Pesto and Mozzarella Pizza

If you want a quick, but still delicious lunch for one or two people, then this is a perfect idea.  I like to make this pizza for myself for lunch.  I usually have two pieces and leave the other two for later.  You might think that I would get to eat the other half for lunch the next day, but someone else always eats it before then.

Start with a 6.5 oz packaged pizza dough mix.  Prepare the dough according to the directions.  Be sure to go ahead and preheat the oven to the temperature indicated on the package.  Grease a 9 inch cake pan.  Press the dough into the cake pan.  Spread 2 teaspoons of olive oil over the top of the dough.  Then, spread 3 generous tablespoons of pesto over the dough.  If you feel the need to, add more pesto.  Follow with half a cup of mozzarella cheese.  Place the cake pan of dough in the oven for 7 to 8 minutes depending on your oven and the directions on the package.  I find that the amount of time usually recommended is entirely too long for my oven so pay attention because it won’t take long to accidently burn the pizza.  Remove from oven and cut into four slices.  Eat the entire thing by yourself or share with a friend.
