  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Arrange tomato slices on a few sheets of paper towels to absorb excess moisture.
  3. Place pizza crust onto a baking sheet or baking steel. Spread pizza sauce evenly over the crust. Top evenly with shredded mozzarella cheese. Next, add the tomato slices and fresh mozzarella cheese. Top with chicken sausage. Dot evenly with pesto sauce.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and immediately top with torn basil.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • I prefer homemade pesto sauce, but store-bought is fine.
  • If you cannot find the fully cooked sausage mentioned above, feel free to use your favorite.
