Recipe Ingredients for Pepperoni Polenta Pizza

3 oz. (1/2 cup) instant plain polenta
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup thinly sliced onion
1/4 cup diced green bell pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup prepared marinara sauce
30 grams (10 slices) reduced-fat pepperoni
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat (part skim) mozzarella

Recipe Directions for Pepperoni Polenta Pizza

  1. Preheat oven to 450°. For crust, bring 2 1/4 cups water to a boil. Whisk in polenta and salt. Reduce heat and whisk 3 to 5 minutes or until thick. Pour into a 9" pie plate or cake tin, cover with plastic wrap and put in fridge to chill to room temperature.

  2. Meanwhile, sauté onion and pepper with oil in a nonstick skillet until onion is soft, about 2 minutes. Pour marinara sauce over crust. Add onion, pepper, pepperoni, and oregano; salt and pepper to taste. Bake 8 to 10 minutes.

  3. Sprinkle cheese on top and cook 2 more minutes or until cheese melts. Cut into 6 slices; serve immediately.
