Let’s start our pizza dough!

In a non metallic bowl dissolve 1 tablespoon of quick rise dry active yeast in 1 cup of warm water.

To that add 2 teaspoons of salt…

1 heaping teaspoon of Italian seasoning…

2 tablespoons of olive oil…

And 1 tablespoon of honey.

Measuring out honey can be tough. If you measure out your tablespoon of olive oil first, your honey will slide right off of the oil coated tablespoon instead of sticking to it!

Now stir in 1 cup of whole wheat flour…

And two cups of regular ol’ flour.

Once your dough starts come together in the bowl, turn it out onto a floured surface and kneed it for a few minutes until it becomes elastic.

Next, place your dough in a bowl sprayed with cooking oil and let it rise for 30 minutes.

In a half an hour punch your inflated dough down and separate it into fours.

You could also separate it in half and make two regular sized pizzas!

Stretch your dough out onto your baking sheets and drizzle them with a bit of olive oil.

These pizza’s look ready for some sauce and toppings!!

Sure you could make your own pizza sauce or you could find a really great pre-made one!

What makes this particular sauce so wonderful? Well for starters it’s super yummy…

And I can recognize all of the ingredients in it!

Exactly what I would have put in my own sauce if I felt like making it.

Did somebody say toppings time?!

The big boys went crazy for the pepperoni…

And I was pleasantly surprised the little boys even noticed the veggies!

Pop your creations into a 425 degree oven for 12-15 minutes or until your the crust is nice and crispy.

How cute is Ewen’s little pizza?

Ahhhhhh….

Just what I like to see…

A table full of content, quite, happily eating boys!

But a table full of boys is never silent for long.

Time to get back to those shenanigans!

Enjoy!

    Once we figured out we could make pizza without cheese or meat, it is a weekly item around our place. I am totally lazy and use marinara sauce and now sometimes I leave out the crust and put the sauce and veggies on split French bread. And yes, we still call it pizza! Where do you get that brand of sauce you use?

    The honey/oil tip is really neat, I’ll keep that in mind! Also, I don’t know if your kids would go for this, but when I was younger my mother had my brother and me make pizzas on Italian bread, and even tortillas! It was unusual, but plenty of fun… same process, just bake until the edges are golden.

  7. My kids would love both of those Brandon! That Italian bread pizza sounds pretty amazing!
