Six ingredients and 15 minutes are all you need to enjoy this mouth-watering tomato and basil pesto pizza.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Spray crust with cooking spray.

Step 3

Place crust on a baking sheet; bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Spread pesto evenly over crust, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with mozzarella cheese slices and tomato; sprinkle with pepper. Bake at 450° for 5 minutes or until cheese melts and crust is golden. Sprinkle with basil.

Chef's Notes

Fresh mozzarella is easier to slice when it is very firm. Place mozzarella in the freezer just until firm, and thinly slice. Any brand of prebaked pizza crust will work for this recipe.

Absolutely loved this pizza. Perfect for the summer when everything is fresh and in abundance. Used my homemade pesto too!

Love this. So easy. I did use Boboli pizza crust, set the oven to 425 instead of 450. It came out perfectly.

Very good! I used Pillsbury pizza crust cooked at 400 for 6 minutes then followed the remaining directions -cooked at 450 for 6-7 minutes. I also used some shredded mozzarella, some shredded parmesan as well as cut up fresh mozzarella. Yum!
