organic products from the market. You are welcome to exchange one or the other ingredient yourself. What I would not do without is the elderberry jam. It gives the pizza a special something in addition to your own water kefir ferment ….

For this very simple water kefir recipe you need these ingredients:

Ingredients for the dough:

  • 500 g wholemeal flour
  • ½ teaspoon Himalaya stone salt* (You can simply order your stone salt here*)
  • 30 g of fresh yeast
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 250 ml of your own organic water kefir* (you can order the starter complete set here*)

Ingredients for the tomato sauce:

  • 1 tsp elderberry jam

  • 100 g of tomato paste
