Expert Tips

Watch pizzas carefully. Each grill heats and cooks differently. If the lowest setting of your grill seems too hot, move pizzas to a cooler part of the grill. You could also turn off a burner if your grill has more than one burner.

To bake pizzas, heat oven to 375°F. Place pizzas on cookie sheet. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until toppings are warm. Sprinkle basil over pizzas.

Use a kitchen scissors to easily cut the fresh basil leaves.
