  1. Heat oven to 400°F. On lightly floured surface, unroll and stack crusts one on top of the other. Roll to 17x12-inch rectangle.
  2. Fit crust into ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan, pressing firmly into corners and sides. Fold extra crust underneath and slightly on top edges of pan; poke bottom and sides of crust with fork. Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until light golden brown; remove from oven, and cool 5 minutes.
  3. Spread pesto on partially baked crust. Place tomato slices on top of pesto layer. Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until tomatoes are heated through. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  4. Before serving, garnish with chopped fresh basil.

Recipe Tips

  • Roma tomatoes can vary in size. Try to select tomatoes of the same size for the best look.
  • A side salad with a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette dressing is a great addition to this slab pie.
