Dairy, egg and nut free (healthy) pizza!
Ash loves this pizza, and little does he know it's packed with calcium, protein and omega 3 fatty acids! I add some goodies to the crust that make this pizza super healthy. You can make this safe crust recipe without the extras if you just want a plain crust.
What you'll need for the crust:
2 1/2 cups of flour (I use Hyvee brand unbleached)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 cup warm water
1 package active dry yeast
Preheat your oven to 425. Mix your package of yeast with the 1 cup of warm water and set aside. In a bowl, combine sugar, salt, oil, and flour. Add water/yeast mixture and stir until a dough forms. Let it reast for a few minutes. I usually wait about 5-7 minutes. Put dough on floured counter and knead about 15-20 times. This is where I add my spinach and flax seed. Cut into portions. This will make a large pizza or a few small ones. PS- it freezes GREAT! Spray dairy free cooking spray (I use Country fare from hyvee) onto a cookie sheet and either roll out your dough or just gently pat it down. Put your toppings on and bake about 20 minutes!
