PIZZA PIZZAZZ

  • Yield 4 servings
  • Prep 10 mins
  • Cook 20 mins

Use any dough or pizza crust mix you like, preparing enough to cover a 12” round pizza pan. You can also use a 13” x 9” oblong pan.

Ingredients

-- Pizza dough or pizza crust mix
1/2 cup finely chopped California walnuts
3/4 cup pizza sauce or tomato-based pasta sauce
1 cup (one 14 ½ oz. can) salt-free peeled, diced tomatoes, drained thoroughly
2/3 cup canned mushrooms, drained
1/4 cup grated fat-free Parmesan cheese
1-1/2 teaspoon dried mixed Italian herbs or oregano

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425F.  Coat a 12” round pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Prepare the pizza dough or crust mix according to package directions, working into it ¼ cup of the walnuts.  On a floured surface, push, pat and roll the dough to a 12” circle, then transfer it to the pan.  Spread with the sauce, then distribute the tomatoes, mushrooms and remaining walnuts randomly over the dough. 
  3. Sprinkle with cheese and herbs.  Bake for 18-20 minutes, until the top is lightly browned and the edges of the crust are crisp.
