Ingredients

    Crust:

    2 cups whole wheat flour
    1 cup white flour
    1 package active dry yeast
    1 cup warm water
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons olive oil

    Toppings:
    2 links Hans' Mild Italian Chicken Sausage, diced
    1/4 cup onion, diced
    1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
    1/4 cup green bell pepper, diced
    1/4 cup yellow bell pepper, diced
    1/4 cup sliced black olives
    8oz grated part-skim mozzarella cheese
    1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
    1/4 cup Muir Glen Organic Pizza Sauce

Directions

Start the pizza dough about 2 hours before you intend to serve the pizza. The dough ingredients make enough for two thin pizza crusts, I freeze half of the dough after rising for the next time I make pizza. If you want to use it all and make 2 pizzas, just double the amounts of all the toppings and divide between the two pies.

Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and let stand 5 minutes. Combine the flours and salt in a mixing bowl and add the yeast and water, mixing slowly with your hands. Once the dough has formed, turn out on to a lightly floured board and knead 6-8 minutes. You can also use the dough hook attachment of a mixer to do this.

Use the olive oil to lightly grease a large bowl and put the dough in, turning to coat it with oil. Cover with a clean towel and set it to rise for about 45 minutes or until doubled in size.

When the dough has risen, divide it in half. If you are only making one pizza, pour a little oil in a ziploc freezer bag and put half the dough inside, making sure the inside of the bag is coated in oil. You can then freeze the dough for the next time you want to make pizza--just thaw in the fridge overnight, roll it out, top and bake.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Take half the dough and pat it out into a circle on a lightly floured surface. Roll it out to fit your pizza pan, it should be about 1/4" thick. Place it on the pan (dust the pan with cornmeal lightly first) and add the sauce and toppings, sprinkling the parmesan cheese on top last. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and the toppings are done. Makes 8 large slices of pizza.
