15 VEGETABLE PIZZA - With Spinach Puree and White Wheat Pastry Flour

Vegetable Pizza - Indianised version of pizza with a twist by adding spinach puree to prepare the pizza dough and also using White whole wheat pastry flour instead of regular flour(whole wheat flour or all purpose flour).

White whole wheat pastry flour is very different from whole wheat flour. It can be used to make pies, cookies and other sweet or savory pastries.

White Whole Wheat pastry Flour - 5 cups
Spinach leaves - 1 pack ( 2 bunch)
Cumin seeds - 1 tbsp
Olive Oil - 2 tbsp
Milk - 1 cup
Rapid Rise Yeast - 1 pack
Garlic - 10 cloves/flakes

For the toppings:-

Pizza Sauce( Marinara Sauce)
Cheese (pizza cheese/mozarella)
Oregano Leaves(optional)
Chopped red onion, chopped mushroom, deseeded and chopped tomatoes, chopped capsicum, chopped jalapeno, chopped pine apple, chopped olives( use toppings as desired)

Grind spinach with cumin seeds and garlic to a fine paste. Warm milk ( in a microwave for 45 seconds or on stove top for few seconds).
In a large bowl sift in flour, yeast and salt. Add in spinach puree and milk and mix well and prepare a soft dough. Add a tbsp of olive oil and knead well. Cover and set it aside for 3 - 4 hours.

Set the oven to broil( or to 450 degrees)

Divide the dough and roll each one on a pizza sheet/stone by applying olive oil.

If cooking on broil then place the pizza sheet/stone with the rolled dough and cook on broil for 4 - 6 minutes. So that the one side is cooked. Remove and cool. Turn the side and on the top side spread some pizza sauce evenly. Next spread all the desired veggies and cover it with cheese.Sprinkle some Dried oregano leaves. Cook on broil for another 8 - 10 minutes. Remove, cut and serve.

If not cooking using broil method then preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place the prepared dough with all the toppings and cook for 12 - 15 minutes. Remove and serve.

Makes 2 large pizzas.
