Leftovers Pizza

I made this delicious pizza on Monday with the leftovers from the weekend

Whole wheat pizza dough, pizza sauce, cheese, chicken, bell pepper, pepperoni and bacon, because, why not? 

She is all ready for the oven!

For the Pizza Dough:
  • 1 cup warm (110 degrees F) water
  • 1 (1/4-ounce) envelope active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl combine the water, yeast, sugar and the oil. Let it sit for about 5 minutes or until its foamy.  Add the flour and the salt little by little and mix to combine. Work the dough until smooth and a little tacky (for about 3-5 mins and I do it right in the bowl). Grease a large bowl (or same bowl) with 2 tbsp of olive oil and turn the dough until covered in the oil. Cover with cling wrap and place in a warm place until it doubles in size.

Turn dough into a lightly floured surface and roll out into the desired shape. I used an inverted heavy duty cookie sheet because I was too lazy to whip out the pizza stone and it worked perfectly. Top with your favorite toppings  and bake at 370 degrees F for about 25 mins., until crust is golden brown. And enjoy!

This pizza was delicious and the perfect way to use all the little bits of stuff we had in the fridge.
