Ingredients and Preparation

Ingredients Measures
Large tomato, seeded and diced 1
Grated part-skim mozzarella 1 cup
Fresh basil, chopped ½ cup
Olive oil 1 tablespoon
Balsamic vinegar 1 tablespoon
Garlic cloves, minced 2
Refrigerated pizza dough 10 ounces
Grated Parmesan cheese 2 tablespoons

Directions

  1. Combine tomato, mozzarella, basil, oil, vinegar, and garlic cloves in a medium bowl. Let stand 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare grill and coat with cooking spray (or cook on nonstick aluminum foil).
  3. Unroll pizza dough into a 12-inch square and cut into 4 equal pieces. Transfer dough to grill, and grill about 4 minutes, until bottoms are browned. Turn dough squares over, top with tomato mixture (leave a ½-inch border), and grill about 4 more minutes, until cheese is melted and dough is cooked through.
  4. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve.
