A nutritious homemade crust that is yeast-free and rise-free, so there is no kneading and no waiting. And the best part – each family member can have exactly what they want on top of their pizza – that’s why we call them “Presto Pizza Mia” or “My Fast Pizza.”
1-1/4 cups (300 mL) all-purpose flour
1 cup (250 mL) whole wheat flour
1 tbsp (15 mL) baking powder
1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
1 cup (250 mL) Milk
1/4 cup (50 mL) butter, melted
2/3 cup (150 mL) pizza sauce
P1-1/2 cups (375 mL) diced vegetables (approx.)
1/2 cup (125 mL) diced lean ham (optional)
1-1/2 cups (375 mL) shredded Canadian Mozzarella cheese
Place a large baking sheet upside down on middle rack of oven and preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Then butter 1 or 2 more large baking sheets.
Crust: In large bowl, combine all-purpose and whole-wheat flours, baking powder, oregano and salt. Pour in Milk and butter; stir with a fork until soft dough forms. Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead a couple of times just until smooth. Divide into 6 pieces. Roll or pat 3 pieces into 6-inch (15 cm) circles and place on prepared baking sheet.
Topping: Spread pizza sauce on each crust, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) border. Sprinkle with ham and vegetables as desired. Sprinkle with half of the cheese.
Place pizzas on baking sheet on top of the hot baking sheet in oven. Bake for 12 to 15 min or until crust is golden, toppings are hot and cheese is bubbling. Meanwhile, repeat with remaining 3 pizzas. If you don’t have another baking sheet, leave pizzas on the work surface while you add toppings and reuse the prepared baking sheet when first batch is done (there’s no need to let it cool).
