- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
- 3 large plum (Roma) tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch slices
- 1/2 cup whole basil leaves

Place dough on grill, foil side down. Cook, uncovered, 3 minutes or until bottom of crust is light golden brown. Remove from grill.
- Using wide spatula, flip crust over so uncooked side is down. Brush pesto over pizza crust. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese over pesto. Arrange tomato slices and basil leaves on cheese. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and the Parmesan cheese.
- Place pizza onto grill, foil side down. Cook, covered, an additional 3 to 4 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese begins to melt.
