Whole Wheat Veggie Pizza Recipe

"A wonderful crust layered with herbed tomato sauce and toppings encourages my family of six to dig right in to this low-fat main course," relates Denise Warner of Red Lodge, Montana.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 50 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) quick-rise yeast
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup warm water (120° to 130°)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • SAUCE:
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup chopped zucchini
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup each chopped onion, green and sweet red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add water and oil; beat until smooth. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring sauce ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15-18 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Divide in half; roll each portion into a 12-in. circle. Transfer to two greased 12-in. pizza pans. Prick dough with a fork. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • 4. In a small skillet, saute vegetables in oil until tender. Spread pizzas with sauce; sprinkle with vegetables and cheese. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Yield: 2 pizzas (6 slices each).

"Try using 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed instead of 1 tablespoon oil. This works great and adds heart-healthy fats."

Reviewed Jun. 29, 2008

"I noticed that this recipe still calls for 2 Tbls. oil, which is quite a lot of fat. Could you use fat free liquid margarine instead? I have used it in making breads in my bread machine, and it works great."
