Healthy Pizza Recipe

Want to share a healthy pizza recipe that has no animal products in it. This is a way to enjoy a favorite food of many North Americans without any harm to your weight or health. This recipe is from Danny Vierra’s Vegetarian Cooking School Cookbook.


Sauce
2 cups tomato sauce ( 15 ounce can works )
1 1/2 cups tomato paste ( 2 six ounce or 1 twelve ounce can )
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer over low heat about 15 minutes to blend flavors.


Helpful Hints
Use as a pizza sauce, as a sandwich spread, or as a catsup substitute. Will keep in refrigerator for several weeks.


Crust ( by hand )
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups hot water
2 Tablespoons honey
3 3/4 cups whole wheat flour ( may use 1/2 unbleached flour )
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 Tablespoons olive oil


Mix the yeast and honey in the hot water ( 110 degrees ). Let stand 10 minutes. Stir in salt, oil and flour, 1 cup at a time. Mix well. Knead dough in bowl about 50 times. Let rise 1 hour. Roll out onto pizza pan. Poke holes in crust to let air escape, and prebake 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Top with sauce, soy cheese, and vegetables. Bake 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees.


I made this on Christmas Eve and it was delicious. I had raw broccoli, yellow peppers, white onion, pineapple slices and baby carrots for my toppings over the tomato sauce.

Enjoy and share this delicious pizza and recipe with others. I like eating healthy and my latest blood work shows that I am eating right.
