“Kamut is an ancient strain of wheat that some find more easily digestable than typical wheat. It has a higher protein and potassium content than "regular" flour and contains a different type of gluten than that in "regular" flour. It has a nutty, kind of buttery taste and a chewy texture, making it a great choice for pizza dough! This is just a basic recipe- obviously you can top with whatever you'd like. Recipe from”
