    fresh fanatic's Note:

    Since this recipe makes a thin-crust pizza, I would recommend making two pizzas. If you're short on time, thaw a frozen 1 pound loaf of whole-wheat bread dough instead of the homemade crust.

    1. 1
      In a small bowl combing yeast and warm water. Let stad for 5 minutes. Stir in honey and the 1 tablespoon olive oil. In a large bouwl combine whole wheat flour, cornmeal, and salt. Stir in yeast mixture. Stir in as much all-purpose flour as you can.

      Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6-8 minutes total). Shape dough into a ball, cover and let rise until nearly double (30-45 minutes).
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, prepare spinach pesto. In food processor bowl place spinach, basil, garlic, parmesan cheese, the 1/3 cup of olive oil, and lemon juice. Cover and process until smooth. Set aside.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 425°F
    5. 5

Top with pesto sauce, pepperoni, tomatoes (if using), and cheese. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until bubbly. Makes 8 servings.

      This is our summertime pizza! We've made it about 7 times since June! Delicious. The pesto is a fantastic base of flavour to this pizza. I use less oil - about 1-2 tbsp then add enough water to make 1/3 cup. Instead of the pepperoni we add vegetarian "chicken" strips. I can't say enough about this pizza! A must try. The crust is also fantastic. We now use it for our other pizza recipes. Thanks!

      This was really yummy! I made some adjustments for personal tastes plus we're trying to be more veggie. I used a package pizza dough mix. I added some walnuts to the pesto and I topped the pizza with a can of drained white beans. I also cooked the pizza on the grill. I wish I'd a roma tomato, next time! Thanks for a delicious idea!

      I made two pizzas using your crust recipe. I cheated - by using the Kitchen Aid mixer to do the mixing & kneading. Used a hot pizza stone for one crust and a baking sheet for the other. The pizza crust baked on the pizza stone baked more consistently. The spinach pesto makes this pizza a welcome change from the regular tomato sauce - very delicious. Thank you for posting. Made for PAC, spring 2008.
