Homemade Greek yogurt (no rise) pizza crust, boursin cheese, heirloom tomatoes and fresh herbs, baked until golden and bubbly.

Ingredients

Scale

Pizza Crust:

  • 1 ¾ cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 ½ cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil

Pizza:

  • 4 ounces boursin cheese (with herbs)
  • 3-4 medium heirloom tomatoes, cored and thinly sliced
  • Coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 4-5 sprigs fresh thyme, stems removed

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt and Greek yogurt until a dough ball forms. Transfer to a baking sheet or pizza stone and press into a ¼-inch thick round and brush olive oil over the top.  Bake 5-7 minutes.  Remove from the oven.
  3. Drop clumps of boursin cheese on the crust, then top with slices of tomato and sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bake an additional 10-12 minutes, then turn the oven to a low broil.  Broil 3-4 minutes or until cheese is browned and bubbly.
  4. Let slightly cool, then slice into wedges and top with fresh thyme leaves.

Notes

Cooking Tip: If using a pizza stone, heat the stone in the oven before pressing the dough onto it.  This will create a crispier crust.  Be careful with the hot pizza stone.
