Dinner Last Night! Yummy!

This was so yummy! I think next time I might leave off the Ricotta Cheese. It really seemed to have no flavor anyways. BTW, I used fresh garlic! It is also a great way to get in some of your 2 teaspoons of healthy oil! Oh and mine does not look white because I used a mixed low fat pizza cheese.
White Pizza
1 (13.8-oz) tube of refrigerated Pillsbury classic pizza crust (found by crescent rolls/premade cookie dough) *
1 Tb olive oil
garlic powder or minced fresh garlic (to taste)
1/2 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
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)
* 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 my 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. (I use a 13-inch "thin crust" pizza pan)Unroll dough on greased cookie sheet or pizza pan. Press to desired size, shape and thickness. Brush dough with olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic. Top with mozzarella cheese and dollops of ricotta cheese.Bake 10-15 minutes.
Yields: 8 slices

Lorie, I was thinking the toppings might be good on top of a whole wheat pita bread of course I would have to adjust it and refigure the points. The WW pita would be healthier than the tube of refrigerated Pillsbury classic pizza crust. I'm going to give it a try, I thought I the kids could make their own pizza on the pitz bread.
