Quick and Easy Pizza

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    For the Crust:

    2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
    1/4 cup flax seed meal
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon dry yeast
    3/4-1 cup water
    2 Tbsp olive oil

    For the Sauce:

    8 ounce can of tomato sauce
    1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning OR 1/2 teaspoon basil & 1/4 teaspoon oregano
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon EACH sugar & onion powder
    1 tsp olive oil


    Toppings:

    1 1/2 cups shredded raw mozzarella Cheese
    1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

    *Meat, Extra Cheese, Veggies, Fruit etc. (not calculated)

Directions

First prepare the crust. In a medium sized bowl combine the flour, flax seed meal, baking powder, salt and yeast. Stir it up to distribute the salt and yeast evenly. Add the water and oil. Mix the dough until it forms a big ball in the middle of the bowl. Knead the dough about 10 or 12 times and then form it into a ball. Place the ball in the center of a 16-inch pizza pan, or a 9 by 13-inch rectangular pan. Use your hands and/or a rolling pin, to press the dough into the pan. The dough will be a medium thickness. Allow it to rest while you prepare the Sauce.

In a large cereal bowl combine the tomato sauce, Italian Seasoning (or basil and oregano), garlic powder, sugar, onion powder and oil. Mix it well and spread it on the pizza crust. (If desired, you may substitute canned or prepared Spaghetti Sauce for this sauce).

After spreading the sauce onto the pizza crust, top it with the shredded mozzarella and Parmesan Cheeses. * If desired, add other toppings of your choice. Bake the prepared pizza at 400° for about 15 to 20 minutes. Cut into 8 slices.
