1 cup water
3 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp dry active yeast
1 tsp salt
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
1 cup mushrooms, chopped
4-5 artichoke hearts, diced
2 cups spinach
4-6 olives, diced
1/2 cup low fat marinara
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
The easiest way to make this dough is in a bread maker, add the ingredients in the order listed and press the dough function.
If you dont have a bread maker you can use a stand mixer by adding in the dry ingredients, mixing those lightly, then slowly adding in the water. Once mixed attach a dough hook and use the dough setting.
You can also do this by hand, mix the dry ingredients together, slowly add in water and use a non stick spatula to stir as you add it in.
Once all the water is mixed in, take it out of the bowl and kneed by hand on a floured surface for 5 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Once your dough is done, lightly flour a surface and roll out the dough in a long log. Cut into 3 sections and roll each into a ball. Place a little flour on top of the ball and roll out, turning the dough as you roll it. I like to pull on the dough a bit to really stretch it out into a thin crust. Keep rolling until you get the desired thickness. Put your fingertips in the dough to make small cuts with your nails to prevent bubbles.
Add a tiny bit of flour to the bottom of a baking sheet and place your dough on top. Bake the dough by itself for 2 minutes. Then take it out, add your sauce and toppings. Bake again for 15-18 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before cutting into. Enjoy!
