Whole Wheat Pizza

Ingredients

  • 1 bag of Whole Foods whole wheat pizza dough
  • 1 24 oz San marzano tomato purée (you can use a smaller can but I like to have extra for eggplant parm or pasta for the week)
  • 1/2 yellow onion chopped into small pieces
  • 1 tbs minced garlic
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • Basil and shredded parm cheese to top (optional)

Steps

  1. Remove dough from bag and place on plate – coat with flour on all sides and let sit on counter to bring to room temp ( you should do this at least 1 hour before you want to start cooking your pizza)
  2. In large pan, heat olive oil at medium low heat – add onion and cook for 3 minutes or until translucent
  3. Add garlic and cook for 60 seconds
  4. Add tomato purée and simmer for 20 minutes – stirring often
  5. Set oven to 400 degree
  6. Cut the dough into 4 quadrants
  7. You can make all four pieces or put half the dough back in the fridge
  8. For each piece roll out into a circle so the dough is 1/4 inch thick (ensure flour is on the surface to roll)
  9. On a pizza stone or baking sheet sprinkle flour so dough doesn’t stick – place pizza dough on sheet and cook in oven for 7 minutes
  10. Remove dough and add a few tablespoons of Sauce in a thin layer leaving a 1/2 inch of dough around the outside untouched
  11. Cook for another 3 minutes – remove and sprinkle cheese on sauce and cook for another 3 minutes
  12. Remove- top pizza with parm cheese and basil if desired
