Enjoy this Italian-style grilled pizza with two types of cheese, tomatoes and basil pesto – a wonderful dinner ready in just 25 minutes!

Ingredients

1/2
cup basil pesto
1
package (14 oz) prebaked original Italian pizza crust or other 12-inch ready-to-serve pizza crust
2
cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)
3
large plum (Roma) tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1/2
cup whole basil leaves
1/4
cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Brush pesto over pizza crust. Sprinkle 1 cup of the mozzarella cheese over pesto. Arrange tomato slices and basil leaves on cheese. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup mozzarella cheese and the Parmesan cheese.
  • 2 Place pizza on grill. Cover grill; cook over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes or until crust is crisp and cheese is melted. (If crust browns too quickly, place a piece of foil between crust and grill.)

Expert Tips

If you have lots of fresh basil, make your own pesto. Place 2 cups firmly packed basil leaves, 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup pine nuts, 1/2 cup olive oil and 3 cloves garlic in a blender or food processor. Cover and blend on medium speed about 3 minutes or until smooth.
