roasted veggie pizza with a whole wheat crust

So I've been trying to keep my red meat and white starch levels, butter other saturated fat and full fat dairy down to a minimum and follow a more heart healthy lifestyle. I came up with this really easy whole wheat pizza crust recipe. If you've never worked with whole wheat-white flour, it's great! Whole wheat white flour IS whole wheat flour. Same fiber as regular whole wheat flour but it has a lighter color and texture as it's made from a different type of wheat. It can often be used 1 for 1 in place of all purpose flour. I'm just loving it. So without further ado... my pizza recipe.

How To Make roasted veggie pizza with a whole wheat crust
1In a large bowl, stir together the yeast & warm water, add honey and set aside for 10 minutes. Makes enough dough for 1 (14-inch) pizza about 10 slices.
2Meanwhile in a glass measuring cup, combine the cold water, oil and salt. Add the cold water mixture to the yeast and stir in flour.
3Knead the dough on a lightly floured board until smooth and elastic.
4Put the dough in a lightly greased bowl and turn to coat. Let the dough rise, covered loosely with plastic food wrap in a warm, draft free place for 1 hour.
5When dough has finished rising, preheat oven to 425 degrees.
6Roll out to desired thickness and place on a lightly greased pizza pan or screen and spread pizza sauce over the top.
7Cut up/Slice Veggies as desired. Layer on a baking sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
8Sprinkle on 8 oz. bag of part skim mozzarella.
9Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes.
10Viola! A Healthy and delicious pizza! Enjoy!
