Cheese Pizza To Die For!

Tonight I ate this fabulous pizza everyone loved it! It is sooo easy to make and better yet it is only 4 WW points! I'm serious! I pigged out on three pieces and I still have 3 points left! Here is the recipe.
Cheese Pizza
1 (13.8-oz) tube of refrigerated Pillsbury classic pizza crust*
1 small 6-oz can tomato paste (Use the flavor of your choice.) (I used no salt added and for one pizza I used a flavored paste basil, oregano, garlic, I thought that one was too spicy for my taste)
1 packet Italian Spaghetti Sauce Mix (Any brand is fine - McCormick, French's, etc.)
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (Or you can use a five-cheese blend like the one from Kraft which includes low-moisture, part-skim mozzarella, provolone, Romano, Asiaso, and Parmesan cheese) (I used a pizza blend that was low-moisture part skim mozzarella and cheddar)
* Alternately, you can use 1 box Pillsbury Hot Roll Mix, 1 package of refrigerated pizza dough, or any other ready-made pizza crust. These are all roughly the same points value, but please note that the Nutritional Info below is based on the refrigerated 13.8-oz tube Pillsbury pizza crust.
Preheat oven to 400ยบ. Spray or grease cookie sheet or pizza pan. Unroll dough on greased cookie sheet or pizza pan. Press to desired size, shape and thickness. Set aside.Place tomato paste, 6-oz of water (use the paste can to measure), and sauce mix in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring every few minutes with a whisk. Top dough with pizza sauce, cheese, and desired toppings. Bake 10-15 minutes.
Yields: 8 slices

Since I am a pizza lover and my all time favorite food, I will be trying this. Thanks for sharing. You are very dedicated in trying new things. Have you ever tried the Lein Q. spinich alfredo pizza? It is great! Better baked in the oven instead of microwaved.
