Whole Wheat Veggie Pizza for Two


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup warm water
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce (low-sodium, if possible)
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (or use a vegan alternative)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced bell pepper (any color)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach leaves
  • Optional: crushed red pepper flakes, for serving


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, active dry yeast, sugar, and salt. Stir in the warm water and olive oil until a dough forms. Knead the dough for a few minutes until smooth, then cover the bowl with a clean cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes to 1 hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.
  2. Preheat your oven to 450°F (232°C). Prepare a pizza stone or a large baking sheet by lightly dusting it with whole wheat flour or cornmeal.
  3. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to your desired thickness, aiming for a 10-12 inch diameter circle. Transfer the dough to the prepared pizza stone or baking sheet.
  4. Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges. Sprinkle the dried oregano and basil over the sauce.
  5. Evenly distribute the shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce. Arrange the sliced bell pepper, red onion, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and baby spinach leaves on top of the cheese.
  6. Bake the pizza in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing. If desired, sprinkle some crushed red pepper flakes on top for an extra kick.
