Friday = Pizza

Friday night, it’s pizza night! I bought so many Pillsbury pizza doughs when they were on sale and I had coupons, I must use them up! You can use any type of pizza dough though, even a prebaked crust like Boboli. Pillsbury crust is fairly low in calories, only 160 for 1/6th of the pizza. Again, I’m using tomato paste instead of a sauce because I love the concentrated flavor.
Happy Friday!

Mediterranean Pizza

1 pizza dough ball or crust
2 tbsp. corn meal
1 5 oz. can tomato paste, Italian style
½ red onion, sliced
10 green olives, sliced
½ 15 oz. can artichokes in water, drained and chopped
1 red bell pepper, sliced (roasted or fresh)
6 slices prosciutto, cut in strips
½ cup feta cheese crumbles (I use fat free sun-dried tomato)
1 ½ cups shredded 2% mozzarella cheese
1 tsp. Penzey’s pizza seasoning

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.Place dough on a baking sheet sprinkled with corn meal. This isn’t necessary, but adds a nice crunch to the bottom. Using a small spatula, spread the tomato paste over the pizza. Top with the 2 kinds of cheese, then with the onions, artichokes, olives, red pepper and finally the prosciutto and seasoning. I like the prosciutto on top so it gets crispy. Bake for 15 minutes or so.
