oh jessica and other pizza loving friends…

no more pre-made dough from the store. This recipe in the back of my “eat healthy for $50 a week” by Rhonda Barfield is easy and fast. and the sauce recipe is a cinch too. I seriously put it all together in about 15 minutes.

Dough:

Combine in a small bowl:

  • 1 cup hot (not too hot) water
  • 2 teaspoons yeast or 2 packages (get some from the bulk foods section!)

Mix thoroughly and set aside. In a larger bowl, combine:

  • 2.5 C white four
  • 1.5 C whole wheat flour
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 egg whites

Add yeast mixture to flour mixture. Stir together until completely blended. Knead by hand for two minutes, adding flour as needed. Cover bowl with clean dishcloth and set in a warm place. Let rise until doubled in size, about 2-3 hours. divide dough into two mounds. Add enough flour to take the stickiness out of each mound, working flour into each mound. Roll out each mound for two pizzas onto pans sprayed with non-stick spray and some flour sprinkled over it.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Sauce:

  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • honey or sugar to taste

Divide the sauce between the two pizzas, layer with toppings and shredded mozzarella. Bake for 12-20 minutes, depending on thickness of your crust.

    I’ll print it out, but I won’t make any promises. I have that whole absentee husband thing going on over here, which makes it really hard to actually make things that contain more than three ingredients! You rule.
