Ingredients:

1 package of favorite pizza dough (try whole grain dough – healthy!!!)
1 can low-sodium pizza sauce
1 cup low-fat shredded cheese (try blending different cheeses.)
1 cup sliced mushrooms
½ cup green bell pepper, diced
½ cup red bell pepper, diced
½ cup red onion, diced
1 cup spinach, washed, torn into pieces
Canadian bacon, chopped into bite size pieces (optional – adds protein)
Fresh chopped basil (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. Let dough rise in a bowl, covered with a dish towel for about an hour to bring it to room temperature (or set out on the counter while you are at work)
  3. Spray cooking sheet, or pizza pan, with cooking spray
  4. Spread dough onto pan with hands or a rolling pin (add a bit of flour if it is too sticky)

  10. Sprinkle fresh basil, if desired
