A delicious white pizza!

Not Your Mama's Pizza

Recipe By: Susan Voisin
Servings 4-6

1 tbsp. dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 tbsp. olive oil
3 cups unbleached white flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. basil

Pan preparation:
olive oil spray
corn meal

1 tbsp. margarine
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 tbsp. flour
1 cup plain soy milk
salt and cayenne pepper

chopped onion (about 1/2 cup)
1-2 cloves garlic, chopped
chopped bell pepper (about 1/3 cup)
1 can artichoke hearts, chopped
8-10 mushrooms, sliced
olive oil spray
salt (optional)
soy parmesan (optional)

Crust: Put the water, yeast, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a dough blade. Let stand for 5 minutes. Add the remaining crust ingredients and process for about 3 minutes, until dough cleans the side of the bowl. Place in a bowl sprayed with olive oil, and put into a warm place until doubled in size. While the dough is rising, make your sauce and begin chopping your vegetables. When the dough is doubled, punch it down and spray your pizza pan or stone or large cookie sheet with olive oil and sprinkle with corn meal until lightly coated. Stretch your dough to fit into the pan. Place it back in a warm spot until sauce is made and toppings ready.

Preheat oven to 375.

Sauce: Melt the margarine in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and stir for 1 minute; do not brown. Stir in the flour to make a thick paste and cook, stirring rapidly, for 1 minute. Pour the soy milk in slowly, stirring to avoid lumps. (If you get lumps, pour it all in the blender, puree it smooth, and pour back into pan.)  Cook and stir a few minutes until thick. Add a pinch of cayenne and salt to taste.

Put it together: Drizzle the sauce over the crust and spread it smooth. Spread the toppings evenly over the sauce. Sprinkle with salt, if you like, and spray with olive oil (brush or drizzle if you don't have spray). Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with soy parmesan (optional), cut into pieces and devour ravenously.
