Pizza with Red & Green Peppers, Onions, Artichoke Hearts, and Olives
Quite possibly the best pizza we've ever had! If you cook the sauce while the dough is rising, and cut the veggies for the pizza while the sauce is simmering, the whole thing takes about 90 minutes from start to finished-and-ready-to-eat. There's even time to make a salad after you cut the veggies or while the pizza is baking.

Pizza with Red & Green Peppers, Onions, Artichoke Hearts, and Olives Preparation
Make Easy Whole-Wheat Pizza Dough (see link at end of instructions).
While the dough is rising, make Garden-Fresh Pizza Sauce (see link at end of instructions; note - we only had one can of tomato paste, so we used one can instead of two, and it was perfect).
Preheat oven to 425F.
Sprinkle a pizza stone or baking pan with a thin layer of cornmeal so that the pizza does not stick to the stone or pan - make sure all areas are covered.
Once dough is done rising, roll the dough out onto a 12-14" pizza stone, or roll and place in an appropriate-sized baking pan, rolling the dough up around the edges. Cover dough with 2 cups sauce. Arrange the vegetables over the sauce, and cover with the cheese.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the cheese is slightly browned on top and the crust is golden.
Let cool 5 minutes before cutting.
Makes one 12-14" pizza (4 servings of 2 slices each).
Garden Fresh Pizza Sauce
Easy Whole-Wheat Pizza Dough
Quite possibly the best pizza we've ever had! It's kind of funny, because we had a huge snow storm yesterday, and we arrived at the grocery store just 5 minutes before they were going to close (early, because of the snow). We hadn't really thought about what toppings we wanted on the pizza, so we just sort of raced around and grabbed what sounded good - red onion, green and red bell peppers, tomatoes, canned artichoke hearts, and black and green olives. It turned out to be a perfect combination.
