Whole Wheat Tomato Mozzarella Pizza


My first foray into bread making, was using the famous Jim Lahey No Knead Bread Recipe. After several unsuccessful attempts, I quickly found one that worked. Here is a version of his No Knead Pizza recipe along with his Basic Tomato Recipe.

I decided to use 2/3rds of the dough for bread and 1/3rd for pizza. There is something to be said about making fresh home-made bread as well as whole wheat pizza!

Ingredients:
Bread or Pizza:
2 cups white all purpose flour
1 cup wheat flour
1/4 tsp yeast
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1.5 cups warm water

Tomato Sauce:
4 Roma tomatoes
fresh sea salt
1-2 tbsp olive oil

Pizza:
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup pepper jack cheese
crushed pepper
fresh or dried basil
6-8 sliced mini heirloom tomatoes
2-3 cloves garlic minced

Pre heat over to 450 degrees.

Set aside 1/3 of the dough for the pizza. Toss into an 8 in pizza. Top with fresh basic tomato sauce, mozzarella and pepper jack cheese. Add crushed pepper, fresh basil, garlic and heirloom tomatoes.

Bake pizza for 8-10 minutes. Switch to broil and broil for 6-8 minutes.
