White Pizza with Whole Wheat Crust

I experimented and made this white pizza using a whole wheat crust, fresh basil and oregano, and a fat free ricotta and part skim mozzarella cheese blend.  This made a large pizza with 9 servings at approximately 211 calories per slice. 

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 package active dry yeast
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup hot water
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon honey

In a large mixing bowl combine the whole wheat flour, yeast and salt.

Blend in water, oil and honey.  Stir vigorously until all ingredients are mixed well. Cover with plastic wrap and let dough rise to desired size.

Spray pizza pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Roll out dough and place on pizza pan.


1 Tablespoon Olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic clove
1 and 1/2 cups part skim mozzarella
1 cup fat free ricotta cheese
1 Tablespoon fresh basil
1 Tablespoon fresh oregano
1 Tomato, sliced
3 TBS. fresh parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Combine olive oil with garlic.  Spread over pizza crust.

Mix 1 cup of the shredded mozzarella cheese with the fat free ricotta cheese.  Spread over the pizza dough.  Sprinkle the remaining shredded mozzarella over the ricotta mixture to evenly distribute cheese on the crust.

I used a spice grinder to grind the fresh basil and oregano.

Sprinkle the fresh herbs over the cheese toppings.

Slice a fresh large tomato into thin slices.  Add to top of the pizza. Sprinkle with the fresh parmesan cheese.

Place in a preheated oven and cook for 15-20 minutes or until pizza is heated through. Remove from the oven.

This pizza contains 9 servings at approximately 211 calories/slice.  Enjoy!
