homemade vegan pizza

i may be alone on this one, but i think pizza is so much better homemade than when you have it delivered from somewhere.  it always tastes so much fresher and never seems as greasy.  i thought this recipe for whole wheat vegan pizza sounded delicious and healthy!

for the dough:
1 ¼ cups warm water (105°-115°)
2 pkgs dry yeast
1 tbs honey
3 tbs olive oil
3-4 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp kosher salt

3/4 cup store-bought marinara or pizza sauce
6 button mushrooms, chopped
1 bell pepper, sliced
1/2 onion, sliced
1/4 cup sliced black olives
1/2 pint cherry tomatoes halved
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
fresh basil leaves

1. for the dough: mix together warm water, yeast, honey, and olive oil. let sit for about 5 minutes. make sure that the yeast is foamy. using a dough hook or a mixer, or by hand, slowly add in 3 cups of flour and 2 tsp salt.  knead the dough on low speed, or by hand, for 10 minutes. add flour as needed if the dough is sticky. dump dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead by hand 12 times. put dough in a well oiled bowl, roll dough around so that all sides are lightly coated in olive oil. cover with a clean cloth. let rise until double in volume, about 30-50 minutes. divide the dough into equal parts, make 2-6 pizzas depending on how big you want them. roll dough into balls and cover with a damp towel to rest 10 minutes. on a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to about 1/4 inch thick. sprinkle a light layer of cornmeal on baking sheet or pizza stone.

2. spread out pizza sauce evenly over pizzas, leaving a 1/2 inch border around the outside of the dough. evenly top pizza with toppings. sprinkle on dried oregano and drizzle over olive oil last. bake 10-15 minutes at 400° f (or 500° f if you like the crust extra crispy). remove from oven and top with basil leaves. let cool 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

Sub in some agave nectar for the honey, and this would be totally vegan!

Other than that, looks like a great recipe! Keep up the animal-free recipes!!
