Green and White Pizza

Updated on August 7, 2014
5 stars from 1 rating of Green & White Pizza

After some thought ...

I decided to post this recipe even though there are probably dozens of versions already posted ... everywhere.

This however, was my first attempt - had never even given thought to assembling a 'white' pizza until my husband suggested it. In fact, many years ago, when I was still living in Vancouver, Washington, I took my kids to a brand new restaurant that specialized in pizza and for something different I ordered a chicken and spinach pie. I was not impressed.

So ... here we go, my take on a tomato-less pizza (although, tomatoes could be added for a tasty option!)

I am putting the recipe for the quick and easy dough we used here:

Ingredients:

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast

1 teaspoon white sugar

1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

2 1/2 cups bread flour

2 tablespoons olive oil


Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

2. Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes (or until you are ready to use).

Dough will be sticky!

  4. Sprinkle half the Parmesan cheese on the crust.

      You lived in Vancouver? Well, anyone who once lived in Washington is alright by me. :) I actually like white pizza, so I'm sure I would like this recipe. Thank you my new friend.

      I lived in Washington for over twenty years, and anxious to move back ... maybe Wenatchee.

      Bill, I see you've met the Mrs.!

      Okay, this white pizza was my idea, I'll admit, but mainly because I wanted to try building pizza crust from scratch. I've done cornbread and biscuits since I was a kid, played with refrigerator rolls and (lately) branched out into artisan breads; but I had a hankerin' to tackle pizza as I'm more than a touch picky about what my pizza toppings sit on.

      Making the crust was way easier than I had expected, and I am fairly well satisfied with the finished product.

      The rest of the story, however, is all AnniePie's toppings, and that is the crowning glory of this fabulous pizza! I will NEVER order take-out again!!
