Fresh and Simple Pizza

  • Ingredients

  • 1 container refrigerated pizza crust (I like the pillsubry pizza crust classic, 13.8 oz)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 roma (plum) tomatoes, sliced (I use whatever tomato I have in the garden)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese or fresh mozzarella sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Roll out pizza dough, and place on a baking sheet**. Mix mayonnaise, Parmesan, basil, and garlic in a small bowl. Spread mayonnaise mixture on pizza crust; top with sliced tomatoes. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. OR you can switch around the order of the toppings (as seen in photo)
  3. Bake in preheated oven until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly, 15 to 20 minutes(you may have to cook a bit longer if you use fresh mozzarella). Cut into squares to serve.

**I make several small pizzas since I sometimes get uncooked dough in the middle if I make one large one.

I prefer 1/3 c mayo, 1/4 c parmesan and a touch more garlic. I keep the basil amount the same.
