It’s hip to be square! When it comes to making pizza, I much prefer to create my own pie instead of dialing for delivery. I get to control the ingredients, add all my own toppings (hello, yummy veggies) and it couldn’t be any easier. This sheet-pan version takes just about 30 minutes—and that includes whipping up my own dough that crisps up nicely. I use the recipe from my beloved bagels recipe. The veggies are optional, but they’re a must-have in my house. The slice is right!

This recipe makes 12 servings
Ingredients:
  • • 3 cups white whole wheat flour*
    • 1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • • 1 heaping Tablespoon Italian seasoning
    • 3 cups non-fat plain Greek yogurt**
    • 1 cup marinara sauce
    • 1 cup part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese
    • Sautéed veggies of choice, such as onions, peppers, mushrooms (optional)
    • Sprinkling Parmesan (optional)
    • Optional seasonings: Oregano, crushed red pepper flakes, garlic, basil (for garnish)

* Plain whole wheat and all-purpose flour work, too!

** Pour off liquid before measuring

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400°. Mist a half-size baking sheet (~18 x 13) with olive oil spray and set aside.

Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and Italian seasoning in a large bowl. Add the yogurt and mix until all the ingredients are incorporated into a batter. Knead the dough with clean hands until it’s dry and elastic— it will be all crumbly at first but keep working the dough and it will come together in about 1 minute (I promise!)

On the prepared baking sheet, keep pressing and pushing the dough and spread it out evenly. If it becomes too sticky to spread on pan, simply dust flour over the top and on your hands. Bake in oven for about 15 minutes for a firm pizza crust (10 mins for chewier, soft crust).

Spread 1 cup of sauce out over dough, leaving about ¼ inch along the outside for the crust. Sprinkle cheese out evenly and top with optional veggies and preferred seasonings. Place back in oven until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Cut into 9 slices and serve.
