Homemade Healthy Whole Wheat Pizza takes a bit of time but is easy and delicious. You can use any vegetables: my favorites are broiled eggplant, sauteed mushrooms and broccolini sauteed with garlic! One serving = 2 slices (1 pie = 8 slices)
Take out pizza dough so it comes to room temperature (I leave out for at least 1 hour).
Broil the Eggplant: Set rack to top and start broiler. Wash and slice eggplant into 1/3 inch thick slices. Set on a baking sheet lined with foil. Lightly spray or brush slices with olive oil then lightly salt. Turn the slices and lightly oil & salt the other side. Broil for 3-8 minutes per side, until golden brown. Turn and broil the other side. Set aside.
Preheat oven. First, carefully move the rack(s) to the middle of the oven. Then preheat to 425 (with pizza stone if you use...I do not.)
Saute the sliced mushrooms over medium-high heat in a large saute pan in about 2 TB of olive oil until lightly browned, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove to plate.
Prepare the broccolini and garlic. While mushrooms are sauteeing, wash broccolini, discard stems and leaves, and cut heads into bite-size pieces. Slice garlic.
Saute the garlic and broccolini. In the same pan used for mushrooms, add about 2 TB of olive oil and once warm, add garlic and cook over medium heat for 1-3 minutes until garlic is fragrant but not brown. Add broccolini heads, mix, and cook for 2-3 minutes, then add a bit of water, cover and let steam for 1-2 minutes.
Once pizza dough has come to room temperature, roll it on a lightly floured surface to the size of your pizza pan or desired size. (Note: dough should not feel wet - if it does, add more flour to avoid sticking to pan.) If using pizza pan with holes (aka perforated pizza pan) place dough on the pan and stretch to sides.
Spread the pizza sauce on top of the rolled dough. Dot with mozzarella slices. Atop the cheese, add the broiled eggplant, sauteed mushrooms and sauteed broccolini/garlic.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Lift bottom of pizza to check it's cooked long enough to reach your desired crispiness. Slice with pizza cutter into eighths.
