Quick Veggie Pizza

Of course this is semi-homemade and very low in calories...

Nick and I were really hungry and our snack of popcorn just didn't suffice. So I set out to make this pizza. It wasn't really what we were craving, but once I finished I wanted more! This recipe makes 8 slices and comes in right under 160 calories per slice. I know, you're welcome!

1 packet of pizza crust mix
1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
1/2 cup HOT water
1 can of diced tomatoes with added basil, oregano and garlic
dashes of garlic
dashes of parsley
dashes of Italian seasoning
dash of oregano
1 medium green pepper
1/4 yellow onion
1/4 small can black olives
1/2 pack of shredded mozzarella
1/4 pack of taco seasoned shredded cheddar cheese

1. Follow instructions on the crust packet. Preheat oven to 475F. You will end up mixing (with a fork) 1/2 cup of HOT water with the crust mix. Then brush with your 1 tsp of oil. Let stand for 5 minutes.

2. While your crust is rising for 5 minutes on a medium skillet over medium heat add the diced tomatoes and all the dashes of seasoning. Stir occasionally so as not to stick.
*I know that I don't give you a certain amount of seasonings because, like I have said in prior posts, each individual has their own likings so season to your preference.

3. Now spread crust onto a pizza pan. Gently poke with the prongs of a fork and stick in the oven at 475F for 9 minutes.

4. While you're allowing your crust to bake and your tomatoes to simmer chop onions and pepper.

5. Take your crust out and turn the oven temperature down to 375F. Spread your tomatoes on top, add all your veggies and top with cheese. You can even top that with more parsley, garlic seasoning, oregano and Italian seasoning. Bake at 375F until veggies are cooked and cheese is melted.

Slice and enjoy with a salad.
