Pesto Pizza for dinner

Recipe #1.  This recipe only requires a few ingredients and it's ready in 10 minutes.  Yes, 10 minutes, people!  And everybody loves it.

1 pizza crust. No, not from scratch in the 10 minutes.  I usually use Mama Mary's - inexpensive and yummy.
1/4 cup pesto (Any kind of basil pesto you like.  My favorite is Alessi Pesto.)
1/2 cup ricotta cheese, lowfat.
1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
1 roma or compari tomato
3 large fresh basil leaves
fresh ground pepper

Preheat oven to 450 (or whatever your pizza crust package says).
Spread pesto on crust, sprinkle with shredded cheese, then add dollups of ricotta.
Reduce heat to 425 and bake pizza for 7 minutes.
While pizza bakes, slice tomatoes and basil.
When your pizza is golden brown and bubbly, remove from the oven and add tomatoes, basil, and pepper.

Mine looked like this.  I thought it was really pretty, especially since it only took 10 minutes!
