Chicken Sausage and Veggie Pizza

My favorite pizza is veggie with gooey cheese and perfect crust. I don’t eat pizza that much but sometime I get a craving for it.

I wanted to try and make my own crust this time using Hodgson Mills Whole Wheat Flour, that I had just bought. There was a pizza crust recipe on the package so I gave it a try.

First I stated with the yeast. I mixed the a package of dry yeast with  1 cup of warm water and let it sit for 5 minutes.

Then I mixed the dry ingredients. I used half whole wheat and half all purpose.

  • 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour

Then I mixed in 2 tsp of olive oil, 1 tsp of salt and the yeast mixture.

I tried not to over mix but it was hard to incorporate all the ingredients.

It turned out like this

Then I let it sit in a warm spot (up in my bedroom) for about 20 minutes. Really it didn’t look that different when I brought it back to the kitchen. I thought i was going to increase in size but I didn’t notice a change.

While the pizza dough was “resting”, I cut up an onion, zucchini and a red pepper and roasted them in the oven with  a drizzle of olive oil.

I also cut up some chicken sausage to add to the pizza.

I rolled the dough out as best I could into a circle.

Then we loaded it up!!!! Of course there was part-skim mozzarella and pizza sauce on there too.

Cooked in the oven until the bottom browned up nicely.

The chicken sausage and roasted veggies added great flavor. The crust was a little dry and didn’t have that much flavor. I’ll have to work on that recipe another time. I could experiment with pizza crust everyday!!
