2 cups flour
.5 cup semolina flour
.5 cup oat bran
1 cup water
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons yeast

add all ingredients to bread machine pan, knead on the dough setting (about 45 minutes), remove and gently hand-shape into a pizza crust to fit your oven / pan / stone (whatever you're going to bake this on). turn on the oven and set it to 400 degrees once the crust is shaped.

pesto sauce

2 cups fresh basil
1 cup pine nuts (or any fatty-crunchy solid substitute, almonds were used here, and garbanzo beans work in a pinch)
.25 cup olive oil
.25 cup butter
.25 cup salty cheese (parmesan is traditional, we used gorgonzola here)
3 cloves garlic

mix ingredients in food processor (or blender), salt to taste.
