I attempted this a few weeks ago and it was a total disaster. THIS time, I got it right and it was delicious!! The dough recipe is from www.eatingwell.com.
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 3/4 cup white flour
- 2 1/4 tsp rapid rise yeast
- 1/4 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1/2 to 2/3 cup of warm water
- 1 cup organic marinara sauce
- 1 1/2 cup 2% mozzarella or provolone cheese
- your choice of veggies (I used red peppers and mushrooms)
- 2 servings of turkey pepperoni slices
Combine the flour, sugar, salt and yeast in a mixer (I love my Kitchenaid!). Combine the water and olive oil in a measuring cup, and gradually add into the flour mixture while the mixer is still running. Once it’s mixed up, remove it from the bowl and kneed into a ball.
Place the ball of dough on a floured surface, sprinkle some flour on top, and place plastic wrap over. Let sit for 10-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat your oven to 500 degrees. Spray a pizza pan with cooking spray or olive oil. Cut your veggies.
Once the oven is heated, roll the dough out. Put your sauce, cheese, veggies and pepperoni on. Put in the oven for about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, slice into 4 large pieces, and put back in the oven for 3-4 more minutes. This makes it pretty crispy, so feel free to cook to your preference :-)
