Hodgson Mill’s Tomato-Chili Sauce Pizza with Wheat Cornmeal Crust

Tomato Chili Sauce Pizza with Wheat Cornmeal Crust

Hodgson Mill asked MyLifeRunsOnFood.com to compete in their Build a Better Pizza contest. My response was an happy ‘YES,’ because I love creating pizza with unusual flavors (see Yellow Beet and Parsnip Wheat Pizza , Sweet Potato, Caramelized Shallots, Smoked Mozzarella Pizza with Wilted Arugula , NY Autumn Apple Prosciutto Pizza and Zucchini Tomato Ricotta Pizza . Homemade pizza is more fun and healthier than having a greasy pie delivered to my front door. The only difficulty was the requirement for making a crust with 50% whole-wheat flour. In my experience, that’s a very dense slice of pizza.

Three pizzas were made and only two came out worthy of entering a competition (check out the process to making each pizza entry on my Hodgson Mill’s Build a Better Pizza board Pinterest ). It was a tough decisioncoworkers, the boyfriend and friends were asked to choose. The winner was a wild card pizza inspired with flavors from the southwest–Tomato Chili sauce, mushrooms, Mexican Cotija cheese, salty Kalamata black olives, oregano and a tad of spice. All these ingredients came together on a beautiful wheat cornmeal crust without the dense texture. After the pizza was pulled from the oven, it was topped with baby arugula, cilantro, more oregano, and buttery slices of avocado. As a garnish, watermelon radish was used for it’s lovely vivid pink color, but if it’s unavailable, use the Cherry Belle variety commonly found in most supermarkets.
