Ingredients
  • Pizza dough : Makes dough for 2 thin crust pizzas ( You can freeze one and use later or go ahead and make one thick crust pizza instead)
  • 2¼ teaspoons (1 packet) active dry yeast
  • ¾ cup warm water
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp brown sugar or honey
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup sugar (I like keeping the sauce slightly tangy but if you want it sweeter, go ahead and add more sugar. Once sauce is done, you can taste and add more sugar if you want.)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Oat-Pecan Mix
  • ¾ cup old fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup pecans or any other nut you fancy but NO peanuts
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter,softened
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • Chocolate sauce
  • ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Making Pizza Dough
  2. In a bowl, to warm water dissolve yeast and honey. Let it sit for few mins until it starts to foam. Add both flours,salt,olive oil. Knead until smooth. If it feels too dry, add little bit more water. Add little olive oil in a clean bowl and transfer the ball of dough in there. Wrap with a plastic wrap and let it sit in warm place for good 2-4 hours or until it doubles in size.
  3. Cranberry Sauce
  4. In a deep pot, add all the ingredients. Bring it to a boil and then let it simmer on medium-low for good 15-20 minutes or until most of the cranberries break and you get a medium thick sauce.
  5. Keep it aside.
  6. Oat-Pecan Mix
  7. In a food processor, add all the ingredients and process until you get a crumbly mix, not too coarse and not too fine.
  8. Keep aside.
  9. Assembling
  10. Pre heat oven to 400F.
  11. If making a thick crust, roll out the entire dough. If making a thin crust, roll half the dough and refrigerate the later covered tightly in plastic wrap for later use.
  12. Transfer the rolled out dough to a pizza baking sheet.
  13. Spread the sauce generously all over the rolled out dough.
  14. Sprinkle the oat-pecan mix so it covers evenly.
  15. Bake at 400F for 12-15 minutes.
  16. Chocolate sauce
  17. Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds. Stir it around and if still some pieces of unmelted chocolate left, microwave for another 20 seconds. Stir it again.
  18. Drizzle on the pizza.
  19. Make sure you make chocolate sauce whenever you are serving it as it hardens up sitting if not used up.
Notes
This pizza stays good covered in plastic wrap in refrigerator. You can enjoy it for those rushed up mornings with a glass of milk or coffee/tea.
Make sure you don't overbake the pizza because the oat mix might get burnt. I usually like baking at 400F for around 12 minutes.
