Easy Thin Crust Pizza!!

2 3/4 c Whole Wheat Flour
2 T Olive Oil
1 t Salt
1 Packet Yeast (or 2 scant T)

Dissolve yeast in 1 C warm water with 1/4 t. sugar for 10 min.

Mix flour, evoo and yeast mixture with a dough hook for 5 min.

Let dough rest in oiled bowl, covered with a towel for 1 hour.
(See below.)
I usually sit my covered bowl in a sunny spot in the house. It rises faster.

After about an hour, the dough will have risen about twice its size.

Cut dough in half. (This recipe will make 2 rectangular pizza crusts.)

Roll out on a slightly oiled surface.
Sprinkle cornmeal onto a cookie sheet. Place dough on top.

Lightly coat the crust with olive oil before spreading your tomato sauce.
This will create a barrier and keep the sauce from soaking into the dough.

Pile on the your favorite toppings!

I used what I had for this one....

big round zucchini slices
corn off the cob
red onion
diced green onion
fresh oregano and basil
a sprinkle of orange and feta cheese.

It's now ready to bake at 475 for 18 minutes.
(This is the pizza right before it went into the oven.)

And here it is once out of the oven!!
A thumbs up!
I make this at least once a week!
So good for you!
Serve with a side salad!

Why not?

Corn on the Cob Spritzed with Olive Oil
Fresh Tomatoes with Chopped Basil & Sea Salt
Sauteed Summer Yellow Squash with Red Onion
Steamed Swish Chard with Garlic
I am not a vegetarian; however, harvest season is a great time to
flood your body with beautiful food.

I try to prepare at least 2 vegetarian meals a week for dinner.
Veggie dinners are probably the easiest to prepare.

Give it a go!
Why not?
Keep it simple.
Remember my motto:
Eat Simply. Simply Eat.

Happy Fall!

We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives.
We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace
that is comfortable for us.

We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something.

Don’t dwell on your failures, but think about your successes.

Have joy in your home.
Have joy in your children.
Have joy in your husband.

Be grateful for the journey.
