recipe ingredients
1 can (10 oz.) refrigerated pizza crust dough
1/3 cup tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons drained capers
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded reduced-fat or part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 to 3/4 cup slivered fresh basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon hot chili flakes

recipe directions
Unfold dough. In a lightly oiled 12 to 14 inch pizza pan or on a 14 by 17 inch baking sheet, pat dough into a 12inch-wide round with a slightly thicker 1/2 inch-wide rim.

Bake crust on lowest rack in a 425*F oven until lightly browned on the bottom, 6 to 8 minutes (5 to 6 minutes in a convection oven). In a bowl, combine tomato paste, 2 tablespoons water, and oregano.

Spread tomato mixture over crust, but not rim. Sprinkle with capers. Drop shredded mozzarella cheese in clusters onto tomato mixture, then sprinkle with parmesan.

Return pizza to lowest oven rack and bake until mozzarella softens, about 3 minutes. Scatter basil leaves and chili flakes over pizza.
