“Pizza often gets relegated to the junk food category,” says “My Texas Table: 100 Family Favorites Done Light” (H-E-B, $12.49). “Done right, however, it can be nutritious and tasty. Simply use whole wheat crust, low-fat cheese and lots of fresh basil to enjoy America’s favorite Italian pie guilt-free.”
We don’t need to add anything except: Buon appetito.
1 H-E-B 100 Percent Whole-Wheat Pizza Crust
1 tablespoon H-E-B Olive Oil
1 cup H-E-B Marinara Sauce
12 large fresh basil leaves
1 cup sliced or shredded H-E-B Mozzarella Cheese
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Brush pizza crust with olive oil.
Spread marinara sauce on crust. Place basil leaves evenly over sauce, then top with cheese.
Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.
