and since I recently started cooking with coconut oil, I decided to substitute all oil and grease with it.

Ingredients list -

PIZZA DOUGH
:
dry -
3 1/2 cups of unbleached all-purpose flour
1 pkg. active dry yeast, fast rising
3/4 tsp. salt
wet -
1 1/4 c. hot water (80-100F)
2 tsp. honey
1 tbsp. of coconut oil

For the Cooked spinach:
1 tsp of coconut oil
1 1/2 bags of fresh baby spinach
Make:
2 cups of cooked spinach

For the cooked artichokes:
1 can of artichokes
2 garlic (diced)
1 tsp of coconut oil
Make:
2 cups of cooked artichokes

Step 1: Make the dough...

For the dough:

Need:

DRY INGREDIENTS
3 1/2 cups of unbleached all-purpose flour
1 pkg. active dry yeast, fast rising
3/4 tsp. salt

WET INGREDIENTS
1 1/4 c. hot water (80-100F)
2 tsp. honey
1 tbsp. of coconut oil

FOR ROLLING:
You will need:
1/4 cup of cornmeal
1 tbs of ground coffee
Combine...and use for rolling.

Whisk dry ingredients together.   Mix wet ingredients together.  This will give the most even ingredient distribution to create a pizza dough with a perfect mixture.  Note that the coconut oil is solid at room temperature.  Since yeast will be used, I recommend the hot water remains below 100F.

Step 2: Making the dough ball

Mix the wet and dry ingredients together and with your hands knead until the mixture becomes uniform.  Sprinkle small amounts of flour in the large bowl while mixing.  Knead until the dough is no longer sticky and you can form a ball.

Set aside and let rise for 30 minutes.

During the down time, you will create the spinach artichoke dip.

This is now my favorite pizza ever. Prior to this, it was the deep dish spinoccoli from some place in Chicago I forget now. One slice is a day's sustenance!

Actually I got this idea after having tried my first deep dish ever in Chicago this year, and combined it with my love for spinach artichoke dip. It tastes good after freezing and reheating too!
Mmmmmmm Definitely going to try this one :-)
