Homemade Veggie Pizza

The other day, the wife asked me to make a dish with Kale (because she so enjoyed Eileen’s dish) and I thought… hmm… what could I do that would be unexpected?  Well, I ended up going with Pizza!

Thanks to JT, I started with this dough recipe. For this you’ll need:

3 1/2 cups high gluten flour

1  cup warm water

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast

1 1/2 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

So, you’ll want to mix add the water, oil, yeast, salt, and sugar in a mixer with a dough fitted with dough hook until yeast has fully dissolved. Then add flour and mix on low speed until the flour and water have mixed and a stiff dough ball forms. Place in a bowl and cover… you’ll end up with something like this:

Let the dough rise in the fridge for 24 hours… and you get this…

This will allow you to make 2 twelve inch pizzas.

Toppings were…

Broccoli

Red bell peppers

Green bell peppers

Kale

Spinach

Tomatoes

Red onions

Mushrooms

The sauce consisted of:

28 oz. can pureed tomatoes

2 tsp of sugar

2 diced jalapeños

1/2 clove diced shallot

1 tbsp minced garlic

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon salt

At this point, you’ll want to heat your oven to 500. This will heat up while you toss your puree into a pan over a medium low heat. Make sure to stir in everything and let simmer for about 20 minutes once you are finished, you are ready to roll out your down and top.

I used mozzarella and sharp cheddar.   Tossed it in for 10 minutes….

And it was ready to go…

Some outstanding stuff, easy to make… and above all, healthy!
