Homemade Pizza

There's nothing better than homemade pizza! With dough made from whole wheat flour and toppings like fresh cherry tomatoes, spinach, turkey pepperoni and part-skim mozzarella cheese, this delicious pie is good for you, too! Recipe courtesy of Hylton & Kara.


Ingredients
1 cup warm water (100 degrees)
1 pinch sugar
1 package active dry yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp.)
2 tsp. salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp. olive oil
Toppings (cherry tomatoes, shredded mozzarella cheese, turkey pepperoni, spinach, salt & pepper, olive oil)

Directions
Put warm water, sugar and yeast in a bowl in a warm place for 10 minutes.

In another bowl, mix flours and salt. Add water mixture to flour mixture and add oil. Kneed until not sticky. Roll into a ball and put in a bowl coated with oil. Cover with a towel and let stand until dough doubles in size (about an hour).

Kneed dough again and split in half (for 2 pizzas).

Layer (in order):
- sliced cherry tomatoes (Your sauce! You'll need about one container per pizza)
- shredded mozzarella cheese
- turkey pepperoni
- spinach (Pile it on! Spinach is all water and wilts down to almost nothing)
- salt & pepper (to taste)
- drizze of olive oil

Bake in a 500 degree oven (yes, 500 degrees) for 16 to 18 minutes.

Great for date night or entertaining guests! Enjoy :)
