Pizza with Fresh Tomatoes and Basil

I found this recipe on 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


  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1 (1/4 oz.) pkg. active dry yeast
  • 1 cup very warm water, 115 degrees F.
  • 1 1/2 cups oat bran flour
  • 2 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • oiled baking sheet


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)
