Artichoke, Garlic, and Fresh Tomato Pizza

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 417
Yield: 1 Pizza


1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1 cup water
1/4 cup vital* wheat gluten
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon dry active yeast
1 tablespoon raw sugar
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
6-12 cloves garlic pressed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 (16-ounce) can artichoke hearts drained and finely chopped
3-4 tomatoes
1/2 cup freshly grated mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


1. Place all the dough ingredients in a bread machine and process until the dough has risen once. If you do not have a bread machine, mix together all the dough ingredients in a large bowl and knead by hand for at least 10 minutes. Cover the bowl with a towel and let the dough rise for about 1 hour in a warm place.

2. After the dough has risen, turn it out onto a well-oiled 11-x-16-inch cookie sheet. Pat and stretch the dough to cover the bottom and sides of the sheet.

3. Press the garlic into a medium-size bowl. Add the oil, herbs, and salt, and stir to combine. Add the artichoke hearts and mix well.

4. Cut the tomatoes into slices 1/4–1/2 inch thick. Select the 12 biggest slices and set aside.

5. Spread the artichoke mixture evenly over the crust. Arrange the toma to slices in a layer over the artichoke mixture. Top with the grated cheeses. Place the pizza in a cold oven, then turn the heat to 375°F. Bake the pizza for 12 minutes, or until the crust is crispy and golden brown. (Lift the edge of the pizza to check the underside.)

6. To serve, cut the pizza into 12 squares, with 1 tomato slice per piece. Serve hot.

*Vital wheat gluten is a wonderful addition to whole-grain breads because it helps them rise and attain a pleasingly light texture. It can be purchased at natural food stores.
