Neleen Nichols



1/2 cup warm water
1 Tbsp sugar
1 pkg dry yeast
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
more water


Green Onions
Mozzarella cheese
Asiago, Parmesan, Romano, etc.


Goddess Dressing, pizza sauce, or Alfredo sauce

I highly recommend making this in a stand mixer if you've got one. Way easier. When I do use a stand mixer, I heat the bowl with warm water first. It kind of helps things along. I'm impatient.

Combine warm water, sugar and yeast in a cup measure, let sit until foamy
Pour the yeast mix into the mixing bowl and add about 1 more cup of warm water, the olive oil, and about 2 cups of flour. It should be more like a thick batter right now.
Stir these together then add the salt and enough flour to make a soft, but not sticky, dough. Knead for about 5 minutes until it is very smooth. Turn the dough out into an oiled bowl and let rise for about an hour. Punch down and let it rest while you gather your toppings.

Preheat oven to 475

Chop or slice just about any vegetable you want. Today I used cherry tomatoes and green onions.

Roll or press dough out to about 1/4" thickness. Place on a greased or sprayed baking sheet or pizza stone.
For vegetarian pizza I have found that Green Goddess or Goddess dressing works really well. It has a ton of flavor which helps the veggies a little. Spread your sauce or dressing thinly on the dough, going all the way to the edges.
Sprinkle grated cheese on top, place your veggies (not too many) and dust with just a tiny bit of salt.

Bake for about 15 - 20 minutes on a lower rack. Keep an eye on it because you want it very done, but not burned. The top must be golden brown for the crust to be fully cooked. Yum!

Personal Notes:
You can totally make this into a meat pizza. The goddess dressing might be a little strong for meat, but the Alfredo works really well with chicken and traditional red sauce is good with all meat pizzas.
