Range-Top Margherita-Style Pizza

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes

Serves: 2

Toasted whole wheat bread is seasoned with oregano and topped with tomatoes, melted mozzarella and fresh basil for an impromptu classic "pizza".


2 slices Pepperidge Farm® Whole Grain 100% Whole Wheat Bread
1/2 tsp. dried oregano leaves, crushed
2 medium plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
2 oz. mozzarella cheese, cut up
6 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced


Spray the top of each bread slice with vegetable cooking spray and sprinkle with the oregano. 

Heat a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the bread slices, oregano-side down, and cook until they're lightly browned. Turn the bread slices over.

Top the bread slices with the tomatoes and cheese. Cover and cook until the cheese is melted. Sprinkle with the basil.

Easy Substitution: Also delicious with Pepperidge Farm® Whole Grain 15 Grain Bread.

Serving Suggestion:  Serve with a chilled salad of cooked brown rice, chopped cucumbers and olives in a light red wine vinaigrette.  For dessert, serve fresh fruit topped with light whipped topping and chopped walnuts or pecans.
