Pizza Pie!

July 30, 2011

I love making homemade pizza. You can choose all of the (healthy) ingredients that go into the pizza, for a fraction of the cost, and it’s really easy!

Easy Breezy Pizza Dough (Recipe makes 2 pies)

  • 3 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar (you can use regular sugar or honey as well)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Thyme and rosemary (optional- we picked them out of the garden)

1) Put warm water in a bowl and add yeast, stir to dissolve, and let sit for 5 minutes.

2) In a different, large bowl, combine flour, salt, sugar, and chopped thyme and rosemary.

3) Add dissolved yeast, water, and oil to the large bowl of flour, combine ingredients.

4) Put the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead for at least 3 minutes.

5) Lightly oil a bowl and put the dough inside. Cover with plastic wrap, set aside.

6) Let the dough rise for at least one hour.

The next part to pizza making is where your artistry comes in- choose vegetables (or meats) to top your pizza and dice them up. Tonight we used onions, garlic, bell peppers, zucchini, basil, and fresh spinach.

– Take out half of the dough, flatten it into a pie shape, and put it onto an oiled or cornmealed pizza pan. We use cornmeal on top of the pan and it works really well, I like cutting back on the oil use here.

– Cover the pie with tomato sauce, sprinkle your veggies around, and top with shredded mozzarella.

– Bake for about 25 minutes at 425, and voila!

Then share with friends and enjoy!
