This week we are taking a healthy pizza dough base, and adding fresh banana peppers for some veggie awesomeness! This week's veggie focus in partnership with @davisnaturalproduce is sweet peppers/banana peppers! We are making the dough with greek yogurt and other simple ingredients you can feel good about for your family.(this will be a thin crust)
- 1 cup all purpose or white whole wheat flour*, (5 oz ) plus more for dusting
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 cup 0% Stonyfield Greek yogurt, not regular, drained if there's any liquid
(Note: you could skip this step if you need to save time, and use a low sugar pre-made pizza sauce)
- 1/3 cup canned san marzano tomatoes, crushed by hand
- 1 small garlic clove, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- pinch dried oregano
- fresh black pepper to taste
- 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced thin and torn by hand
- fresh basil, torn for topping
- extra virgin olive oil, optional for drizzling
Top with fresh sliced banana or sweet peppers, and some fresh onions.
- 1. In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk well.
- 2. Add the yogurt and mix with a fork or spatula until well combined, it will look like small crumbles.
- 3. Lightly dust flour on a work surface and remove dough from the bowl, knead the dough a few times until dough is tacky, but not sticky, about 20 turns (it should not leave dough on your hand when you pull away).
- 4. Preheat oven to 450F. (pizza stone works well) , and preheat the stone in the oven as well. If using a round pizza pan or sheet pan, spray with oil.
- 5. Sprinkle a work surface and rolling pin with a little flour and roll the dough out into a large thin round or oval (or you can make 2 smaller pies).
- 6. Lay the dough out onto the oiled nonstick pizza dish or sheet pan.
- 7. Spread the sauce over the crust. Top with cheese, peppers and onions and place the pan on the pizza stone, bake 10 to 12 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and the crust is cooked through.
- 8. Transfer to a cutting board, top with basil and drizzle with olive oil, if desired. Slice the pie into 8 slices.
