  • 1/4 cup Basil Pesto, (two cubes defrosted)
  • 2 precooked store-bought pizza crusts (8 inches)
  • 1 sliced plum tomato
  • 2 ounces grated mozzarella cheese
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spread basil pesto on each of two pizza crusts.

  2. Layer each crust with plum tomato; sprinkle with grated mozzarella cheese. (Or, layer with just cheese, using 3 ounces thinly sliced fresh mozzarella.) Season with coarse salt and ground pepper.

  3. Transfer to a baking sheet; bake until cheese has melted and crust is golden brown, about 10 minutes. Slice, and serve immediately.
