3 cups whole wheat flour
1.5 tbsp yeast
6 oz. unsweetened apple sauce
1 can low sodium tomatoes
1/2 small can tomato paste
1 clove garlic
1 tsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp ground oregano
2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
shredded vegan mozzarella cheese
(Any other topping you want on your pizza)
Then add 21/2 to 3 cups of flour mixing as you add it. Amount of flour depends on humidity so mix in flour to make a ball until it is not sticky then kneed on a floured board. Let it set for 20 min. Put sauce ingredients in pan and add crushed garlic, stir. Simmer sauce covered while you prepare vegetables for topping. Stir as needed. Spray non-stick pizza pan with olive oil and pat dough into place. Size of pan depends on how thick you like your crust. Put pizza crust in cold oven and set heat to 400 degrees. As the oven heats, it will help the crust rise and begin baking it. Only keep it in for 5 min. Remove crust and cover with sauce and toppings then return to oven and bake for 15-20 min. Check bottom of crust after 15 min. to see if it is done.
