Tomato-Basil Pizza

Last night I made Tomato-Basil Pizza. I found the recipe over at The Pioneer Woman Cooks (I love her recipes!). It was SOOO good and easy too.

First you make your favorite pizza crust. I made my regular pizza dough except that I used olive oil instead of regular vegetable oil.

Then you spread some prepared pesto (but don't get too happy with it like I did) on the crust and sprinkle it with some kosher salt. Top with sliced fresh mozzarella, then thinly sliced tomatoes (we finally have some ripe), and finally sprinkle with grated Parmesan. Bake according to the directions for your crust. I bake mine at 450 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.

Mine doesn't look quite as pretty as The Pioneer Woman's, (a little too much pesto and not quite enough cheese) but it tasted absolutely great, if I do say so myself. :)
