Thats Amore

Whats better than Pizza? not much! Dont we ALL love pizza? and how many kinds of pizza are there? Thin crust, Chicago, Sicilian, Grandma's, square, sauce, no sauce, veggies, cheese...I could go on and on. I decided this morning to take the Boboli 100% whole wheat pizza shells out of the freezer. There was some fresh mozzarella, gorgeous garden tomatoes and a big pot of fresh Basil in the yard. MMmmmm Pizza. Placing a piece of parchment paper on my half sheet pan, I placed the boboli shell on top. I took one large clove of garlic and crushed it. I rubbed the crushed clove all over the pizza shell. I sliced the tomatoes nice and thin placing them all around the shell. Grabbing a large bunch of fresh Basil from outside, I ripped it off the stems and sprinkled it all over the tomatoes. SLicing the fresh mozzarella cheese as thin as I could, I placed it over the tomatoes and basil. I did not cover the entire shell in cheese, just enough to melt nicely. Some fresh cracked black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil ( about 1 TBS for the whole shell ) to finish it off. In a preheated 400 degree oven for about 20 min. until the cheese is bubbly but not browned. Remove from oven and let sit for a minute or so to allow cheese to settle before slicing. A couple of slices and a nice salad is a great fast and easy dinner. I am hoping in the future to calculate calories and carbs for the recipes I post. A healthier way to eat pizza...I know when I was on WW last year, it was about 6 points for a third of the boboli shell. Mom and her hubby loved it. She of course had a glass of wine and was lookin pretty happy. Of course she forgot to take a picture of the pizza when it was done cooking so I can only post the before pic. LOL. I guess it smelled good and she was hungry! Next time....and Remember...Life is full of Tasty Morsel's!
