A few years into our marriage, my husband decided he wanted to have a signature dish he could call his own, one that only he could create. After flipping through some of my cookbooks and magazines, he found his own pizza dough recipe.
This will make either one very large crust or two smaller ones. We usually make two
1 1/2 cups hot water
1 package of active dry yeast
1 tbsp sugar
Dissolve yeast in hot water along with sugar. Let rest for 5 minutes covered with hot damp towel.
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp oregano
1 clove garlic minced
1 tbsp olive oil
Mix above ingredients together and then gradually add yeast mixture. Make sure all ingredients are combined until "tacky" texture. Let rise with hot damp towel in warm area of kitchen, or house, for 1 hour. Dough should double in size. Once dough is ready, turn out on floured surface, toss and spread on pizza stone or sheet.
Prepare above pizza dough recipe
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 cups water
I cooked my chicken in a crockpot to save time and allow for me to use it for other recipes since I was not going to use it all for the pizza topping.
1 can salt free organic tomato sauce
1 tsp organic Woresterhire Sauce (There is a great vegetarian version too!)
1 tsp yellow mustard
1/4 cups apple cider vinegar
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp chili powder
1 tbsp agave nectar
Mix ingredients in medium saucepan and heat for 5 minutes. Once heated add 2 cups shredded chicken and stir. Allow chicken to cook for 10 minutes and remove from heat.
Once dough is ready rub 1 tbsp olive oil and spread chicken over pizza. Add 1/2 sliced red onion, 1 cup shredded spinach, 1 red pepper diced, 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese and 1 cup Monterery jack cheese.
Bake at 350degrees for 15 minutes or until the cheese is how you like it!
