1 1/4 c. Hot Water
2 1/2 t. Active Dry Yeast
1 1/2 t. Sugar
2 c. Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 c. All Purpose Flour (I prefer unbleached)
1 1/2 t. Salt
1/4 c. Olive Oil
1 c. Marinara Sauce
(I know, it breaks my no-can rule, but I'll post a recipe for it later)
Various Vegetable Toppings
(Or meaty toppings, if you like)
*In honor of Trinity Sunday, I'm doing THREE vegetables: Squash, Onion and Bell Pepper.
2. T. Olive Oil.
2 c. Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 T. Garlic Powder
1 T. Oregano
1. Wisk the water, Sugar and Yeast together. Set the mixture aside for 10 min. until it gets foamy on top.
2. Put the Flour and Salt together in a Kitchen Aid Mixer with a dough hook. Start it on low, and slowly pour in the Yeast mixture and Olive Oil. Let it mix together thoroughly.
*You can do this all in a large mixing bowl. Use a wooden spoon to stir everything together and then knead for 8 - 10 min.
3. Oil a large mixing bowl. Put the dough in it. Turn the dough over once, to cover it in oil. Cover with a tea towel, and let it rise for 1 - 1 1/2 hrs.
5. Punch the dough down. Cut it in half. Put half in the refrigerator for later use or use it for bread sticks. With the remaining dough, roll it into a ball. Then, with a rolling pin, roll out on a well-floured surface into a large round pizza crust shape.
6. Carefully place the rolled out dough into the preheated cast iron skillet. Move it around as quickly as possible to center it, as it will start cooking immediately. With a fork, press the dough around the sides of the skillet to create a lip around the edge of the dough. Then, stab several holes on the bottom of the crust to keep it from bubbling up.
7. Cook the crust apx. 5. min. until dark brown on the bottom, when you lift it. Then, transfer the crust to a pizza stone or grill.

9. Preheat an oven with a broiler to 350ºF. (177ºC).
10. With a spoon, spread the Marinara Sauce onto the Pizza crust. Then, top it with the sautéed vegetables. Sprinkle on the Garlic Powder and Oregano. After than, sprinkle the cheese on, covering the pizza evenly, making sure you cover it to the edges.
11. Place the Pizza on the stone or pan on the top rack of the oven. Then, set the broiler to low. Broil it for about 4-5 minutes, just to where the cheese is melting. Turn the Pizza 1/4 Turn and continue to broil the pizza until the cheese starts to brown.
12. Take the Pizza out. Slice up and enjoy!
