  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 11 slices part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 small zucchini, cut into 1/8-inch slices, patted dry, divided
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 4 plum tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup torn fresh basil


  1. Sprinkle cornmeal over a greased baking sheet. Unroll pizza crust; shape into a 12-in. square. Place on the baking sheet. Brush with 1 teaspoon oil. Arrange nine slices of cheese over dough to within 1 in. of edges. Cut each remaining cheese slice into four pieces; set aside.
  2. Place half of the zucchini, about 2 in. apart, around edges of cheese. Fold edges of dough about 1 in. over zucchini. Bake at 400° for 6 minutes.
  3. Layer with onion, remaining zucchini and tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 16 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  4. Arrange reserved cheese over the tomatoes; bake 4 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Drizzle with remaining oil. Sprinkle with basil. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
