Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Dough:
    1 cup flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    1 large tsp yeast
    cold water (add enough so a ball forms but is not too sticky, usually about 1/2 cup)

    Toppings:
    1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    3/4 cup shredded mozzarella or light cheddar
    1 large bell pepper (any color, I like red)
    6 mushrooms, chopped
    3 medium green onions (chives)
    1 medium tomato
    pepper to taste
    dried oregano

    Other Options:
    handful of spinach
    1 grilled zucchini
    hot peppers
    broccoli

Tips

These are the measurements which I like to use, but feel free to change them slightly to fit your tastes. I enjoy lots and lots of veggies and little cheese, but switch it up! Use whatever you have on hand at home.


Directions

Prepare dough at least 2 hours in advance. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and mix (you can also add a pinch of salt if you want, I do not since I do not like salt). Make a well in the middle of the bowl. Slowly add the water a bit at a time, mixing the dry mixture in. Add water until a ball forms. If sticky, simply add a bit of flour and continue to mix until a small dough ball forms. Cover and place in fridge for minimum 2 hours.

Once ready to cook, flour a counter top and place dough ball on top. The ball should have grown roughly twice in size. Add a bit of flour to a rolling pin and to top of ball. Roll out to the size of a pizza pan. Roll as thin as possible.

Add olive oil and spread equally over the surface of the pizza. Add shredded cheese equally over surface leaving about 1 cm edge all the way around. Add all of the vegetables equally on the surface and add the pepper and the oregano.

Place pizza on middle rack and cook for about 20 minutes at 400 F for a crispy base. Cook at 350 F for 25 minutes for a softer base.

Note: If using spinach or other leafy greens, there are three options: 1-cook them in olive oil until they shrink, then add to the top of the pizza, 2-add beneath the cheese layer or 3-sprinkle with lemon juice and add once pizza is cook and out of oven (my favourite)

Serving Size: Makes 1 large pizza with 4 pieces.

Number of Servings: 4
