Pizza with fresh tomato, basil, and olives

Here's a really terrific pizza that we stumbled on by playing "let's clean out the fridge"!  I had several previously made pizza shells in the freezer, each of which had already been baked for about 6 minutes.  I stuck them in at 450 just long enough to thaw and heat them to make spreading the cheese easy.

Pizza with Fresh Tomato

Tomato, sliced very thinly
Fresh basil, chopped
Olive oil
Kalamata olives, chopped
Pizza shells
Soft goat cheese

Scallions, sliced very thinly
Bit of shredded mozzarella cheese
Black pepper

Lay the sliced tomatoes out of a plate and sprinkle with salt and basil.  Drizzle with olive oil and top with chopped olives.  Let it sit for a few minutes.

Heat oven to 450 with rack on bottom.  Heat the pizza shells slightly and spread with softened goat cheese.  Return shells to oven for 3 minutes.

Spread tomato slices and other ingredients onto shells.  Top with scallions and a little bit of mozzarella cheese.  Return to the oven for 4 to 5 minutes.  Add black pepper to serve.
