You can use buckwheat for pizza dough, but it will not be anything like an actual wheat flour. Buckwheat isn't actually a grain and doesn't contain gluten. The gluten is what gives pizza dough it's chewy texture (and makes it stretchable when you're tossing the pie). You need to substitute something like xanthum gum to make up for it. If you want to go ...

Buckwheat is more similar to a sunflower seed than grass cereal grains like wheat, but they have similar characteristics. Buckwheat has a hard outer shell (like wheat's chaff), with a starchy endosperm inside. It's the endosperm you need to grind into flour. I'm not certain, but I would guess the wheat you have already has its husk removed and is not the ...

The very best option would be to cook sous vide; that way all of the aroma will stay in the bag. You don't need any special equipment. We don't have a recipe for grains specifically, but there is a good, free intro to cooking sous vide with just ZipLoc bags and a pot on the stove here: https://www.chefsteps.com/classes/sous-vide-cooking/landing#/ If that ...

If you try regular oats and like them, then you might try flaked/rolled barley, if you can find it. If you have refrigeration at work (or just bring in one-day's worth each morning), you could also add wheat germ (I can't imagine having a bowl-ful of it, but adding some to your oats would change them up.) Wheetabix or shredded wheat can also be prepared ...

If you're looking for a traditional pizza dough, no it won't work. However, there's a style of pizza (seems to be centered around Maryland), that uses a biscuit style crust for pizza. If you wanted to make a gluten-free pizza crust, or really wanted to make a buckwheat pizza, that could be a viable route. Buckwheat does impart a different flavor than ...

You can also prepare fine bulgur by just soaking it in boiled water. This website says to let it sit for 20 minutes, but I've done it with less. I wouldn't normally consider it a breakfast food, but if it's variety you crave, maybe you'll like it. Couscous is another option. Most couscous you'll find in grocery stores in the US is an instant variety that ...

Consider also hot instant buckwheat cereal (one possibility from Arrowhead; I thought that Kashi used to have one also but it's not listed here). Must it be instant? If not, you could try... Go for a hands-off microwave-based preparation; boiling water with old-fashioned oats takes 5 minutes at very low power, and steel-cut oats perhaps 15 minutes at very ...

You can prepare semolina by adding boiling water to it. Of course, adding a boiling milk would yield better results, but that is the matter of taste.
