February 25, 2021  Online Recipe Guide Avatar

Makes 2 (12-inch) pizzas


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 envelope FLEISCHMANN’S RapidRise Yeast

1- 1 / 2 teaspoons salt

1 cup very warm water (120o to 130oF)

2 tablespoons olive oil



Pesto Topping

1 / 2 cup prepared pesto sauce

1 (6.5-ounce) jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained

1 medium tomato, sliced into wedges

1 / 2 cup pine nuts

1 / 2 cup shredded Romano cheese

1 / 2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

In a large bowl, combine 1 cup all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, undissolved yeast, and salt. Add water and olive oil; beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough in half; roll each half to 12-inch circle. Place on 2 (12-inch) pizza pans that have been brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with cornmeal. Form a standing rim by pinching the edge of the dough. Prick dough with fork; let rest 10 minutes.

Parbake at 400oF for 8 minutes. Remove from pans; place on wire cooling racks. Spread pesto sauce evenly on each pizza crust. Top with artichokes and tomato wedges; sprinkle with pine nuts and cheeses.

Bake on wire racks at 400oF for 10 minutes or until done, switching positions of pans halfway through baking for even browning. Serve warm.
