Pepperoni Pizza

Pepperoni pizza is a classic favorite, and in less than 20 minutes, you can make this light and healthy version. The whole wheat crust has more fiber and nutrients than a white flour crust, and using part-skim mozzarella saves on calories without compromising any flavor.

  • Yield: Makes 6 servings (serving size: 1 slice)
  • Cook time: 12 Minutes
  • Prep time: 5 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup tomato-and-basil pasta sauce
  • 1 (10-oz.) package prebaked whole wheat thin Italian pizza crust
  • 1/4 cup turkey pepperoni slices (about 24)
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) part-skim mozzarella cheese

Preparation

1. Spoon tomato-and-basil pasta sauce evenly over crust, leaving a 1-inch border around edges. Top with half of pepperoni slices. Sprinkle with cheese. Top with remaining pepperoni.

2. Bake pizza at 450° directly on oven rack 11 to 12 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is melted. Cut into 6 slices. Serve immediately.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Boboli 100% Whole Wheat Thin Pizza Crust and Classico Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce.
