This quick bread pizza is one of my favourites. It’s great for kids as they don’t have to wait for the crust to rise! You can use a plain or spicy tomato sauce on this, but I love the taste and texture of fresh tomatoes.
FRESH TOMATO SAUCE
- 4 large tomatoes, halved, seeded and chopped
- 1⁄3 cup chopped fresh basil or 1⁄3 cup parsley
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1⁄4 cups whole wheat flour
- 1⁄3 cup cornmeal
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary or 1⁄2 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt

- 1 2⁄3 cups low-fat yogurt
- 3 tablespoons olive oil

- 1⁄4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- Combine tomatoes, basil, garlic, pepper and salt. Reserve.
- FOR THE CRUST: Combine flours with cornmeal, sugar, rosemary, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Stir together well. Combine yogurt with oil. Pour over dry ingredients and knead dough lightly into ball. Brush 15 x 10-inch baking dish lightly with oil. Press dough evenly into pan.
