Mama Jen’s Friday Night Pizza
You know how I’m always talking about the 80/20 rule? Well, pizza is definitely a treat food but you gotta have balance right?
Many of you have asked me how to make a healthier pizza so here it is!
1 fresh whole wheat pizza dough from TJ’s
2 cubes of frozen chopped garlic from TJ’s – fresh is fine too
2 cubes of frozen chopped basil from TJ’s – fresh is fine too
1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1 cup of shredded mozzarella
1/4 cup of chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup of chopped mushroom
4 slices of good quality prosciutto
1/4 cup of Kalamata olives chopped
3 tblsp of graded parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Let dough sit out for 20-25 minutes on a floured board. Roll out dough with a roller or you can use your hands. Prepare a cookie sheet with a little olive oil spread around. Place dough onto cookie sheet.
Melt garlic and basic cubes in the microwave for about 20 seconds and add 1/4 cup of olive oil.
Use a spoon to spread around garlic and basil mixture on top of pizza.
Add mozzarella cheese, then prosciutto slices, red bell peppers, mushrooms, olives and top off with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes until dough is crisp on the outside and cheese is slightly browned on top.
