Ingredients:

Nonstick cooking spray

1 (16-oz.) package whole wheat pizza dough, at room temperature

2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil

¼ cup tomato sauce, no sugar added

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1 medium tomato, sliced

¼ cup whole basil leaves, torn in small pieces

Preparation:

1. Preheat the oven to 450° F.

2. Lightly coat 12-inch pizza pan with spray. Starting at the center, and moving outward, use your fingertips to press dough to ½-inch thick. Stretch dough until it won’t stretch any further. Let dough relax for 5 minutes; continue to stretch to desired diameter.

3. Drizzle oil over dough; spread with a pastry brush to the edges.

4. Spread tomato sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a quarter-inch border.

5. Layer with cheese, tomato, and basil.

6. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbling.
