thanks to my friend jessica for the delicious dough recipe (with a few changes of my own...):
1 tablespoon quick rise yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup very warm water (as hot as you can get it from your tap)
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups white flour
a little bit less than 2 cups whole wheat flour
a teaspoon or so of olive oil (or none if you prefer)
1. combine yeast, sugar and water in large bowl. stir until it starts to bubble.
2. add salt and flour (and oil if you wish). knead just until combined.
3. cover and let rise - minimum 1 hour, but it's better if you let it rise for 2 hours.
4. roll out dough. top with desired toppings. cook in oven at 400 for 10-15 minutes.
makes crusts for 2 pizzas (i make them on large cookie sheets)
pizzas i love:
chicken pesto (see picture): pesto sauce, mozzerella, parmesan, chicken, olives, tomatoes
bbq chicken: 1/2 bbq sauce and 1/2 low fat ranch for the sauce, mozzerella, parmesan, chicken, green peppers, olives, tomatoes
tomato basil: your favorite pasta/pizza sauce, mozzerella, parmesan, tomatoes, spinach, dried basil
