WHOLE WHEAT VEGGIE PIZZA

WHOLE WHEAT VEGGIE PIZZA

½ cup whole wheat flour
2 packages (¼ oz each) quick-rise yeast
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp salt
2-½ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup water
2 tbsp olive oil

SAUCE:
1 can (14-½ oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 tbsp minced fresh parsley
1-½ tsp sugar
1-½ tsp Italian seasoning
1-½ tsp dried basil
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp pepper

TOPPINGS:
1 tsp olive oil
1 cup chopped zucchini
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
½ cup chopped green or red pepper
¼ cup chopped onion
1-¼ cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

In a large bowl, mix first 4 ingredients and 1 cup all-purpose flour. In a small saucepan, heat water and oil to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat on medium speed 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.

In a small saucepan, bring sauce ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until slightly thickened, 15-18 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

Preheat oven to 400°. Punch down dough. On a lightly floured surface, divide dough in half and roll each into a 12-in. circle. Place on 2 greased 12-in. pizza pans; prick with a fork. Bake until lightly browned, 8-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute vegetables until zucchini is crisp-tender. Spread crusts with sauce; top with vegetables and cheese. Bake until cheese is melted, 12-15 minutes.
