1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup sourdough starter*
1/2 to 3/4 cup water
1 teaspoon instant yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon vital wheat gluten [optional bread improver]
Mix water and sourdough starter in the bowl of a bread machine. Add the olive oil. Add the flours, salt, sugar and yeast. Use the Dough setting of the machine. If not using a bread machine, knead by hand until dough is smooth, about 10 minutes. After 1 1/2 hours in the bread machine, the dough will be ready for rolling out. Roll out dough to fit pizza pan. Brush with olive oil. At this point, pre-baking the pizza crust is an option but I may try it next time just to see if this will prevent the middle of the crust from getting soggy from the sauce.
Spread the cheesy pizza sauce and evenly lay out the cooked beef slices followed by sliced mushrooms [I used canned but drained well] and sprinkle with chopped parsley and grated cheese. Bake in a preheated 450F oven for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted.
*If not using sourdough starter, use 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup all purpose flour with 1/2 cup water and 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast. Add more water if mixture is too dry.
