Dinner idea: Tomato Basil Pizza

  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 package (10 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust or homemade crust
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella, divided
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, snipped
  • 2 garlic cloves, run through garlic press
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 plum (Roma) tomatoes, thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 15-by-12-inch cookie sheet with olive oil spray. Roll dough onto cookie sheet. Sprinkle crust with 1 cup mozzarella.

Combine the remaining mozzarella cheese, Parmesan, basil, garlic and mayonnaise in bowl. Layer tomatoes over mozzarella and top with cheese and mayo mixture. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.

Makes about 8 servings.

On TV: ‘Underwater Universe’ on the History channel at 9 p.m. EST; 8 p.m. CST

Tonight is the first of a four-part series, "Underwater Universe," that explores the deadly forces of the ocean: tides and currents, pressure, killer shockwaves and extreme predators. With breathtaking underwater cinematography and new scientific information, this special takes viewers on a submersible expedition of the dark side of water on the History channel.

Weekend tip: Spring forward on Sunday

Time springs forward early Sunday morning, and you can have fun with it by making a game of changing all the clocks and changing the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. You can also plan some spring-themed events because winter is almost over!
