I think my house has turned into a pizza factory. We make pizza every week but we love it, know how to make healthy versions, and sometimes we just need something easy. I made this during the week, from scratch, and we ate by 6:30, success!
2c cherry tomatoes, halved
salt, pepper & oregano
1 yellow onion, halved then sliced
1c whole wheat flour
1c white flour + extra for rolling out dough
1 packet quick rise yeast
1/4c chia seeds
1c hot water (120C)
2c grated old cheddar
Preheat over to 500. Mix together tomatoes, salt, pepper, and oregano in a small baking dish. Roast in oven for 20 minutes. Combine a glug of evoo and onion in a frying pan, cook slowly until onions are caramelized. Turn oven down to 350 once tomatoes are cooked.
Combine flours, salt, yeast, and chia seeds in a bowl. Heat water in microwave, add in 1T evoo. Mix into dry ingredients until it does not stick to the walls of the bowl. Knead a few times on a floured counter, set aside in a warm place covered by a towel. Once risen, knew a few more times, roll out to desired size. Transfer to pizza stone. Top with a drizzle of evoo, caramelized onions, roasted tomatoes, and grated cheddar. Bake in 350 oven for 20 minutes (until crust is cooked and cheese is browned).
Let rest for 2 minutes, slice, and enjoy!
A great vegetarian option, because you don't need meat at every meal for your protein choice. We had our pizza with sliced veggies and hummus. We loved the basic ingredient combo and it was very budget friendly as well!
