Nonstick cooking spray
frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed according to package directions
prepared basil pesto
shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 (14.5 ounce) can
Hunt’s® Whole Peeled Tomatoes, drained, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
Thinly sliced fresh basil
I like to use fresh tomatoes thinly sliced instead of canned. They overlap on the top of the crust. I have also added thinly sliced onion (think Vadalia or red) and bleu cheese crumbles. I will make this for an upcoming class reunion with all these toppings in strips on a sheet pizza so I need to bake only one, but will have many options on that one.
