The Boboli Crust recipe makes two pizzas, with FOUR servings per pizza.

TOTAL 8 SERVINGS

Ingredients


PIZZA CRUST

1 Tbsp. active dry yeast

1 1/2 cups warm water

2 Tbsp. olive oil

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup unprocessed wheat bran

(You can also use Boboli pre-made pizza crust but note the CALORIC differences on the side and the SERVING SIZE differences.)

TOPPINGS

2 cups pasta sauce
(We used Walnut Acres Tomato & Basil Low Sodium.)

4 Tbsp. sliced olives

1 green bell pepper diced

1 tomato diced

1 cup of mushrooms sliced

1 cup meatless burger substitute
(We used Boca Meatless Ground Burger.)

1 cup shredded fat free cheddar cheese

1 cup shredded fat free mozzarella cheese

Fat-free cooking spray


1. Mix the yeast with 1/2 cup of warm water. Let stand until yeast begins to foam, approximately 5 to 10 minutes.

2. Add remaining water and olive oil. Stir to combine. Using a blender with a "dough hook" add the flour and then wheat bran until a sticky dough forms. Knead with the blender or by hand for approximately 5 minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic.

3. Put the dough in a bowl, cover with a clean towel and let is rise in a warm place for 1 to 1.5 hours (until doubled).

4. Punch the dough down once it has doubled and split into two equal sized balls. These two balls will become your two pizzas. Spray two pizza pans with fat-free cooking spray. Let dough rest for 30 minutes, shape into pizza crusts and place on pans.

5. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Farenheit. Prebake the fresh crust for approximately 3 to 4 minutes per crust.

6. Remove from the oven and add the toppings. Split the toppings between the two pizzas and spread them evenly over both. Cook each pizza for approximately 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cheese melts.

7. Remove pizza from the oven, cut and serve! Each slice makes a great (and healthy) afternoon treat. If you are not on a reduced sodium diet, you can add a dash of salt to each slice for a little extra flavor.

Yield: 4 Servings - Serving Size 2 Slices (1/2 of Pizza)
