Makes 1 large pizza.

Ingredients:

Toppings:

Dough:

  • 3/4 c warm water
  • 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 c all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp semolina

Directions:

Toppings:

  1. Thinly slice the zucchini. Remove stem and seeds from pepper and cut into short strips.
  2. Slice onion in semi-circles. Place zucchini, peppers, and onions, in a small bowl with the Italian dressing. Toss well. Refrigerate and marinate while proceeding with dough.

Dough and Baking:

  1. Mix warm water and yeast in a small bowl and allow to proof 10 minutes.
  2. Add flour and salt and stir until thick. Turn out on a floured surface and knead 5 minutes, adding a bit more flour as needed.
  3. Place in oiled large bowl and oil top of dough. Cover with towel and allow to stand in a warm dark place until doubled (1 1/2-2 hours).
  4. Punch down and form into a ball. Cover and allow to rest 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Oil a large baking sheet (11" x 15" or similar) and sprinkle with the semolina.
  6. Spread dough out evenly on the baking sheet, using fingers to get it to edges.
  7. Bake without topping for 10 minutes. Remove and spread marinara sauce on top.
  8. Drain marinated vegetables and add over the sauce.
  9. Crumble Saucettes and add them to top.
  10. Bake another 10 minutes. Serve hot.
* I have used Worthington and Loma Linda vegetarian Products for many years, and I love them. The product line is constantly improving, and I feel the Saucettes taste better than ever! Recently, I received samples of the newest Worthington and Loma Linda products from Atlantic Natural Foods, and in the interest of full disclosure, I have used them in this recipe.
