Make this pizza for dinner tonight.

Ingredients

1  14.5-ounce can whole peeled tomatoes, undrained

1/2  teaspoon  dried oregano

kosher salt

1  1-pound package pizza dough (thawed, if frozen)

8 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced, or 4 ounces shredded provolone

8 fresh basil leaves, torn

1 large head romaine lettuce, chopped

1/4 cup  store-bought Caesar salad dressing

1/4 cup (3/4 ounce) grated Parmesan

Directions

1. Heat oven to 450° F. In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, combine the tomatoes and their juices, the oregano, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil.

 2. Reduce heat and simmer, crushing the tomatoes with a wooden spoon, until the sauce thickens, 10 to 15 minutes.

3. Shape the dough into one 12- to 14-inch round and place on a baking sheet. Cover with the sauce and top with the mozzarella.

4. Bake the pizza until the crust is golden brown and crisp, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board.

5. Sprinkle with the basil, slice into wedges, and divide among plates.

6. In a large bowl, toss the lettuce and dressing. Top the pizza slices with the salad and sprinkle with the Parmesan.
