Bratwurst and Vegetable Pizza from Scratch

I made my first pizza from scratch last week, with homemade half whole 
wheat dough all in all pretty easy,  super tasty and healthy.


  • 2 cups of bread flour
  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon active yeast 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • about 1 1/2 cups of water enough to make a dough
  • 2 tablespoon of tomato paste 
  • freshly chopped oregano and basil about 1/2 a cup
  • 1/2 a zucchini sliced
  • 1/2 a yellow squash sliced
  • 5 mushrooms sliced 
  • 2 fresh tomatoes sliced 
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheeses of choice 
  • one cooked smoked bratwurst sliced

  1. Mix the flour with yeast and salt, keep a little back for kneading, then slowly mix in the water to make a dough
  2. let it sit for 5 minutes 
  3. knead it and let it rest another 45 minutes for the yeast to do its magic
  4. after the 45 minutes roll it out as flat as you can add flour to stop it sticking a pizza peel helps to transfer to and from oven
  5. top the pizza with tomato paste, fresh herbs, tomato, bratwurst and vegetables and the cheese
  6. also its wonderful to get a pizza stone and bake on this at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted
  7. serve and enjoy

 Has anyone else made pizza from scratch?

  14. Not for years! When the kids were little, they loved putting their own toppings on.
    This looks wonderful, Rebecca!

  15. We make pizza all the time. As unoriginal as it may sound, it's my favorite food. It's become a go to dish for me now that I've found my favorite crust recipe.

    Such a great idea with the bratwurst. We get some here locally and I'll have to remember this when I want to use some up. I love squash on pizza as well. great combo!

  16. Pizza from scratch is the best! We rock the bratwurst on ours too (at least on my side of the pizza!) Great recipe :)

  22. We have pizza night every Friday in our house and I started to make my own dough too. It is so much better, my boys love to choose the toppings... Thanks for sharing your delicious looking pizza!

  23. Looks great Rebecca! I made pizza dough several times but I leave it to my husband most of the time since he meddles in waay too much when I am making it. Just because he worked at Pizza Inn one summer when he was 17 makes him the pizza guru! So I shut up and leave the kitchen to him!

  24. BRAVO! Your pizza looks fantastic...
    very impressive Rebecca :)
