Preheat oven to 400° F. Spread fresh pesto over entire pizza crust. Top with mozzarella cheese, both tomatoes and toasted pine nuts. Bake directly on middle rack for 13-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly and crust is lightly browned and crispy. Slice and serve with fresh ground pepper.

Combine the basil, garlic and pine nuts in a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. Add the oil and process until fully incorporated and smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the pesto into a large serving bowl and mix in the grated cheese.
