Fire up the grill for easy pizza starring prebaked crusts, bacon, garlic-herb cream cheese, tomatoes and basil.
slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
cup garlic-and-herbs spreadable cheese (from 6.5-oz container)
package (10 oz) prebaked Italian pizza crusts (two 8-inch crusts)
large plum (Roma) tomato, cut into 10 thin slices
tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
cup chopped fresh basil leaves
Heat gas or charcoal grill. In 10-inch skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, stirring frequently, until crisp. Drain on paper towel; set aside.
Spread cheese evenly on pizza crusts. Top with tomato and bacon. Drizzle with oil.
Place pizzas on grill over low heat. Cover grill; cook 4 to 8 minutes or until bottoms are deep golden brown and toppings are warm. Sprinkle basil over pizzas. Cut each into 8 wedges.
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.
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.
Use a kitchen scissors to easily cut the fresh basil leaves.
