Mushroom Broccoli Pizza

I wouldn't say I'm a vegetarian, but I do like meatless entrees. Since I enjoy gardening, I often cook with homegrown veggies, finding creative ways to use them up, like in this fresh, filling pizza. —Kathleen Kelley, Roseburg, Oregon

    6 slice

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • TOPPINGS:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 4 plum tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • In a bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil and sugar; mix well. Combine whole wheat flour and salt; stir into yeast mixture until smooth. Stir in enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours. Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Punch down dough; press onto a 12-in. pizza pan coated with cooking spray. Prick dough several times with a fork. Bake until edges are light golden brown, 10-12 minutes.
  • In a nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute mushrooms, onion and garlic until tender. Place broccoli and water in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave, covered, on high until broccoli is crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Drain well.
  • Spread pizza sauce over crust. Top with mushroom mixture, tomatoes, broccoli, basil and cheeses. Bake until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted, 12-14 minutes.
