Ingredients

  • 4 plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup roasted sweet red peppers
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Romano cheese, divided

Directions

For sauce, place the first 10 ingredients in a food processor; cover and process until blended. Transfer to a small saucepan; heat through.
Meanwhile, press pizza dough into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan; build up edges slightly and seal seam. Bake at 425° for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned.
