White Pizza with Tomato & Basil

One of the best pizzas we've ever made! Only 352 calories per serving (2 slices per serving).

1 (10oz) thin pizza crust (or you can make your own if you are talented like Holly) :)
1 teaspoon cornmeal
cooking spray
3 TBS pesto with basil
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup part skim ricotta cheese
1/2 cup sliced small tomatoes (we used Campari)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup small basil leaves (dried basil is ok too)
crushed red pepper (optional)

1. Preheat broiler to high.
2. Place a baking sheet in the oven; heat for 10 minutes.
3. While baking sheet heats, place crust on another baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal. Lightly coat crust with cooking spray. Spread pesto evenly over crust, leaving a 1" border. Sprinkle mozzarella evenly over pesto. Dollop ricotta by teaspoonfuls over the mozzarella.
4. Slide crust onto preheated baking sheet.
5. Broil 5 inches from heat for 5 minutes or until the cheese starts to melt. Remove from oven.
6. Top evenly with tomatoes, black pepper and basil. Add crushed red pepper if desired.
