    Heat oven to 400°F for nonstick sheet pan (425°F for all other pan types). Place oven rack in low position. Unroll dough with oven-safe parchment paper onto ungreased large cookie sheet (dough bakes on paper). Nonstick parchment paper will brown during baking. Brush with olive oil.

    Top crust with tomatoes and garlic. Top with mozzarella cheese.

    Bake 17 to 22 minutes or until bottom of crust is golden brown. Top with basil.
  • Thoroughly pat mozzarella cheese pearls dry to prevent crust from getting soggy.
