Whole-wheat pizza is a delicious and healthy substitute to a popular comfort food. This homemade pizza is perfect for days when you feel like cheating on your diet but know better.
1 teaspoon dry yeast
1 cup warm water
3 cups white whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1-1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup no-salt-added pasta or tomato sauce
1 sliced tomato
1 cup sliced fresh spinach
1/4 cup sliced red onion
1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded cheese
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano to taste
1) Mix dry yeast with water then add the rest of the dough ingredients. Mix by hand or with a dough/bread machine until the dough is stretchy (about 3-5 minutes). It should be a little on the wet side but not too sticky.
2) Allow the dough to rise for 30-40 minutes.
3) Preheat oven to 400°F.
4) Place dough on a clean board or counter and roll out to a 10″x15″ rectangle. Place on a cookie tray the same size that has been oiled and dusted with cornmeal. Prick dough with a fork.
5) Pre-bake the crust for 8 minutes.
6) Top the crust with the sauce, tomato, spinach, and onion and then cheese and oregano.
7) Bake the pizza until the dough is golden and the cheese is melted, about 8 more minutes.
8) Cut into 6 squares and serve hot.
You can use 2 cups all-purpose flour and 1 cup whole-wheat flour in place of the white whole-wheat flour.
