  • 1 12 inch ready-to-use pizza crust
  • 1/2 cup RAGÚ® Homemade Style Pizza Sauce
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
  • 6 fresh basil leaves
  • kosher salt and cracked black pepper, to taste
  • extra virgin olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Place pizza crust on foil-lined baking sheet. Spread sauce evenly over crust to within 1/4 –inch of edge. Top with cheese slices.
  2. Bake 10 minutes. Top with basil. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with oil before serving.

For a BLT Pizza, omit basil and olive oil. Prepare pizza as directed, adding chopped cooked bacon. Top with shredded iceberg lettuce and drizzle with mayonnaise after baking.

Use your Grill:

Top pizza crust with sauce and cheese. Place directly on grill heated to medium-high. Grill 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is browned on bottom. Transfer to cutting board. Top with basil, season with salt and pepper and drizzle with oil.
