1 (1 lb.) frozen bread loaf, thawed (or make your own)
1/2 of a 16 oz. jar Ragu light spaghetti sauce (or Healthy Choice)
1 2-cup package shredded mozzarella cheese (mozzarella is part skim cheese)
1/2 recipe of prepared Low Cal "Italian" Sausage
1 small can mushrooms
chopped onions
chopped green pepper
garlic powder

Let bread rise once. "Punch" it down. Spray 15" pizza pan or a big cookie sheet with Pam vegetable spray. Spray a little on the bread dough & spread it out to fit the pan - turning it once of twice helps stretch it.

Mix meat with sauce. Spread to the edges of the dough.

Sprinkle lightly with garlic powder & oregano. Add the vegetables, but not the cheese.

Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes - Remove pizza from oven & spread the cheese on it. Continue to bake for another 10-15 minutes until bread is brown & cheese is melted.

For a "double cheese" pizza I sometimes sprinkle a small amount of Kraft grated parmesan cheese before putting it in the oven the first time. The parmesan adds a nice strong, cheesy flavor.

I usually prepare 1 jar of sauce & 1-1/2 lbs. meat, then freeze half for the next pizza binge.
