Ingredients

    CRUST:
    1 and 1/2 cups white flour
    1 and 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
    1 cup warm water
    1 package yeast
    2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
    salt to taste
    1 cup part-skim mozzarella
    1 cup mushroom slices
    1 cup fresh spinach leaves
    1/2 cup diced red pepper


    SAUCE:
    use your own sauce or:

    1 can whole tomatoes
    spices to taste
    3 garlic cloves
    3 bay leaves
    1 Tbsp. ketchup

    TOPPINGS:
    1 cup part-skim mozzarella
    1 cup mushroom slices (sauteed)
    1 cup fresh spinach leaves (steamed)
    1/2 cup diced red pepper


Directions

The dough is the most time-consuming part of this, so start ahead of time!

Reserve some of the flour to dust your kneading surface (and you may need more)

Combine flour and salt in a large bowl;

Combine warm water and yeast in a second bowl; stir and let sit for a minute. Add oil and stir.

Slowly incorporate liquid into flour mixture.

When dough is formed, flour hands and work surface and knead dough for 6-8 minutes (fold over onto itself and push with the heel of your hand; repeat)

Put dough back in bowl, cover and let sit about 45 minutes, or until approximately doubled in size.

Meanwhile, prepare toppings and sauce (or use canned!)

I like to just throw a can of whole plum tomatoes in a pan with lots of italian spices (fresh if i can find them!). Simmer while the dough rises, watching moisture level. Add ketchup and stir near end of cooking (omit ketchup if cooking for adults! kids like sweeter sauce)

Preheat oven to 425 after dough has risen

Mold and press the dough into pizza shapes (use circular pans or be creative or go sicilian!) and build sides up enough to hold toppings.

Bake unfilled crusts for 10-15 minutes (less if you like a chewier crust). Carefully fill with tomato sauce, cover with cheese and coat with toppings. A sprinkle of cheese over those will help keep them in place.

Bake 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the crust is browned.


(for picky eater kids who will only eat cheese pizza I like to grate some red pepper into the tomato sauce, and even finely dice some of the spinach so it looks like the basil! Simmer while the dough rises, watching moisture level. Add ketchup and stir near end of cooking. Once the cheese is over it, they'll never know!)
