1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil), chopped
1 15-oz. can Great Northern or Navy beans, drained
2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1 10-oz. thin crust pre-made pizza crust (such as whole wheat "Boboli")
1 cup shredded fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup shredded, reduced-fat, Mozzarella cheese
Directions:
1 Preheat oven to 425 F.
2 Place sun-dried tomatoes in a small bowl and pour boiling water over them enough to just cover and let stand for 10 minutes to soften them. Drain well then chop into thin strips.
