  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Whole wheat flour 4 Cup (64 tbs)

  Shredded cheese 12 Ounce (Made Of Soy Or Rice With No Casein)
  Olives 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Mushrooms 5 , sliced (About 1 Cup)
  Bell pepper 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), sliced
  Spinach 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Basil 12
  Yellow squash 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), sliced
  Plum tomatoes 3 , sliced

  Parsley 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), minced

Directions

For the Pizza Crust:
Dissolve yeast in water and agave nectar. Add oil, salt, soy flour and 1 cup flour. Mix. Add flour until dough pulls from side of bowl.
Turn out on counter top and knead, adding flour until it won’t absorb any more. Roll into a ball.
Pour about 1 tablespoon of oil into the mixing bowl: coat dough on all sides with oil; cover with towel and let it rise for about an hour; it will double in size.
Punch down the dough and place it on a cookie sheet. Flatten the dough, pushing it firmly but gently so as not to tear, until it fills the whole sheet. Make the edges just a little thicker so sauce won’t seep out.
The Pizza Toppings:
Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the dough. Sprinkle with 3/4 of the cheese. Add your choice of vegetables. Add the remaining portion of cheese on top. Let the pizza sit for 10-15 minutes to give the crust a chance to rise a little more.
Place the pizza in a 400 degree oven for 30-40 minutes. The crust should be golden brown and the cheese melted. Let it set for 3-5 minutes, cut and serve.
For the Salad:
Slice the tomatoes and cucumbers. Arrange on a plate. Sprinkle parsley, salt and olive oil on top.
