As I have mentioned before, I don’t make pizza very often but when the craving hits, I am obliged to satisfy it. On this occasion, to keep with my theme of brown bread, I thought it apt to make a brown bread base – result: equally as scrumity and just a teensy bit healthier – bargain. 🙂
Brown Bread Pizza Dough, Sauce and Toppings
1 cup brown bread flour
1tsp instant yeast
½ tsp salt
5ml olive oil
½ cup warm water
30ml tomato paste
10ml olive oil
2.5ml dried oregano
1½ cups cheddar cheese or mozzarella cheese grated
2 garlic cloves crushed
4 big white button mushrooms thinly sliced
4 rashers bacon diced
3 pieces spring onion chopped
- Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
- Add the oil and water and mix to combine. The mixture will still be quite sticky.
- Place the dough on a floured surface and gently knead for 5 minutes. You may need to add a little more flour over the top of the dough to prevent it sticking to your fingers.
- Place the dough in a clean bowl and cover with a cloth and set aside in a warm spot until the dough is double in size.
- Lightly punch down the dough and roll it out as thinly as desired directly onto a piece of tin foil which has been sprayed with non stick spray and transfer to a baking tray.
- Preheat the oven to 220°C.
- Spread the tomato sauce over the base followed by the cheese, garlic, mushrooms, bacon and spring onion.
- Sprinkle over the oregano and bake for 10 -12 minutes.
You called mushroom/bacon/cheese a ‘boring’ topping? oh…no…that’s not a fair comment to this delicious pizza. Love brown bread dough as the crust.
Oh I am pleased you like my toppings Angie. I think them boring because I usually always use the same ones. Have a super day. 🙂
I should try this brown bread pizza some time! Love your toppings (and ps you have a typo in your heading) 🙂
I was very pleased with the brown bread base Tandy and thanks for picking up the typo. Have an awesome day. 🙂
Rashers, cheese and mushrooms love this combo. I also like the idea of a healthier crust and thin as I love thin crust pizza, my favorite.
Thanks Bam – absolutely has to be a thin crust! Look forward to hearing about your trip when you get back. 🙂
This is probably the most inviting pizza ever you genius 😀

What an awesome compliment CCU, thank you! Have a super day. 🙂
Hi. What is the measure for the instant yeast? 🙂
Hi Misky, so sorry about that. It is 1 teaspoon of yeast. Enjoy and have a super day. 🙂
Thanks! 😀 I’m going to make this during the week.
Fantastic! I look forward to how you enjoy it. 🙂
I love your toppings! I think your pizza sounds delicious.
Thanks so much Beth! Have a lovely day. 🙂
Nothing boring about your pizza…I think it sounds terrific especially with your brown bread crust.
Thanks so much Karen! Must say, I thoroughly enjoyed the brown breast crust. Have a great afternoon. 🙂
That’s a delicious looking pizza, Mandy – so juicy with a great crust. And it’s healthy? Fantastic. Love how you’ve made your own base xx
Thanks Charlie. I make pizza so rarely that I always seem to make the base. Have a lovely day. 🙂 xo
It’s been a while I make pizza from scratch! Saving this recipe 🙂
I look forward to hearing how you enjoy my recipe Tes. Have a lovely day. 🙂
Mandy – if I was stuck on an island and could only have one food, it would be pizza. Love it and yours looks delicious. Love making scratch pizza.
Hi Tricia, thanks so much for the lovely compliment – tell you what, if I am stuck on the same dessert island as you, I will make you all the pizza you can eat. Have a super day. 🙂
Your crust looks gorgeous Mandy! We’ve been using whole grain flours for a while for pizza crust and I think the trick is to keep it thin – delish!! (Your toppings sound pretty fab to me too – not boring in the least! ;-)).
Hi Kelly, thanks so much! Besides the health benefits, whole wheat flours are so much nicer. Have a lovely day. 🙂
Pizza must be in the air this week. I just made some which also happened to feature…bacon, what else. Lots of cheese, got to love it.
Bacon makes everything better Diane! Bet your pizza was a hit. Have a lovely day. 🙂
Your toppings aren’t boring, love! They’re perfect, as is your pizza! 🙂
Celia, you are so kind, thank you! Have a lovely day. 🙂
I too love your brown bread dough, fantastic idea. Great topping combo, delicious and NOT boring.
Thanks so much Norma, it’s nice to incorporate something a little bit healthier every now and again. Have a beautiful day and hope you have a good harvest day. 🙂
That dough looks like something I want to try soon!
Thanks Ashely, I was thrilled with the result. Have a great day. 🙂
Boring? Are you kidding me? I’m not one for pizza with gourmet toppings or odd combinations. When I want those ingredients, I’ll have them as they were meant to be served and not on a pizza! You can serve this when I visit and I’ll be one very happy guest. 🙂
John, you are too kind, thank you! I have added this pizza to the list for when you visit. Seems you are going to be staying for a while as the list is ever growing. Have a super day John. 🙂 xo
Those are not boring to me, anything with bacon is good 🙂
I love how bacon makes everything better. Have a super day Raymund. 🙂
Never think to make a brown bread base – I bet that was amazing, And I´m with everyone else – perfect toppings!
Aah, thanks Tanya! It was SCRUMITY. Hope all the renovations are going well. Have a lovely day. 🙂
There is no stopping any pizza cravings I have. No stopping. 🙂
If you guys are ever in our neck of the woods Jed, I will gladly make you a pizza. Have an awesome day. 🙂
I haven’t had pizza in forever. What is wrong with me? THIS pizza looks scrumity 🙂 and I love that it’s “a teensy bit healthier” so I won’t feel bad about eating more of it. I’m thinking this might have to be Friday’s dinner. Hubby will love this. Thanks for this recipe Mandy! xo
So pleased you like it Sarah. I am sure you and hubby would thoroughly enjoy it. Have a lovely day. 🙂 xo
Scrumity has become one of my favorite words! I just love it. This pizza looks fantastic. I have the craving at least once a week! 🙂
So glad scrumity has become part of your vocabulary Kristy! Oh my, reckon I get a pizza craving about once every 3 months! Have a super day. 🙂
Keep the door unlocked.
I’m on my way over, Mandy! MMMmmmmmm. Xx
Yippee, I am waiting for you at the door! I will get the wine ready too! 🙂 xo
Hi! Does this make 1 pizza base?
I am so sorry for such a late response! I was unable to connect to the internet until now. Yes, this makes one pizza base. You could always make your bases smaller and get to out of the dough. Thank you for stopping by and have a super day. 🙂
It was super yummy! You just forgot to list the oil in the ingredient list for the dough which caused a bit of confusion on my side. Thank you!
Brilliant, I am so pleased you enjoyed the pizza. Thank you for getting back to let me know how it turned out. So sorry about the oil mishap. Have a wonderful day. 🙂
