Directions

  1. Preheat a lightly oiled grill to medium. Place crusts on a lightly oiled grill. Cook for 2 min. or until bubbly and rigid. Using tongs, turn crusts over. Divide tomato sauce, cheese and tomato halves between both crusts. Close lid and cook until cheese is bubbling and crusts are golden brown, 2 to 3 min. Before serving, top each pizza with basil. Cut each pizza into six slices and serve.

Tip

We grilled this pizza to mimic the effect of a wood burning oven. To make this recipe indoors, heat a pizza stone in the oven at the hottest setting. Cook pizzas for 5 min., or until cheese is bubbling and crust is lightly browned.
