caprese pizza

gone vegan.  purchased pizza dough makes this a fast meal with less than 10 minutes of prep.

yields 8 slices/servings

16 oz purchased pizza dough (I used Trader Joe’s)

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 cup of shredded vegan mozzarella cheese (or 2% mozzarella - same Weight Watchers point value)

2 tomatoes, sliced ¼" thick

salt & pepper

1 teaspoon dried oregano

½ cup fresh loosely packed basil, chopped

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Let dough sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.  Roll out dough until it is almost the size of a standard cookie sheet.  Brush the olive oil on top of the dough being sure to thoroughly coat the ends (this will allow for a flavorful, golden brown crust).  Sprinkle the dough with the cheese and place the sliced tomatoes on top.  Sprinkle with a generous amount of salt and pepper and the oregano.  

Bake until the crust has risen and browned nicely (+/- 15 minutes depending on the oven).  Sprinkle the fresh basil on the finished pizza.
