Two-Meat Pizza with Wheat Crust Recipe

When our children were younger, I made this tasty, from-scratch pizza for their birthday parties. Everyone loved it so much there was never any left over. It has a thick, chewy crust plus hearty toppings.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • CRUST:
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-3/4 to 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup sliced ripe olives
  • 1/2 pound bulk Italian sausage, cooked and drained
  • 4 ounces Canadian bacon, chopped
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

"I often make this crust. I divide the dough between two crust because it is very thick. But I like being able to have a good whole wheat crust pizza. I also like to make my own pizza sauce which I use another ToH recipe."

"DELICIOUS! Be sure middle of pizza gets baked all the way through (had to bake more than 30 minutes)."
