Vegetable and Goat's Cheese Pizza Recipe

Pizza Crust Ingredients:

1/2 cup warm water
2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. olive oil, plus more for spreading

Pizza Topping Ingredients:

1 Tbs. olive oil
Pinch of sea salt
4 cups tomato sauce
1 head broccoli, cut into small pieces
1 zucchini, diced
1 orange bell pepper, diced
1 onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
Goat cheese, to taste


In a large bowl, mix together the flour and salt. Stir in 1 Tbs. olive oil, and the 1/2 cup of water until combined. Turn the dough out onto a work surface and knead until smooth (about 3 minutes). If the dough is too moist, you may need to add some flour to the work surface.

When you are ready to make the pizza, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Farenheit. Roll out the dough using a rolling pin. You may roll out the entire mound of dough for one pizza, or split the mound into two parts for two smaller pizzas. Place the rolled out dough on a lightly oiled baking sheet or pizza pan and bake for 10 minutes. Take the baked dough out of the oven and let rest while you prepare the toppings.

For the toppings, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the onions, garlic, broccoli, and bell pepper. Saute for 3-5 minutes. Add the zucchini and pinch of salt. Saute for another 2 minutes.

Spread the tomato sauce on the baked pizza dough so that it comes within a 1/2 inch of the edge.

Spread the toppings, plus the goat cheese if desired, on the pizza.

Put the pizza(s) back into the 350 degree Farenheit oven for 5-10 minutes. Serve hot and enjoy this healthy and delicious pizza.

I think the pizza dough will require a levening agent and rising time. Using whole wheat typically requires more yeast/rising time than white flour. Maybe a little something for the yeast to feed on like honey.

4 cups of tomato sauce also sounds excessive, that is 32 ounces or quart of sauce for one pizza, 1/4 or 1/2 a cup sounds more like it.

Other than those two suggestions, looks like an interesting recipe.
