Veggie Pizza with Herbed Tomato Crust Recipe

I love this recipe because the crust is so flavorful—tomato juice replaces most of the oil. It's one of my kids' favorite meals! —Karen Shipp, San Antonio, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley or 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup tomato juice
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • TOPPINGS:
  • 1 can (8 ounces) pizza sauce
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. In a small saucepan, heat the water, tomato juice and oil to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat until smooth. Stir in enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • 3. Preheat oven to 400°. Punch dough down; roll into a 12-in. circle. Transfer to a 14-in. pizza pan coated with cooking spray; build up edges slightly.
  • 4. Spread with pizza sauce. Top with green pepper, mushrooms, onion, tomato and cheese. Bake 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and edges are lightly browned. Yield: 6 slices.

"Wonderful flavor! My family now requests this crust every time. I use my own favorite toppings, and this crust goes well with them all! Instead of measuring the yeast I just use 1 packet, which seems to work very well."
