How To Make It

For Pizza Dough: Preheat oven to 450°. Roll out 1 (1-pound) whole-wheat dough on a lightly floured surface with a floured rolling pin into a 13-inch round or 13- x 12-inch rectangle. Lightly spray a large baking sheet with olive oil; sprinkle with cornmeal. Transfer dough to prepared sheet. Roll up sides 1-inch to form a rim.

Cover dough evenly with olive oil as well. Spread marinara sauce on prepared dough, then top with tomatoes, cooked chopped onion, pepper jack, and crumbled feta. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until crust brown. Sprinkle with chopped fresh oregano and thyme leaves. Cut into 5 slices, and serve. This recipe makes 5 servings and takes around 30 minutes and approximately another 45 minutes to an hour of baking time depending on your elevation.
