Half recipe Gluten-Free Pizza Crust
2 cups bottled marinara sauce
3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 tsp. dried oregano leaves
1/4-1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
15 fresh basil leaves, stemmed
8 cups mixed salad greens
16 cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup diced red onion


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. If not already done, rub a large baking sheet with 1 tsp. of olive oil; set aside.
  2. On parchment paper, roll out the pizza dough into a 1/4-inch-thick circle. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet by lifting the parchment paper and flipping the dough onto the baking sheet; peel off the parchment paper.
  3. Top the dough with the marinara sauce and sprinkle with the cheese. Sprinkle the dough with the oregano leaves and, if desired, crushed red pepper flakes.
  4. Bake the pizza for about 14 minutes, until the edges are golden brown. Add the basil leaves and cook for about 1 minute more.
  5. Cut the pizza into eight pieces. Serve each slice of pizza with 1 cup mixed salad greens, 2 cherry tomatoes, and 1 Tbsp. diced red onion.
