!Pizza Dough

  • ½ a cube of Fresh Active Yeast 21g or .75 ounces or 1 Packet Dry Yeast
  • ½ cup Water warm
  • 2 cups 250g Whole Wheat Flour
  • ¾ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Whole Cane Sugar

!Chipotle Sauce

  • 1/2 of a cup Coconut Milk
  • 3 Chipotles in Adobo Sauce from a can

!Tomato Sauce

  • ½ of a cup 125ml Tomato Puree
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • Salt and crushed Pepper to taste

!Pizza Toppings

  • 1 small Red Onion sliced
  • 1/2 of a Red Bell Pepper finely diced
  • 1/2 of a Green Bell Pepper finely diced
  • 1/2 of a cup Sweet Corn
  • 1/2 of a cup Kidney Beans drained and rinsed from a can or soaked and cooked
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cumin
  • Cilantro optional


  1. Combine Yeast, ½ Cup (125ml) warm Water, and 2 tablespoons of the flour. Let stand for 10 minutes. Mix with a dough hook or knead with your hands while slowly adding salt and the rest of the flour. Knead until the dough is no longer sticking to the side of the bowl. The dough should not be sticking to your hands but still be soft and moist. (See notes if it is not) Cover dough with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for 20-40 minutes until it has doubled in size.
  2. Preheat oven to 450F.
  3. Prepare chipotle sauce by pureeing peppers and coconut milk until smooth in a food processor or with an immersion blender.
  4. Make tomato sauce by stirring together all ingredients. Set aside
  5. Take half of the risen dough and ,using a rolling pin, roll each half into a pizza base/crust. Using your thumb and index finger fold small sections of dough over to form a raised crust.
  6. Lay on parchment paper lined sheet pan or pizza stone and cover to let rise for another 10 minutes. Repeat with remaining dough to make second pizza base.
  7. Assemble pizza by spreading 1/4 of a cup tomato sauce on each pizza base, top with vegetables, and drizzle with a bit of chipotle sauce.
  8. Bake in oven for 10 minutes.
  9. Serve hot and drizzle with more chipotle sauce and sprinkle with fresh cilantro if desired.
