Instead of using plain, white pizza dough; look for whole-wheat pizza dough in the refrigerated section. Also, instead of making a large pizza, try making individual pizzas using whole-wheat pita bread or tortilla shells (if you like a thinner crust). This would be a great way to get kids involved with making their own and enjoying vegetables!
1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 (10-inch) Basic Pizza Dough or refrigerated pizza dough
6 very thin tomato slices
3-oz buffalo mozzarella, cut into small pieces
3 Tbsp torn, fresh basil
