Ingredients

  • Fresh whole wheat pizza dough Trader Joe's is my favorite - but I'm sure you can find it at any health food store
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 Tsp olive oil
  • 5-6 garlic cloves minced
  • 4-5 Roma tomatoes thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1-5 Tbsp balsamic vinegar add to taste - if you are a huge balsamic fan, put more, if not - put less : )
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced fresh basil

Instructions

  • Spread the whole wheat dough on a pizza pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450 degrees for 5 minutes (until the crust starts to puff up).
  • Brush crust with 1 tsp olive oil, sprinkle minced garlic evenly over the crust.
  • Top with sliced tomatoes until entire crust is covered, leaving a half inch border.
  • Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes (until cheese / crust starts to become golden)
  • Remove from oven, sprinkle pizza evenly with sliced basil. Drizzle balsamic vinegar over pizza. Cut and serve!
  • Sprinkled with basil

Notes

Top Tips For Making This Recipe
  • Use fresh whole wheat pizza dough for best results. To make it low carb, try using a cauliflower pizza crust!
  • Don't use cold dough. Remove dough from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature for 30 minutes before rolling it out.
  • Use fresh Roma Tomatoes. Slice thin, pat dry, and sprinkle with a little salt.
  • Make sure to preheat your oven!
  • Remove from the oven just as the cheese begins to get golden brown.
  • Properly stored, leftover flatbread will last for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.
