If you like crispy center crusts then prebake the crust according to package instructions.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (12 inch) pre-made uncooked pizza crust
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
  • 3 medium Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) mozzarella, shredded, or more to taste
  • 6 large fresh basil leaves, julienned

Directions:

Combine olive oil, the 2 chopped basil leaves, tomatoes, garlic, and salt in bowl and set aside for 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend.

Preheat oven according to package instructions.

Sprinkle the crust with half of the cheese, evenly top with tomato mixture and then top with remaining cheese.

Bake according to package instructions or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly.

Remove from oven; evenly sprinkle with the 6 julienned basil leaves, slice and serve.

I found this recipe on foodnetwork.com and it's the best pizza recipe I've ever made. Since the website didn't have a photo, I snapped a photo prior to baking.

I substituted my own pizza crust recipe as follows:

Oat Bran Pizza Crust

Ingredients:

Directions:

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Allow to rest for 5 minutes. Stir in 1 1/2 cup unbleached Flour, sugar, salt, olive oil, and 1 cup Oat Bran Flour. Knead in remaining 1/2 cup Oat Bran Flour. This takes about 5 minutes, the dough will be smooth and elastic.

Spray a medium-sized bowl with no stick cooking spray. Place pizza dough in bowl and turn to coat thoroughly. Cover and allow it to rise in a warm, draft-free place for 15 minutes. Roll out dough to fit 14- inch baking sheet. Oil baking sheet and carefully place pizza dough.

Garlic And Herb Pizza Dough: Add 2 teaspoons dried basil, oregano, or rosemary leaves and 1 clove minced garlic along with dry ingredients.

I also make my own pizza crust. I use 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white flour.

My son doesn't know the difference. Instead of oiling my pizza pan I use pam spray (less calories)
