Tomato Pesto Pizza

This was seriously the quickest dinner I've made in approximately forever. Of course, I used almost all prepackaged stuff to throw it together, but it was uber-licious. (Note: I'm always allowed to make up words.) But I think it speaks volumes that 1. My kids each had seconds and begged for thirds and 2. There were no leftovers. Yes, next time I'll be making two pizzas.

Tomato Basil Pizza (adapted from Pioneer Woman)
1 tube refrigerated pizza dough
1/2 c of prepared pesto (I used about half of a 10z jar, and it was a little too much)
2-3 medium tomatoes, sliced thin
8 oz fresh mozzarella

Spray cookie sheet lightly with non-stick spray. Spread pizza dough out on cookie sheet. Spread pesto thinly over crust, layer with mozzarella, and finally with tomato slices. Cook according to dough directions.

I have a basil plant in my kitchen that is thriving beyond what I could have thought possible, so next time I'm gonna make my own pesto. I make no promises about the pizza dough, however.
