1 Recipe Pizza Dough:
1/2 cup warm spring or filtered water
1 package active dry yeast
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 1/2 cups warm spring or filtered water
2 1/2 cups semolina flour
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
Vegan Italian "Sausage" cut into 8 pieces
Make pizza dough in advance. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand for 5 minutes, until foamy. Stir in oil and salt. Using a wooden spoon, slowly stir in semolina flour. Slowly stir in whole wheat flour to form a soft, moist dough (which makes a crispy crust). Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10-15 minutes to achieve a smooth elastic dough. Add flour as needed for kneading, but not too much or the dough will become dry. Transfer dough to a lightly oiled bowl and oil the surface of the dough to prevent a crust from forming. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and set in a warm place to rise until doubled in size, about 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sautee the "sausage" pieces in avocado oil until brown on all sides. In the meantime, roll out dough into a thin layer. Cut into strips a little bit smaller than the "sausage" pieces. Once sausages are browned roll dough strips around sausages to form the "blanket." Bake for about 15-18 minutes, until the pastry is golden.
