Caprese Pizza with Basil Pesto

I've always loved the idea of a Caprese- Tomatoes, Mozzarella cheese, and Basil- but I knew that no one in the house but me would eat it! So, when I made basil pesto, I decided to try this combination on a pizza! And, it was so, so good.

Caprese Pizza with Basil Pesto
The Double Dipped Life

1 pizza crust. I used a premade, but you can make your own as well.
1/2 - 1 cup basil pesto. Homemade or store-bought.
Sliced mozzarella cheese
Sliced tomato

I also sprinkled Shirley J's Pizza and Pasta Seasoning on top of the tomatoes.

Spread the pesto on the pizza crust. Top with cheese and tomatoes. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until the cheese is melted, and the tomatoes soft.  Like this:

Enjoy this right away for maximum freshness!
