Ingredients for Pizza Dough:
¼ oz. active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (100 - 110° F.)
2 tsp. sugar
3 – 3¼ cups whole wheat flour, divided use
½ tsp. fine sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
2 tsp. olive oil, divided use
Ingredients for Pizza:
½ cup all-natural pizza sauce, no sugar added
4 oz. cooked chicken breast, boneless, skinless, shredded
2 cups fresh arugula
½ oz. shaved Parmesan cheese
1 cup cherry tomato halves
¼ cup sliced black olives
For Pizza Dough:
Place yeast, water, and sugar in a medium bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes, or until yeast becomes foamy.
Combine 3 cups flour and salt in a small bowl. Gradually add flour mixture to yeast mixture. Mix with clean hands until mixture does not stick to your hands. Add additional flour if needed. Roll dough into a ball. Brush with ½ tsp. oil. Place in a bowl; cover with a towel. Let rise for 2 hours.
Punch down dough to remove air; knead and roll into a ball. Brush with ½ tsp. oil. Place in a bowl; cover with a towel. Let rise for an additional 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 450° F.
Roll dough until it will no longer stretch. Let rest for 5 minutes. Continue to roll until it reaches your desired diameter, about 10 to 12-inches, and about ½-inch thick. Place on baking pan lightly coated with spray.
Brush with remaining 1 tsp. oil.
Spread pizza dough evenly with pizza sauce, stopping ½-inch from edge.
Top evenly with chicken.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until crust is golden.
Top with arugula, cheese, tomatoes, and olives.
