White pizza is by far my favorite. I don’t know what it is, but I really don’t like marinara sauce on my pizza. If anything, I’ll use pesto instead. That being said, pizza isn’t exactly the healthiest…unless you make it healthy! Check out this fabulous recipe from Cooking Light: (although I would opt for whole grain crust instead of cheese flavored)
1 (10-ounce) Italian cheese-flavored thin pizza crust (such as Boboli)
1 teaspoon cornmeal
3 tablespoons refrigerated pesto with basil (such as Buitoni)
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded fresh mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1/2 cup sliced small tomatoes (such as Campari tomatoes) $
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup small basil leaves
Crushed red pepper (optional)
1. Preheat broiler to high.
2. Place a baking sheet in oven; heat for 10 minutes.
3. While baking sheet heats, place crust on another baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal. Lightly coat crust with cooking spray. Spread pesto evenly over crust, leaving a 1-inch border; sprinkle mozzarella evenly over pesto. Dollop ricotta, by teaspoonfuls, evenly over mozzarella. Slide crust onto preheated baking sheet, using a spatula as a guide. Broil 5 inches from heat for 5 minutes or until cheese begins to melt. Remove from oven; top evenly with tomatoes, black pepper, and basil. Sprinkle with red pepper, if desired. Cut into 8 slices.”
