    A healthy dough made with low fat cheese and canadian bacon.


    • Whole-Grain Pizza Crust
    • 1 cup warm water
    • 2 (1/4 ounce ) packages active dry yeast
    • 1/2 cup skim milk
    • 2 tbs honey
    • 2 tbs olive oil (I used light olive oil)
    • 1/2tsp salt
    • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    • 1 cup cornmeal
    • 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 cups bread flour


    1. 1. In large bowl, combine water and yeast; let stand for 10 minutes until bubbly. Add milk, honey, olive-oil, and salt and mix well. Stir in whole wheat flour, cornmeal, and 1/2 cup bread flour; beat for 1 minute.
    2. 2. Stir in enough bread flour to make a firm dough. Turn onto floured surface and knead for 10 minutes. Place dough in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.
    3. 3. Turn dough onto floured work surface and let reset for 10 minutes. Spray a large cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
    4. While the dough is rising, prepare the sauce. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, oregano, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has evaporated and the onion is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook just until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomatoes and sugar and increase the heat to medium-high. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then lower the heat to medium-low and continue to simmer until reduced to about 1¼ cups, about 25 minutes. Off the heat, stir in the basil and oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    5. Transfer the dough ball to a dry work surface and roll out into a 13-inch disk about ¼-inch thick. Spread the pizza sauce down the middle of the dough and add your toppings. Tonight we used canadian bacon and fat free mozzarella cheese.
    6. After putting your toppings on, take a knife or a pizza cutter and slice each side of the dough into 3/4 of an inch strips. Once you have them all cut, start to criss cross each side until the entire portion is covered.
    7. Place on the baking (cookie) sheet and brush some melted butter (just a bit) over the top and sprinkle with oregano. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until crust is browned and cooked through.
