Top a prebaked pizza crust with tomato, cheese and herbs for an Italian favorite that's ready in less than 30 minutes.
Updated Dec 15, 2009

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1 package (14 oz) prebaked original Italian pizza crust (12 inch)
  • 1 medium roma (plum) tomato, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup finely shredded Italian cheese blend (4 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. In small bowl, mix garlic, oil and oregano; brush over pizza crust. Top with tomato, basil and cheese.
  • 2
    Cover and grill over medium-low heat 7 to 9 minutes, moving pizza around grill every 2 minutes to prevent bottom from burning, until cheese is melted.
  • 3
    Cut pizza into 36 squares. Serve immediately.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Finely shredded mozzarella cheese can be used instead of the Italian blend.
  • tip 2
    To bake the pizza, heat oven to 450°F. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 8 to 10 minutes.
