No its not delivery

Micah and I love pizza!! Its such a great nutritious food when you choose great nutritious toppings. Since becoming friends with the amazing Pizza artist Harry (who sells his pizza every Saturday morning at the Moncton Market) we have stepped away from our old classic standard pizza ingredients of all meat and little veggies and have learned to be come creative when inventing pizza.




I found this great recipe for homemade pizza dough and thought I should share since its soooo yummy. This pizza crust will make a big pizza that can be cut into 12 pieces. Once slice of this crust gives you 127 kcal and 2.7 grams of fat. It also provides you with 2.3 g of fiber!!

Ingredients

1 cup water
1/2 tsp sugar
2 1/4 tsp yeast
2 Tbsp Vegetable oil
1 Tbsp Honey
1 1/2 cup Flour
1 cup Whole wheat flour
1 tbsp Basil
1 tbsp Oregano







1. Dissolve sugar in water and add yeast. Let stand 5-10 minutes
2. Add oil, honey, flour, basil and oregano. (sometimes I throw in some natural bran and flax seeds).
3. Mix all together and then kneed for 5 minutes or until dough is a nice elastic constancy.
4. Let stand covered for 10-15 minutes
5. Roll dough out. I have found that its easier to roll out the dough with a rolling pin...it makes a bigger pizza.
6. Bake dough for about 10 minutes first before adding an ingredients.

Once the dough is cooked a little bit add your sauce and toppings. and cook for 10 to 12 minutes!

The sky is the limit with pizza here are some toppings to try:

Chicken, salsa (instead of tomato sauce) lots of veggies
Chicken, BBQ sauce (instead of tomato sauce)
Ground Pork
Tomatoes, basil and feta cheese
Ham chunks with pineapple
Black beans with coconut
Steak and BBQ sauce
Spinach, tomatoes and feta cheese
Everything pizza....
