1 (10-ounce) pizza crust (such as Boboli)
3 tablespoons commercial pesto
1 3/4 cups (1/4-inch-thick) slices plum tomato
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


1. Preheat oven to 450°.

2. Place pizza crust on a baking pan and spread pesto on top in a thin layer (may be some bare spots), leaving about a 1-inch border. Arrange tomato slices in a single layer on top, and sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 450° for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
