Chef: Jeannie Hudkins
Makes: 3 - 4 servings
Prep time: 40 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes 

INGREDIENTS

Crust

  • 3 c whole wheat flour
  • ½ t salt
  • 1 T sugar (or dehydrated cane juice)
  • 1 T yeast

Toppings

  • ½ - 1 c no-oil marinara sauce
  • 10 oz. spinach (wilted and drained)
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced, and water-sauteed until water is released
  • 1 large tomato, thinly sliced
  • olives, sliced (Optional. If using, pizza will be plant-strong with the added fat.)

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a bowl, place 3c whole wheat flour. 
  2. Add ½ t salt. Mix.
  3. In a separate small bowl, place ½ c warm water. Add the sugar and yeast; stir until
  4. yeast dissolves. Let mixture sit for 5 minutes for bubbles to form, indicating yeast is good. 
  5. Add yeast mixture to flour, mix well. Add another ½ c warm water, and mix with hands to form a stiff dough ball. 
  6. Place a tablespoon of flour on bread board (or work directly on a granite counter, as it keeps the dough from sticking).
  7. Knead 9 - 10 minutes. 
  8. Place dough back into bowl and cover with a plate, foil, or plastic wrap.
  9. Place bowl inside unheated oven and let rise for 1 ½ hours. 
  10. When ready, take bowl out of oven, place on counter, and punch dough ball flat. 
  11. Line a pizza pan with non-stick aluminum foil. Form the dough to fit inside the pizza pan. Flatten dough so it is even and not too thick inside the pizza pan. Let crust extend quite a bit over the edge. (If you have excess dough, simply tear off excess from crust.)
  12. Place toppings on in the following order: marinara sauce, spinach, uncooked red onion, mushrooms, tomato slices, and olives, if using. 
  13. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. 
  14. Enjoy!
