Ingredients:

  • 1 cup warm water (100°F to 110°F), divided
  • 5.4 ounces bread flour (1 1/4 cups)
  • 5 ounces white whole-wheat flour (about 1 1/4 cups)
  • 1 (1/4-oz.) envelope active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 Japanese eggplant, cut into 1/4-in.-thick slices
  • 1 cup thinly sliced zucchini
  • 1 cup thinly sliced yellow squash
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup jarred pizza sauce
  • 2 cups chopped fresh spinach
  • 5 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 1 1/4 cups)

Instructions:

  1. Place 3/4 cup warm water in the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment. Add flours; mix on medium speed until combined, about 20 seconds. Cover, and let mixture stand 20 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, mix yeast and remaining 1/4 cup water; let stand until bubbly, about 5 minutes. Add yeast mixture, 1 tablespoon oil, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to flour mixture; mix until a soft dough forms. Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray; place plastic wrap coated with cooking spray directly on surface of dough. Chill 24 hours.
  3. Let dough stand 1 hour, covered, until dough reaches room temperature. Place dough on a lightly floured surface; roll into a 14- x 11-inch rectangle. Press dough into bottom and partially up sides of a 13- x 9-inch metal baking pan coated with cooking spray.
  4. Place a baking sheet in oven on bottom rack. Preheat oven to 450°F. (Do not remove baking sheet while oven preheats.).
