Serving Size
1/4 whole pizza or 1 personal pizza

Dough Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons warm water
  • ½ cup medium grind whole cornmeal
  • 2 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


Pizza Toppings

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces (about ¾ cup) canned tomato sauce, no-salt-added
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 2 roasted red bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  1. First, make the dough by combining the honey and warm water, and sprinkle yeast on top. Let stand 5 minutes to proof. In a separate bowl, combine the cornmeal, whole wheat flour, and salt.
  2. Add the oil to the yeast mixture and pour in the flour mixture. Stir to combine ingredients and scoop onto a flat surface. Knead until elastic, adding more whole wheat flour as needed, about 5-8 minutes. (You can also knead using the dough hook on a stand mixer.) Place in an oiled bowl, cover and let stand until doubled, about 20-30 minutes.
  3. While the dough is rising, heat a medium skillet over medium-low heat, then add the olive oil to coat the pan. Add the onions and sauté until golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Transfer the caramelized onions to a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Split dough into four equal sized rounds to make four personal pizzas, and then spread dough out onto greased pizza pans forming a thin crust. (Or you can choose to make two 12-inch pizzas — as pictured — or one 16-inch pizza crust.) Top with tomato sauce, cheese, and veggies (caramelized onions, mushrooms, roasted red peppers), then season with oregano and red pepper flakes.
  5. Bake at 400°F for 15-18 minutes.
