Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • Basic pizza dough
  • 1 cup fat-free bottled pizza sauce
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

Directions

  1. Position one oven rack in the middle setting. Position another rack in the lowest setting, and place a rimless baking sheet on the bottom rack. Preheat oven to 500°.
  2. Remove plastic wrap from Basic Pizza Dough; discard plastic. Brush olive oil over dough. Remove preheated baking sheet from oven, and close oven door. Slide dough onto preheated baking sheet, using a spatula as a guide. Bake on lowest oven rack at 500° for 8 minutes. Remove from oven.

  3. Spread sauce in an even layer over crust, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Top with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Bake on middle rack an additional 10 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese melts. Cut into 12 wedges.

The most traditional cheese for pizza is mozzarella – that chewy, stretchy, salty classic white cheese. You can also buy fresh mozzarella, which is pure white, very soft and packed in liquid. Instead of grating, cut fresh mozzarella into slices and scatter over the rest of your toppings. 

A delicious homemade cheese recipe that will melt your mouth.
