Flour Pot Pizza (Picnic)

The small clay flower pots made perfect bakeware for these individual pizza breads.  Our picnic menu featured:

Pizza Bread with Olives & Mozzarella
Lemon Zested Tuna with Vegetables
Over Assorted Farmers Greens
Fresh Grapes

I only used 1/3rd of the dough I made for these 2 pizza breads, and froze the rest to thaw and shape later.

Pizza Dough

(6 Servings)

Mix 1/2 cup each flour, yeast and sugar in bowl of electric mixer.  With dough hook in place, gradually add warm water.  Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.  Turn speed to low.
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoon rapid rise yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup warm (125 F) water 
Add whole grain cornmeal, salt and oils.  Beat for 2 minutes.  Slowly add remaining flour, kneading with dough hook for approximately 10 minutes until dough leaves side of bowl.
1/2 cup whole grain cornmeal
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon olive oil

Turn dough into a bowl greased with olive oil spray.  Cover and let rise until double.

Punch dough down.  Divide in thirds.  (At this point, I froze 2/3 of the dough to thaw and shape later).

Roll dough piece on a floured surface to a rectangle, about 6 X 9.  Brush dough with marinara sauce.  Sprinkle with olives, oregano and cheese.
2 Servings Filling
2 tablespoon marinara sauce
1/4 cup chopped green olives, stuffed with sun dried tomatoes 
2 tablespoon fresh snipped oregano
1/3 cup fresh mozzarella cheese, shredded
Roll dough tightly from the short end.  Cut in half.  Place pizza roll in a small clay pot, greased with olive oil spray.

Bake at 400 F. for 20 minutes.  Cool on wire rack. 

To 1 can of albacore tuna (canned in water, drained), I added 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest, 2 tablespoons garlic scapes, 2 radishes, 1/4 cup tomatoes,  2 stuffed green olives, and 2 tablespoons celery.  All the vegetables were minced.  The 1 can of tuna made about 4 servings.

Our picnic was at Coopers Rock State (WV) Forest in the rock city area. (not far from home)
