Zucchini Tomato Pizza

Pizza... Friday?!?  Is this the new normal???

Used the whole wheat dough from Animal Vegetable Miracle (pg 146), duplicated below:

2-3 tsp yeast  (recipe calls for 3, I used around 2.25)
1.5 c warm water
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
2.5 c white flour
2 c whole wheat flour

Dissolve yeast into warm water and add oil and salt to that mixture.  Mix the flours together and then knead them into liquid ingredients.  Let rise 30-40 minutes.

The crust turned out really well.  It was nice and light.  I wasn't sure how much to knead, but after mixing together I kneaded for a couple minutes, then let rise.

This made two pizzas.  Grill-pan cooked some zucchini.  Sliced some cherry tomatoes into halves or so.  Fried a bit of minced garlic in oil.  Assembled.  Got some pre-made sauce from whole foods that was pretty good.  Used a bit of mozzarella on one, and some goat cheese on the other.

Pretty tasty.  And not real hard.  And I need a pizza paddle.

Pizza was sort of based on the pizza book, recipes 2 (pg 16) and 17 (pg 40).
