Caprese Pizza

1 T. olive oil
3 T. pizza sauce
1 pre-made whole wheat or white pizza crust (12-14 ounce size)
8 ozs. fresh mozzarella cheese
2 T. balsamic vinegar
3/4 of 12-oz. jar of diced tomatoes (with olive oil and garlic)
2 T. chopped, fresh basil leaves

Preheat oven to 425°. Mix olive oil with pizza sauce and spread onto pizza crust. Cut mozzarella cheese into 1/4-in.-thick slices. Place mozzarella in a small bowl and coat with balsamic vinegar. Chop tomato into 1/4-in. pieces and lay on a paper towel to soak up excess liquid.

Arrange tomatoes in concentric circles around the crust. Sprinkle the basil and lay the mozzarella pieces on top, making sure all ingredients are evenly distributed around the crust. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until desired crispness.
