Variation
To bake pizzas, heat oven to 375°F. Place pizzas on cookie sheet. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until toppings are warm. Sprinkle basil over pizzas.
Success
Watch pizzas carefully. Each grill heats and cooks differently. If the lowest setting of your grill seems too hot, move pizzas to a cooler part of the grill. You could also turn off a burner if your grill has more than one burner.
How-To
Use a kitchen scissors to easily cut the fresh basil leaves.
