Whole Wheat Crust
  • 2 tablespoons - sugar
  • 2 packages - active dry yeast
  • 2 cups - very warm water (105 to 115 degrees F)
  • 3 3/4 cups - whole wheat flour
  • 3 3/4 cups - regular flour
  • 7 tablespoons - vegetable oil
  • Tomato Sauce
  • 4 cans - 16 oz. tomatoes, drained, chopped
  • 2 cans - 14 oz. tomatoes, drained, chopped
  • 1/4 cups - olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons - fresh basil OR 2 teaspoons dry basil
  • 2 teaspoons - oregano
  • 2 teaspoons - salt
  • 2 cloves - garlic, minced
  • Broccoli Filling
  • 4 stalks - broccoli (about 4 cups), cooked, diced
  • 2 teaspoons - salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons - black pepper
  • 4 teaspoons - minced garlic
  • 1/4 cups - olive oil
  • 2 pounds - mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Directions:

    For crust, dissolve sugar and yeast in water in large bowl. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir in flours and oil until stiff dough forms. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic. Put into greased bowl. Let rise in warm place until double, about 1 hour.

    Meanwhile, for tomato sauce, mix all ingredients in medium bowl. For filling, mix all ingredients in large bowl.

    Divide dough in half. Roll out 1 half into a round about 1/4-inch thick, stretching by hand to cover a 12-inch deep-dish pizza pan.

    Grease a 12-inch deep dish pizza pan; put rolled dough into bottom. Press up sides of pan and allow edges to overlap the sides. Set aside.

    Heat oven to 500 degrees F.

    Put filling into crust in pan. Roll out remaining dough on floured surface into 1/4-inch thick sheet. Lay over filling. Crimp the two edges together.

    With a rolling pin, roll across the top edge of the pan to cut off excess dough. Spread about 1/4-inch of the tomato sauce on top of the dough (it should just cover the top).

    Bake at 500 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, until crust is golden. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
