Dr. Caroline's Pizza

Dr. Caroline's Pizza

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Here are the ingredients you'll need:

1 store-bought pizza crust (any will do, but see if you can find one made with whole wheat or brown rice flour)
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup broccoli florets
1/2 cup red pepper
1/2 cup green pepper
2-3 leaves of basil, julienned or cut into small pieces
3/4 cup grated mozarella cheese (part-skim is best)
3/4 cup tomato sauce (the kind in the jar that you use for spaghetti)
1 teaspoon olive oil
a pinch of crushed oregano
a pinch of black pepper

Here's how to make the pizza:

Take the pizza crust out of the box and put it on a plate.

With your clean fingers, spread the teaspoon of olive oil evenly around the crust.

With a spoon, spread the tomato sauce on top of the crust and the oil. Leave a 1/4 inch border all around the pizza, so that when it bakes, the sauce won't drip off the sides.

Next, decorate your pizza with the broccoli, mushrooms, and red and green pepper.

Now, sprinkle the mozarella cheese all over the vegetables, as evenly as possible.

Finally, add the basil leaves, the crushed oregano and the black pepper to the top of the pizza.

Put the pizza on a cookie sheet and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

You'll know that it's done when the cheese starts to turn brown. (If you don't have a cookie sheet, you can just put the pizza directly on the oven rack.)

Don't forget to use oven mitts when you take the pizza out of the oven!

Slice and eat. Buon appetito!
