prepared or frozen pizza dough, enough for 2 pizzas
1 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, grated
1/2 cup Grated Parmesan cheese
6 fresh plum tomatoes, sliced 1/2-inch thick
1/2 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 medium-size clove garlic, finely chopped
2 (6 1/2 ounce) cans tuna, preferably packed in oil, drained
20 olives, green or black, pitted and chopped (optional)
3 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed (optional)
2 tablespoons fresh basil, or rosemary, oregano or parsley
freshly ground pepper
olive oil

Position two racks in the oven, one in the bottom third and the other in the center. Heat the oven to 500 degrees.

On a floured surface, roll out half the dough into a 12-inch circle. Transfer the dough to a pizza pan or large baking sheet. Pinch up a 1/2-inch rim around the outside edge of the dough. Repeat with the remaining dough to make another pizza.

Prepare the first pizza in the following sequence: Sprinkle the dough with one-quarter of both the mozzarella and the Parmesan. Arrange half the tomatoes in concentric circles on top of the cheeses. Sprinkle the green beans, onion and garlic on the tomatoes. Sprinkle the vegetables with another quarter of the cheeses. Repeat the procedure with the second pizza and the remaining cheeses and vegetables.

Bake the pizzas for 10 minutes. Switch the positions of the pizzas. Quickly sprinkle the top of each with half the tuna and, if desired, the olives and capers. Bake the pizzas for 5 to 8 minutes more until the crusts are golden brown. Sprinkle each pizza with basil or oregano and season with salt and pepper to taste. Brush the crusts with olive oil, cut into wedges and serve at once.
