Pizza in a Panic
Low Fat Recipe
Pizza, the ultimate panic food, can be whipped up in no time with an already-prepared pizza crust.
2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1 6-oz. can tomato paste
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1 12-inch partially baked pizza crust, such as Boboli
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded fat free Mozzarella cheese
1-1/2 ounces pepperoni (about 6 slices)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Microwave the mushrooms in a covered 1-quart microwave-safe dish for 2 minutes on high.
Meanwhile, combine the tomato paste, water, garlic powder, onion powder, and Italian seasoning in a small bowl and stir well to blend. Spread the sauce on the partially baked crust and sprinkle with the cheese.
Drain the liquid from the mushrooms and scatter them over the cheese. Top with the pepperoni slices. Bake until the cheese is bubbly and begins to brown at the edges, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve at once.
