Easy Caprese Personal Pizzas

Ingredients (makes 2 personal pizzas)
1 (8 oz) package Pillsbury crescent rolls
2 teaspoons fresh garlic, minced
1 tablespoon good quality Olive Oil (I like Lucini)
2-3 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, chopped
2-3 roma tomatoes, sliced thinly
1/2 cup shredded Sargento Mozzarella Cheese (more to your liking)
pinch of salt
balsamic vinegar (optional)

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  • Using 1/2 of the crescent rolls, press 4 triangles into a rectangle shape and press seams together firmly. Do the same with the other 1/2 of the crescent rolls, so you have 2 rectangular pizzas.
  • Mix the Olive Oil and Garlic together and brush evenly over both pizzas. Bake in oven for about 4-5 minutes until they just start to brown.
  • Remove from oven and top with tomatoes, Sargento Mozzarella Cheeese, basil, and a pinch of salt. Divide toppings among both pizzas. Drizzle with a little balsamic vinegar if you like.
  • Bake topped pizzas in oven for another 3-4 minutes until cheese melts. Enjoy!
Don, Madison, and I created this recipe years ago, when we were all young :),  we took a family vacation to a secluded mountain cabin in Murphy, North Carolina. It was perfect!

We did some hiking...

Found some interesting critters....


Relaxed on the porch overlooking a peaceful creek...

and made delicious treats in the fully stocked kitchen!

Some folks stopped by to welcome us with some fresh tomatoes and basil straight from their garden, and we decided that called for a pizza night! We went to the grocery (which was miles away!!) and picked up some garlic, olive oil, and our favorite shredded mozzarella. Sargento Cheese melts perfectly every time and tastes so fresh and delish!

Because we were on vacation, we decided to go with an easy crust and picked up some crescent rolls.  Then we headed back to our special retreat and got creative in the kitchen! We ended up with what we crowned as Easy Caprese Personal Pizzas! A wonderful little treat that we enjoy time and time again! I hope you  enjoy this recipe as well! It is fun to make with the family!

Sargento published my recipe in their cookbook! Check it out Sargento CookBook
