My from-scratch pizza has a whole wheat crust flavored with beer. Top it with spinach, artichoke hearts and tomatoes, then add chicken or ham and fresh basil if you want to include meat. —Raymonde Bourgeois, Swastika, Ontario

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon each dried basil, oregano and parsley flakes
  • 3/4 cup beer or nonalcoholic beer
  • TOPPINGS:
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 can (14 ounces) water-packed quartered artichoke hearts, drained and coarsely chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°. In a large bowl, whisk 1-1/2 cups flour, baking powder, salt and dried herbs until blended. Add beer, stirring just until moistened.
Turn dough onto a well-floured surface; knead gently 6-8 times, adding additional flour if needed. Press dough to fit a greased 12-in. pizza pan. Pinch edge to form a rim. Bake 8 minutes or until edge is lightly browned.
Mix oil and garlic; spread over crust. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese; layer with spinach, artichoke hearts and tomatoes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 8-10 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with fresh basil. Yield: 6 slices.

"This was a perfect alternative to regular pizza for dinner! My family loved it and with the spinach and artichoke element, I could pretend it was a bit more "healthy" - which is always great!"

"My husband and I LOVED this pizza!!! I added two pieces of crumbled bacon to the pizza and a sprinkling of feta cheese - amazing!!!! I actually used a pre-bought pizza crust to save on time. I've already shared this recipe with several friends - it was just that good!"

"My husband and I both loved this recipe. I should clarify that I used a different homemade pizza dough recipe. The only thing this pizza needed was a little salt and pepper, so the second time I made it, I added it after brushing the crust with olive oil."

"This was pretty good--added diced chicken and olives. Seemed a little "Blah" to some family members when compared to pizza from a pizza joint."
