Have a pizza night at home with this time-saving pizza recipe. The trick is to purchase pre-made dough. For a lighter meal, enjoy half a pizza with a tossed salad drizzled with fresh lemon juice and olive oil.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°. Shape Pizza Dough ball into a 6- to 8-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. (Dough doesn't need to be perfectly round.) Place dough on a piece of parchment paper. Fold up edges of dough, forming a 1-inch border. Brush oil evenly over dough using a pastry brush. (If you don't have a pastry brush, drizzle oil evenly over dough.)

Step 2

Cover pizza dough circle loosely with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 3

Heat pizza stone or heavy baking sheet 10 to 12 minutes in oven.

Step 4

Remove and discard plastic wrap from dough. Layer tomato and next 3 ingredients evenly. Sprinkle with pepper. Carefully transfer dough on parchment paper to pizza stone.

Step 5

Bake at 450° for 10 minutes or until crust is golden.

Chef's Notes

Bake pizza on a pizza stone or heavy baking sheet that withstands high baking temperatures. (High heat makes the crust crispy.)
