• • • •

1/2 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons fine cornmeal All-purpose flour for dusting


1/2 cup prepared marinara sauce -1/3 cup mini pepperoni slices, or can substitute with 12 oz. cooked chopped chicken 1 red bell pepper, chopped finely -1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese-1/4 cup parmesan cheese -1/4 cup black olives, chopped -1/2 cup chopped mushrooms, chopped -1/4 cup basil, chopped

DIRECTIONS: 1. To prepare dough: Stir water, yeast and sugar in a large bowl; let stand until the yeast has dissolved, about 5 minutes. Stir in whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour and salt until the dough begins to come together. 2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. (Alternatively, mix the dough in a food processor or in a stand mixer with a dough hook. Process or mix until it forms a ball. Continue to process until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 1 minute more in a food processor or 3 to 4 minutes more on low speed in a stand mixer.) Place the dough in an oiled bowl and turn to coat the dough with oil to prevent sticking. 3. Cover with a clean kitchen towel; set aside in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour. Set your bowl of dough in your turned off oven to avoid excess moisture and help it rise. 4. Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 450°F. Brush oil over a large baking sheet. Sprinkle the baking sheet with cornmeal to coat evenly. Sprinkle flour over work surface. Roll out the dough to the size of the baking sheet and transfer to the baking sheet. Cover the dough with sauce. Assemble and add all of your desired toppings and cheese. Bake until the crust is crispy and the cheese is melted and starting to brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Top off with some crushed chili peppers and fresh chopped basil for garnish. Enjoy!
