Stovetop Pizza

Making your own pizza is a satisfying accomplishment. This delicious version uses fresh tomatoes and less cheese than most. You can bake these pizzas on cookie sheets in a preheated 425 degree oven instead of cooking them on the stovetop. Enjoy with this tri-color salad on the side.

Makes three 10-inch pizzas

Pizza Dough

  • 1 cup warm water
  • ½ tsp baking yeast
  • 1 tsp honey
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1¾ cups unbleached white flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt

Pizza Toppings

  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 5 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • ½ red bell pepper diced
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil leaves
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil


Make the pizza dough

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the warm water and yeast. Let sit 2 to 3 minutes, until the yeast is dissolved. Stir in the honey and whole wheat flour.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir together the white flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the whole wheat mixture, stirring to form a rough dough.
  3. On a clean, lightly floured work surface, knead the dough for 1 to 2 minutes, until smooth.
  4. Cover the dough and let it rise while you prepare the pizza toppings.

Prepare the pizza toppings

  1. In a small bowl, combine the cheeses. In another bowl, combine the tomatoes, bell peppers, basil, salt, pepper, and olive oil.

Make the pizzas

  1. Divide the dough to make 3 equal balls. On a clean, lightly floured work surface, roll each ball into a circle that is 10 inches in diameter.
  2. Heat a 12-inch skillet or griddle over medium high heat until it is hot.
  3. Transfer the rolled pizza crust to the skillet or griddle and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Turn the dough.
  4. Spread one third of the tomato mixture on top of the cooked side of the dough to make an even layer. Top with ¼ cup of the cheese mixture.
  5. Cover the pan and continue to cook the pizza until the toppings are hot and the bottom of the crust is golden brown, about 5 to 8 minutes.
  6. Remove the pizza to a cutting board and cut into wedges to serve. Repeat this process to make 2 more pizzas.
