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.
