  • Extra-virgin olive oil

  2. In a small bowl, mix together the mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, basil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. Put the pizza dough on a baking sheet or pizza stone.
  4. Spread the mix on top of the pizza dough. Add tomatoes and drizzle olive oil.
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  6. Slice and serve!

Tips & Tricks

  • Try using a thin layer of low-fat cream cheese in place of the tomato sauce for a different twist!
  • For a veggie-packed pizza, try topping your pie with sautéed spinach, onions, and mushrooms.
  • If you're looking for a little extra protein, try adding cooked ground chicken to your toppings.
  • If you're feeling adventurous, experiment with different types of cheese. A mix of Mozzarella, Parmesan, and Asiago would be delicious.
