Prep time: 20 minutes.
Cook time: 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Flour
  • 2/3 cup sun-dried tomato spread
  • 12 oz. fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 450°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Divide dough into 2 equal portions and roll each into a fairly thin oval on a lightly floured board (about 10 x 14-inches). Place on prepared baking sheets and spread a thin layer of sun-dried tomato paste onto each. Top with cheese then bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until crust is golden brown. While pizza bakes, toss together tomatoes, oil, lemon juice and garlic in a medium bowl. Spoon onto cooked pizzas and cut into squares; sprinkle with basil.
