Recipe: Pan pizza for two

Dietitian's tip: Use any variety of herbs on this pizza: cilantro (Mexican), nutmeg (Middle Eastern), oregano (Italian), or rosemary (French). Also try different vegetables, such as green onions, thinly sliced tomatoes, eggplant, hearts of palm, mushrooms or asparagus tips. For variety, try roasting the vegetables first.

Serves: 2


  • 1/2 cup chunky tomato sauce
  • 1 8-inch pre-made whole-wheat pizza crust
  • 1 slice onion
  • 4 slices red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil


Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly coat a baking pan with cooking spray. Spread tomato sauce over the crust. Top with the onion, pepper, mozzarella cheese and basil. Place the pizza on a baking pan and bake until the cheese is melted and golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes.
