The original recipe came from a lady who was hosting a Pampered Chef party years ago. Over the years I have thrown her's out the window for a version that is just right for my tastes. This is a great pizza that even my meat-loving husband and 4 year old daughter enjoy. Please feel free to change up the toppings so that you love it just as much as we do. If you are die-hard meat-lovers you can add some cooked ham or bacon to the toppings.

Great pizza. Our local market has a Friday special on fresh take and bake pizza so I bought a cheese pizza, spooned off the cheese and proceeded to follow the recipe. Simple and delicious. The tomatoes and olive oil really did make a "sauce". Only thing I would change next time is to add some Italian herbs to the tomato layer. Thanks, Melissa.
