Salad Pizza

One Recipe Pizza Dough

1. Place all dry ingredients in bowl of your food processor. Pulse a few times to blend well.

2. With the machine running, add 1 cup of water in a slow and steady stream. The dough should form a ball and the clean the sides of the food processor. If it seems too dry, add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time. The dough is perfect when it is no longer sticky, and feels smooth.

3. Place dough in a large bowl with extra virgin olive oil. Turn dough to completely cover with oil and then cover tightly with plastic wrap and a cloth towel.
