For this event, chef made a whole wheat vegetable pizza for us and cheese and pepperoni pizzas for those who don’t object to white flour. Here’s the whole wheat dough recipe for other health fans who happen to love pizza, as much as we do, yet, desire to limit white flour from their diet

2 packets of yeast
2 T honey
1 T salt
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 T Olive oil
Mix all ingredients
Knead for 10 minutes

PS. Chef made homemade pizza sauce as well and topped with many veggies, basil, and oregeno.
