Whole Wheat Pizza + Toppings

Ingredients:

1) Whole Wheat Flour
2) Unbleached Bread Flour
3) Salt
4) Water
5) 6oz. can tomato paste
6) Dry Basil
7) Dry Oregano
8) 1 Whole Lemon
9) Chili Powder
10) Garlic Powder
11) Mozzarella Cheese (1 lb.)
12) Canola cooking oil
13) Dry Active Yeast
14) 1 TBS. Sugar
15) Corn Meal

Utensils: (16 things)

1- 12in (or larger) diameter pizza pan

5- Bowls ( 1 large mixing + 4 medium sized bowls)

1- Pyrex Measuring Cup

1- Cooking Thermometer

1- Small Pot

1- Large Spatula

1- Wooden Spoon

1- Sharp Knife

1- Rolling Pin

1- Saran Wrap

1- Table Spoon

1- Teaspoon

Step 1 - Place 1 TBS. of sugar into a Pyrex Measuring Cup and pour 1/2 cup of hot water into the cup and stir. Wait until the thermometer reads 100 deg F and add the Yeast.

Now wait for about 20 minutes until the Yeast Mixture develops a healthy foam.

Step 2 - Decant Yeast mixture into a large bowl. Measure two cups of whole wheat flour and pour into bowl containing the Yeast mixture. Now add four cups of Unbleached Bread Flour to that same bowl. Now add 2 cups of salt water- 1 tsp per cup. Now stir with the wooden spoon. Continue to add flour until the flour mixture is no longer sticky to your wooden spoon, as you stir the flour mixture. If the flour mixture (dough) does NOT adhere or "stick" to itself, just gradually add tiny drops of water. Once you have one large lump of dough, start to knead it.

Step 3 - Knead the dough for just about 12 minutes continually. Place a small amount of dry flour on a clean surface upon which you're about to knead the dough. As the dough collects more surface flour, you may add either more flour to the surface, or a drop or two of water to the dough (just wet one of your hands and shake it off).

Step 4 - Using a sharp knife, cut dough lump into 4 equal parts and round each of them. Place each ball into a separate bowl that has had its inside surface lightly oiled. Wait for ten minutes and flatten each ball. Next, oil your hands and round each piece of dough once again and place back into the bowl. Cover bowl with plastic Saran wrap and wait for 2 hours. Give the dough time to rise.

Step 5 - Now prepare your sauce and toppings while you wait for the dough to rise.
For the sauce: Add 1 can of tomato paste to 1 cup of water into a small pot. Add 1/4 diced onion, 1 teaspoon of chili powder, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 2 teaspoons of basil, and 2 teaspoons of oregano. Squeeze 1/2 lemon into sauce mixture, just before removing sauce from pot. Do NOT remove sauce from pot until sauce has thickened. It's thick enough if you can stir some on a saucer and you can still see where you stirred the sauce on the saucer. It leaves a streak on the saucer!

Whole Wheat Pizza + Toppings (Continued)

Now preheat the oven to 450 degrees F

Step 6 - Remove Mozzarella Cheese from refrigerator. Dice 2 Spanish Onions and 1 Bell Pepper. Cook 1lb. Pork Sausage with some diced onion. Add 1 teaspoon of Chili Powder. Add 1 teaspoon of garlic powder. Add 2 teaspoons of Basil. Add 2 teaspoons of Oregano. * Add 2 teaspoons of crushed red pepper. Add 1 teaspoon of salt. Remove sausage from pan and allow to cool.

Step 7 - After 2 hours, remove dough from bowl, one at a time. Roll dough out with a rolling pin until evenly flat and completely rounded (or squared). Now, place rolled dough onto pizza pan, after you've lightly spread corn meal onto the pan.

Step 8 - Now generously spread pizza sauce onto pizza dough for your first layer. Next, add the sausage mixture. Over the sausage add the diced onion. Top the onion with the Bell Pepper. Finally, sprinkle the cheese over everything. The cheesier, the better, but don't go crazy!

Step 9 - Place the pizza into the 450 degree F oven for 15 minutes, or until the bottom of the pizza is golden brown. Do NOT let the pizza bottom get dark brown!

Step 10 - Remove pizza from oven and allow it to cool for 5 minutes, then you may taste it!

* Optional

I do a 15 minute dough recipe from the Betty Crocker cookbook that turns out fantastic. This is my version of pizza Margherita.

Here is the recipe from my cookbook.

1 package active dry yeast (I use the rapid rise version)
1 cup warm water (105-115 F)
1 tsp sugar
2 1/4 cups flour (I swap out 1 cup for whole wheat flour)
1 tsp salt
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

Heat oven to 450 F. Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water, let rest for 5-10 minutes for yeast to activate.

Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Add yeast mixture and oil and stir until dough forms and it comes together in a ball. Let rest in a warm place for 10 minutes (I let it sit on top of the preheating oven).

Knead dough a few times until it becomes smooth and elastic, adding flour as needed. Roll out onto pan or pizza stone and add toppings. Bake for 15 minutes.

Geez Oh Man! That's so much faster!

Thanks again, CbadRider!
