Place dough into pan. Top with the following.
1 cup fat free cheese or combo. fat free and reduced fat
(I know we don't use regular cheese, but I feel
I need to report the recipe accurately for the nutrition
information to make sense. Don't be mad please.)
1 cup pizza sauce (Ragu is pretty low in sodium)
fresh chopped basil
4-5 cups fresh vegetables, i.e., thinly sliced tomatoes, zucchini,
muschrooms, onion, grean, red and yellow peppers, artichokes (not canned
in oil) or any veggie you prefer.
Top pizza with the fat-free cheese, Cover with sauce, basil and veggies
Bake for 10 to 14 minutes or until the crust is crisp and brown.
Yields 8 slices
This pizza was great! It was not soggy and it was quick. Mary said the
secret is in covering the ff cheese, slicing the veggies thin, and baking
it at a high temp.
I loved it. The class voted this there favorite dish of the night.
