Nutritional Facts

2 slices equals 388 calories, 17 g fat (6 g saturated fat), 48 mg cholesterol, 836 mg sodium, 41 g carbohydrate, 4 g fiber, 20 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 lean meat, 2-1/2 starch, 1-1/2 fat.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, yeast, salt and sugar. Stir in the water, oil and honey; beat just until moistened. Stir in enough remaining whole wheat flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute the onion, 2 teaspoons vinegar, 1 teaspoon syrup, salt and cayenne in oil until onion is tender. Remove from the heat; stir in the sage, mustard and remaining vinegar and syrup.
  4. Grease a 12-in. pizza pan; sprinkle with cornmeal. Roll out dough to fit prepared pan; prick thoroughly with a fork. Bake at 450° for 5-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  5. Arrange the onion mixture, beet greens, apple, sausages and cheese over top. Bake 5-7 minutes longer or until crust is golden and cheese is melted. Yield: 4 servings.
