First Post

Hello blog world!  I have been reading amazing healthy living blogs for a while and am so excited to start my own.  I figured for my first post, I might as well start with a recipe!

*Red Pepper and Mushroom Pizza*

This dough has the perfect texture and the veggies and ooey-gooey cheese make for the perfect toppings.

8 Servings


  • 2 cups flour all-purpose flour (or whole wheat, or a mixture)
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 – 1 cup chopped baby bella mushrooms (depending on preference)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. To make the dough, combine flour and yeast in a large mixing bowl.  Blend in water, olive oil, and honey.  Stir by hand vigorously until everything is well mixed.  Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 30-60 minutes.
  3. Place dough on greased baking sheet.  Press dough to cover entire baking sheet.
  4. Top dough with tomato sauce, red pepper, mushrooms, and cheese.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and the cheese has melted.
    My slices, post-bake

    I really hope you guys try this recipe because it is a winner and the crust is really easy to make.

    I cannot wait to expand my blog and connect with the community of amazing bloggers out there.  Thanks for checking mine out!
