- 2 cups / 310 g sprouted whole grain (SWG) flour
- ½ cup / 120 ml hot water
- 2 tsp. / 8 g active dry yeast
- 1 Tbsp. / 14 ml olive oil
- ½ tsp. / 3 g salt
- 15 oz / 450 ml tomato sauce
- ½ cup / 100 g onion, chopped
- 1 clove fresh garlic, minced
- 1 tsp. / 1 g dried oregano
- 1 tsp. / 1 g dried basil
- 2 cups / 200 g vegetables (zucchini, yellow squash, crimini mushrooms, fresh spinach), sliced
- 6 oz. / 170 g part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 5 oz / 145 g breakfast sausage, preferably uncured (optional)
- 2 oz / 57 g Black Forest ham, preferably uncured (optional)
- Preheat oven to 400°F / 200°C. Crust
- Combine flour and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
- Add yeast to water and stir until yeast dissolves.
- Add olive oil to yeast.
- Pour the yeast and oil mix into the flour. Stir until large clumps form. If flour seems to dry.
- Add small amounts of water until the flour sticks together but does not stick to your hands.
- If dough becomes too wet, add a little more flour. Knead the dough on your counter about 6 times till it is a dough ball.
- Clean the bowl and pat dry. Grease it with half of the olive oil. Return dough to bowl and let rest in a warm place for 25-30 minutes covered with plastic wrap.
- Meanwhile prepare your pizza pan or stone by misting or brushing with the remaining olive oil. The dough amount should be larger (not necessarily double in size) due to the yeast working.
- Place dough onto the center of your pizza pan. With your hands, press dough to cover the pan, working from the center out. I leave the dough thick at the edges. Sauce
- Combine all of the sauce ingredients and cook for 15 minutes at a low simmer.
- Spread sauce on crust to thick edges. Top the sauce with the vegetable toppings and finally the cheese. If desired, slice or chop meats and distribute over the cheese.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Watch for cheese in the middle to begin to turn light brown.

Hi, MsPiggy. Perhaps try reducing the screensize (zoom to less than 100%).
SWG flour can also be ordered from Nuts.com. They have some wonderful products!
What is SWG?
Hi, Pat. “SWG” stands for “sprouted whole grain.” You can read more about it here: https://www.trimdownclub.com/what-is-swg-bread.
Hi would it work if I left the yeast out?
Hi, Annemarie. Yes, but it will result in a somewhat thinner, denser crust.
hi I’m new, can I replace lunch meal with pizza recipe?
Hi, Jeanne. Definitely! You can have up to 2 portions of the pizza (1/6 of the wh ole), plus a vegetable serving (e.g., salad).
Is there any healthy crust you can buy to save time?
Yes – most that are “organic” are fine, such as Whole Foods Market 365 brand.
