This is a great way to use up those extra tomatoes and zucchini and yellow squash you seam to have an abundance of this time of year!

2 large
plum tomatoes, sliced

1 1/2 c
kraft shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 c

1
Heat oven to 450^.
Place crust on baking sheet or(for extra crisp crust-bake directly on oven rack).Don't bake yet.

Heat remaining dressing in a large skillet on med-hi heat. Add zucchini and yellow squash; cook and stir 4-5 minutes or until crisp tender. Arrange over tomatoes; top with cheeses.( I added crispy bacon bits).

Note:
Squash mixture may be cooked, cooled and frozen up to 2 months. Thaw and drain before using to assemble pizza.
This would also be good using Susan's tortilla pizza idea.
