Recipe Ingredients for Veggie Pizza w/White Whole Wheat Crust

1 tbsp active dry yeast
1 cup water, warm
3 cups White Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 lb baby spinach
1 cup red bell pepper, diced
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
2 cups zucchini, diced
1 cup tomatoes, diced
1 cup Pasta Sauce Italian Herb, Muir Glen
8 oz. mozzarella, part skim low moisture, grated or shredded
1 c Reduced Fat Feta Traditional Crumbled
2 oz. Parmigiano reggiano, grating cheese
1 tbsp rosemary, fresh, minced
30 g Oil Cured Dry Black Olives, (about 16) pitted and sliced
3 tbsp Olive oil

Recipe Directions for Veggie Pizza w/White Whole Wheat Crust

  1. Add yeast to warm water, proof for 20 minutes. Add 2c of flour (1/2 cup at a time) to yeast mixture. Mix with paddle or dough hook for 5 - 10 minutes.

  2. Add tsp salt and continue mixing on lower speed. Add another 1/2 cup of flour in small amounts until dough is pulling away from sides of bowl. Dough should be moist, loose and pliable with visible gluten strands.

  3. Scrape dough out onto a floured surface, sprinkle with flour to prevent sticking and knead lightly. Pull dough into a ball and place in an oiled bowl. Cover with plastic and allow to rise for 2 hours or until double. (In a hot kitchen, place bowl in fridge for the first hour or so.)

  4. Oil 2 cookie sheets or pizza pans. Turn dough out onto floured surface and divide in 2 pieces. Flatten, stretch and roll each piece into a shape that fits the cookie sheet. Place each dough on a sheet. Cover with a towel and allow to rise for 30 minutes or until puffy.

  5. Preheat oven to 400ºF. While oven heats, slice and dice veggies, grate cheeses. Steam spinach in microwave briefly to wilt.

  6. Toss all veggies (except spinch and olives) and rosemary in a bowl with 1-2 tbsp oil. Spread in an oiled roasting pan, sprinkle with salt and place in the hot oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.

  7. Place pizza crusts in hot oven for 10-15 minutes. Dough should look dry and just beginning to brown at edges. (Crusts can be cooled, wrapped well and frozen at this point.)

  8. Mist 1 crust with olive oil spray, spread 1/2 pasta sauce over the surface. Sprinkle 1/2 feta cheese, top with 1/2 spinach, then 1/2 veggies and olives. Finish with 1/2 mozzarella then 1/2 Parmigiano. Mist crust edges with olive oil and return to hot oven.

  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is bubbling and crust edges are brown. For a crisper bottom crust, slide pizza off sheet onto a pizza stone for 5 more minutes.

  10. Prepare 2nd pizza the same way. Cut each into 12 pieces. 1 serving is 2 slices (WW=6pts).
