This was very tasty! I think next time I might even use more basil. Also, maybe my oven runs hotter than I realized, but I baked both times for the shortest time given and my bottom turned out pretty dark so I'll go a few mins less next time too.

You say "tomato," I say "tomat-Ohhh so delicious!" The fresh ingredients just make this dish. The aroma (from sauteeing the fresh basil and garlic) had my "little grasshoppers" salivating impatiently for lunch! It was great. My only regret was that I didn't have enough fresh basil. Next time, I'll be sure to have extra on hand. Thank you, Marie!

I loved this recipe. I probably should only give it a 4 though because my husband wasn't wild about it, but it was probably because of some changes I made. I chopped the tomato up and I think that made the crust a bit watery, and because I didn't use crescent rolls (I used individual flatbreads), I didn't think I needed to crisp it up ahead of time. Probably wouldn't have it if I hadn't chopped the tomato so fine, though. Overall, though, the flavour was excellent - I may add just a touch of salt next time and possibly increase the basil, tomato, garlic mixture. I also needed to cook it another 10 minutes, but that is also because of the soupy tomatoes - the crust was a big soggy. I will definitely make this again

We used a prepared pizza crust...doubled the basil and doubled the mozzarella...because that's how we like it...and thoroughly enjoyed the gifts from our garden. Thanks Marie!

So easy, but so full of flavor. We have an abundance of fresh, homegrown organic tomatoes, and I used three for this pizza, paired with a green salad (with more tomatoes;) ). I followed the recipe exactly, and the freshness of the tomatoes was so good with the flaky crust & cheese. DH & I really enjoyed this for a quick weeknight meal.

Loved it! Easy and delicious! Didn't have fresh basil so I sprinkled dry basil on the crust before I baked it. Used 4 cloves of garlic (may even use more next time!) and forgot to put the tomatoes between the cheese so they went on top! Excellent regardless! Thanks for an easy delicious recipe!
