Ingredients

1 Tbsp
brewer's yeast
1 Tbsp
sugar
1/2 c
warm water
1 pinch
salt
1 tsp
olive oil
1/2 c
marinara sauce
1/4 c
thin sliced green bell pepper
1/4 c
thin sliced red or white onion
1/4 c
cooked italian sausage
1 c
mixed cheeses (i use grated parm/cheddar and fontina)
1 1/2 c
all purpose flour

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In large mixing bowl combine yeast and sugar and warm water. Let sit for 3 minutes then add olive oil and flour and mix to form dough. Cover lightly with towel and set aside.
2
Thin chop vegetables and grate cheeses.

Remove dough from bowl and shape on baking stone or pizza pan into 12-14 inch circle. Stretch dough thin for a crisper crust.
3
Top dough circle with marinara sauce/veggies and meat then top this with cheeses.

Can sprinkle a dash of garic/basil or oregano on top for extra flavor.

Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees. Crust will rise and cheese will bubble and turn golden.


Enjoy!
