what you need
  • Dough:
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. active dried yeast
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 cups plain white flour
  • 2 cups stone ground whole wheat flour
  • Sauce:
  • 4 ripe Roma tomatoes (rinsed and patted dry)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Toppings:
  • 1-2 cups FRESH spinach (NO CANNED OR FROZEN SPINACH)
  • 2 cups low fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. shredded Parmesan/Romano cheese
make it
1. Warm a medium mixing bowl by rinsing it with hot water. Dry the bowl and add the yeast. Pour in the warm water and sugar. Stir together and allow to stand for 5-10 minutes or until the yeast has dissolved and started to foam.

2. Use a wooden spoon to mix olive oil, salt, and white flour into the bowl. Mix in half of the whole wheat flour. Stir until the dough forms a mass and begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl.

3. Sprinkle some flour over a smooth work surface. Remove the dough from the bowl and begin kneading it. Work in the remaining flour a little at a time. Knead for 8-10 minutes. By the end the dough should be smooth and elastic. Form it into a ball.

4. Spray a, preferably, glass mixing bowl with non-stick cooking spray. Place the dough in the bowl and cover with a slightly moistened dish towel. Allow to dough to stand in a warm place for roughly 40-50 minutes.

5. While the dough is rising, you can prepare your healthy pizza sauce. Place the tomatoes, garlic, oregano, basil, onion powder, and salt into a food processor or blender. Blend together until you have a liquid. Pour the liquid into a saucepan and allow to simmer on medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes. Stir frequently. Then remove the sauce from the heat and let stand.

6. Preheat your oven to 475 degrees. Once risen, punch the dough down with your fist to release the air. You may want to sprinkle a little flour over the top of the dough before you punch it so that it doesn't stick to your hand. Then knead the dough for 1-2 minutes.

7. Place your dough on a pizza pan or cookie sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Use your hands to form the dough to the pan. Press from the center to the edges. Try not to make the dough thicker than 1/4 inch, but make sure the dough is thicker around the pan's rim for the crust.

8. Pour the sauce over the dough and spread evenly with the back of a large spoon. Then tear up 1/2 of the spinach leaves with your hands and place then over the sauce. Sprinkle the pizza evenly with half of the shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Tear up the remaining spinach leaves and sprinkle them over the cheese and then top with the remaining mozzarella and parmesan cheese.

9. Bake the pizza for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown.

10. Then just slice and serve!
Notes
If you want to make several small pizzas as opposed to one large one, just divide the dough into equal size balls after it has risen and been kneaded. Each individual ball of dough will form a separate pizza crust.

You can also use different veggies for your pizza. Try slicing up some cooked chicken breast and adding that to your pizza for some extra protein. The possibilities are endless!

If you do choose to use spinach, make sure it is FRESH!!! Canned or frozen spinach just doesn't taste as good and has lost some of its vitamins and minerals.

Rated  by megpickersgill on 3/30/2005 This is a great basic pizza recipe. We mixed it up a bit and grilled the pizza dough on one side, flipped it, and added the sauce (great sauce recipe!), cheese, spinach and assorted grilled veggies (we used mushrooms and peppers) The result was crispy and delicious!
