Fresh mozzarella and basil, olive oil and tomatoes spell "Margherita" pizza with prized Italian flavors. Mmm!
pouch (6.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ pizza crust mix
oz fresh mozzarella cheese, well drained
can (14.5 oz) fire roasted diced tomatoes, drained
Fresh cracked pepper to taste
cup thin strips fresh basil leaves
tablespoon chopped fresh oregano leaves
tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Heat oven to 425°F. Grease cookie sheet or pizza pan. Make pizza crust as directed on pouch. Press dough into 12-inch circle on cookie sheet or pizza pan, using floured fingers. Press dough from center to edge so edge is slightly thicker than center.
Cut mozzarella into 1/4-inch slices. Place cheese on dough to within 1/2 inch of edge. Arrange tomatoes on cheese. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, 2 tablespoons of the basil and the oregano. Drizzle with oil.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons basil.
You can use 1 tablespoon dried basil leaves for the fresh, but expect the flavor to be different.
You can use preshredded packaged cheese to save time. Expect a slightly different flavor and texture.
