Recipe Ingredients for Tomato Basil Pizza

2 cup whole-wheat flour
2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons yeast
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups warm water
4 cups crushed tomatoes, unsalted, drained
1 1/3 teaspoons dried basil
1 1/3 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups reduced-fat mozzarella cheese

Recipe Directions for Tomato Basil Pizza

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Lightly coat a 10-inch round pizza pan with cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the flours, salt, sugar and yeast. Add the oil and warm water and mix well.

  3. Turn the dough out onto a generously floured work surface. With floured hands, knead the dough for 1 minute. If dough is too sticky, add flour 1 teaspoon at a time. Gather into a loose ball. Cover dough with plastic wrap and let rest 10 minutes.

  4. In a small bowl, stir together the tomatoes, basil, black pepper and garlic powder.

  5. Roll out dough and press into the prepared baking pan. Spread the tomato mixture over the dough. Top with cheese. Bake until the dough is browned and the cheese is bubbly, about 10 to 20 minutes. Cut the pizza into 8 slices and serve immediately.
