Ingredients
  

For Dough

  • 1 Recipe for Whole Wheat Pizza Dough (see Instructions below)

For Filling

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 fresh onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 4 cups fresh spinach leaves
  • 3/4 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
  • Ground oregano , to taste
  • Ground pepper , to taste

Instructions
 

For the Filling

  • Heat oil over medium heat in skillet. Saute garlic and onion for 2-3 minutes, until garlic starts to brown.
  • Add broccoli and saute 3 minutes until lightly cooked.
  • Add spinach to pan and stir until wilted.
  • Using a slotted spatula, remove vegetables from pan and place on paper towels to drain away some of the excess moisture.

For Pizza Dough

To Assemble

  • After dough has risen and doubled in size, punch down to release air.
  • Split dough in half. Set aside one half. You can store the dough in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 4 months.
  • With the remaining half, divide again so you have 2 equal pieces.
    Press or roll each dough out on a floured surface to about a 9 inch round.
  • Layer 1/2 of the cheeses, followed by 1/2 of the drained veggies on half of each round.
  • Top with seasonings if desired.
  • Fold over and pinch edges to seal.

To Bake

  • Bake in preheated 500° oven (can use a pizza slab or stone or just a traditional baking sheet lined or greased) until browned, about 11-15 minutes.
