Ingredients:

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 (16-oz.) package whole wheat pizza dough, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup tomato sauce, no sugar added
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced
  • ¼ cup whole basil leaves, torn in small pieces

Instructions

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450° F.

  2. Lightly coat 12-inch pizza pan with spray. Starting at the center, and moving outward, use your fingertips to press dough to ½-inch thick. Stretch dough until it won’t stretch any further. Let dough relax for 5 minutes; continue to stretch to desired diameter.

  3. Drizzle oil over dough; spread with a pastry brush to the edges.

  4. Spread tomato sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a quarter-inch border.

  5. Layer with cheese, tomato, and basil.

  6. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbling.
