Ingredients


Multigrain Crust:




  • Olive oil – ¼ cup
  • Skim milk – 2/3 cup
  • Baking powder – 1 tsp
  • Yellow cornmeal – ¼ cup
  • Flour – ½ cup, whole wheat
  • Flour – ½ cup, all-purpose
  • Oat flour – 1 cup, 1 ¼ cups of oats blended until they become fine

Toppings for the Spinach Pizza:




  • Mozzarella cheese – 1 ½ cups, part-skim, shredded
  • Mushrooms – 1 cup, fresh, sliced
  • Frozen spinach – 10 ounces, thawed then drained; or fresh spinach – 2 cups, torn
  • Pizza sauce – 8 ounces
  • Ground beef (vegetarian) – ½ lb; lean ground beef would also work (for non-vegetarians)

Directions


For the crust



  1. On a wide chopping board or clean counter, combine the baking powder, cornmeal, whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour and oat flour. Make a crate in the middle of the flour mixture and slowly mix the milk and oil. Using a fork, gradually mix the flour to the milk and oil mixture until dough is formed.
  2. Gently knead the dough for about 10-12 strokes. Get a 12-inch pizza pan and lightly grease it. Press dough in the pan, building up on its edges.
  3. Put the pan in the oven and bake at 425 degrees F temperature for about 12-15 minutes until the dough is brown.

For the toppings



  1. Warm the ground beef (vegetarian) in a saucepan or microwave. If you’re using ground beef, you need to cook them first until they’re not pink anymore and mix it with pizza sauce.
  2. Arrange your spinach on your pizza crust. Top with the “meat” mixture. Arrange the mushrooms on top of the meat and then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  3. Bake in the oven at 425 degrees F for about 10-15 minutes.
