Homemade pizza take 50

Tonight I made pizza, I having been planning this all day and thinking about it. I have been working on learning the skills of making homemade pizza for about 6 months now. I know this sounds ridiculous, but it has been such a challenge for me and I'm determined to win.

I started by rolling out some Tj's whole wheat pizza dough that I let rise for 1 hr. I rolled and mostly just stretched it out onto a baking sheet coated with non stick spray and a dusting of whole wheat flour.

I baked it at 450 degrees for 10 min. to cook the dough before adding the toppings.

Once it was baked I added some Tj's pizza sauce, the kind in the refrigerated section which is much better then the kind in a jar. I added diced pre cooked free range chicken breast, zucchini from the family garden, diced tomato, feta, and some herbs.

I topped it off with some fresh basil.
I then baked it for a final 10 min. I actually could have baked it a little longer, the middle could have been a little more done. I am closer to perfecting pizza making, but I think I need to make my own dough. I like the Tj's dough, especially for the convenience. But I need a better dough to really make the best pizza.
