 Ingredients List

  • 1 can Pillsburyâ„¢ refrigerated thin pizza crust
  • 1/2 cup tomato bruschetta with olive oil and basil, drained if necessary (from 8-oz jar)
  • 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 8 slices
  • 1 tablespoon Crisco® 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Watkinsâ„¢ Basil Leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon Watkinsâ„¢ Garlic Sea Salt


Heat oven to 400°F. Spray large cookie sheet with Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray. Unroll dough on cookie sheet; press to form 16x11-inch rectangle. Bake 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix bruschetta and mascarpone cheese until well blended; set aside.

Heat griddle or 12-inch skillet over medium-low heat (325°F). With pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut pizza crust into 4 rows by 2 rows to make 8 (5 1/2x4-inch) rectangles.

To assemble sandwiches, spread 1 tablespoon bruschetta mixture to within 1/4 inch from edges on each pizza crust rectangle. Top 4 rectangles with 2 slices mozzarella cheese. Top with remaining pizza crust rectangles bruschetta mixture side down. Brush 1 1/2 teaspoons of the olive oil over tops of sandwiches; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of the basil and 1/4 teaspoon of the garlic salt.

Place sandwiches oil side down on hot griddle. Brush with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon basil and remaining 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt. Cook uncovered 2 to 3 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Turn; cook 2 to 3 minutes longer or until bottoms are golden brown and sandwiches are heated through.
