Healthy Whole Wheat Pizza

Whole Wheat Pizza

2 balls basic pizza dough
( 8 balls for mini pizzas)

1 cup prepared tomato sauce
1 bag of baby spinach
1 garlic-finely chopped
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup roasted red peppers strips
1 cup cooked diced chicken
1 cup low fat mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Heat the oil in a pan and saute the spinach with the garlic and a spoonful or 2 of water until wilted. Prepare your pizza dough, after the first rising by rolling it into a 12 inch circle and laying it across a pizza pan or stone prepared by lightly oiling or sprinkling with corn meal. Spoon and spread the sauce over the pizza crust and add your toppings.Starting with the spinach and finishing with the cheese. Bake for 25- 30 minutes or until puffy and golden. You can substitute your favorite toppings. I did a veggie pizza for this one but you can do a meat lovers or just cheese yum~ or chicken and spinach is good. Enjoy~

Dough Recipe~
2 pkg dry active yeast
2 cups warm water- 98.6 degrees
3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3 1/2 cups bread flour
1 tsp salt
2 Tlbsp Olive oil
I use my bread maker's dough cycle to do this dough for times sake or you can do it the old fashion way which is a good thing to.

I made my own sauce but you can use the premade~

My Pizza Sauce recipe~

2 small cans of tomato sauce
2 tsp Italian seasoning
2 tsp garlic salt
2 tsp garlic powder
Mix well in a small mixing bowl. You can alter these spices to your your own taste. I love garlic!

I hope you enjoy this recipe. I have been doing these pizzas for several years and my family and I love this recipe, I hope you will to. From Lisa's Kitchen to Yours. Enjoy ~
