Yummy and so easy with store-bought pesto and pizza crust! I made this with thinly sliced chicken on top of the tomato layer. I also rinsed & dried the tomato slices to remove the seeds so it wouldn't be too soggy. Very tasty - and using sliced tomatoes makes such a nice contrast in textures. A keeper!

A classic margharita pizza to me is pizza crust, garlic, tomato, fresh basil, and mozzarella cheese. I heat minced garlic in olive oil until the garlic is well infused. Brush the garlic oil on a Boboli, top with thinly sliced tomatoes, torn fresh basil leaves, and sliced fresh mozzarella cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Variations are limitless on toppings: spinach, mushrooms, onions, broccoli. Keep it heart healthy by staying away from the pepperoni, sausage, etc.

I first made this pizza for my vegetarian sister and her 2 year old son. They loved it! My husband, who is usually a meat eater, loves it too. I usually use a homeade pizza crust and bake it a few minutes before adding the toppings. Then I bake for about 10 minutes and it comes out great. Definitely a keeper!
