When our children were younger, I made this tasty, from-scratch pizza for their birthday parties. Everyone loved it so much there was never any left over. It has a thick, chewy crust plus hearty toppings.

Ingredients

  • CRUST:
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1-1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-3/4 to 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • TOPPINGS:
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pizza sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup sliced ripe olives
  • 1/2 pound bulk Italian sausage, cooked and drained
  • 4 ounces Canadian bacon, chopped
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water; add oil. Combine the whole wheat flour, sugar and salt; add to yeast mixture and stir until smooth. Stir in enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl; turn once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Punch dough down. Pat dough onto the bottom and 1 in. up the sides of a greased 14-in. pizza pan.
  4. Combine pizza sauce and sugar; spread over crust. Sprinkle with mushrooms, onion and olives. Layer with sausage, Canadian bacon and cheese. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden and cheese is melted.
