The whole family will love this made from scratch pizza.  Easy and much more nutritious than the store bought stuff!

Make it a meal with 2 slices and a salad!

Makes 10 Slices

Crust:

¾ cup Whole Wheat Flour

¾ cup AP Flour

1 package Fast Acting Yeast

¼ tsp Salt

¼ tsp Sugar

2/3 cup Hot Water

2 tsp Olive Oil

Sauce:

3 oz Tomato Paste

4 oz Tomato Sauce

½ tsp Sugar

¼ tsp Salt

¼ tsp Black Pepper

½ tsp Oregano

½ tsp Garlic Powder

1 Tbsp Olive Oil

Toppings:

6 oz Canadian Bacon, chopped

¼ cup Bell Peppers, chopped

¼ cup Onion, chopped

1 cup Mozzarella Cheese

¼ cup Parmesan Cheese

Directions: In a large mixing bowl mix the whole wheat flour, AP flour, salt, and sugar, and yeast.  Add hot water and olive oil.  Stir well.  Knead dough for about 3-4 minutes.  Cover to let rise for 10 minutes.

While the dough is rising prepare your sauce and toppings.  In a small bowl add together all ingredients for sauce and stir well.  If you haven’t already done so, chop your toppings.

Roll out the pizza dough to fit a large baking tray (11” x 14”).  Spread with the sauce.  Top with Canadian bacon, peppers, onion, and cheese.

Bake at 425 F for 15-17 minutes or until cheese is melted in the middle and crust is slightly brown.

You can also use gluten-free flour as a substitute for the whole wheat and AP flours.

Other low Calorie toppings may include:

Chopped garlic, tomatoes, mushrooms, olives, artichokes, and fresh basil.

Other protein toppings may include (to substitute for Canadian bacon):

Pepperoni, cooked ground beef, grilled chicken.
