Philadelphia Creme for Cooking

Have y'all discovered this tasty new creation from Kraft Philadelphia yet?  I started noticing commercials for it a few weeks ago and saw a coupon for $1.50 off so I decided to give it a shot. Oh. my. word. There are 4 different varieties, Italian cheese & herb, Savory garlic, Original, and Sante Fe. 

I picked up the Italian cheese & herb to try.  We decided to make our own version of a Margherita pizza. Seriously, after we had emptied the container, I was sticking my finger in and licking the bowl clean.  It's that good, y'all!  I will definitely be finding more recipes to use this deliciousness.

Piper Margherita Pizza
1 store bought pizza crust (we made 2, one regular crust & one thin, I preferred the thin crust myself)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tub Philadelphia Creme for cooking, Italian cheese & herb flavor
1-2 ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced
Basil leaves, torn into small strips
1 c. shredded Mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 425.  Brush pizza crust with olive oil. Next, spread the cooking cream to cover the crust, like you would traditional pizza sauce.  For one pizza, you probably will only  use half the container, but I won't judge if you decide to use it all.  Top with shredded cheese and torn basil leaves.  Finally, arrange your tomato slices on top.  Ben cut each slice in half so they were half-circles and made the prettiest little design on our pizzas. I'm ashamed I didn't take a picture.  Anywho, place pizza directly on middle oven rack and bake 8-12 minutes.  I recommend starting at 8 minutes and checking.  Now prepare yourself for goodness.

Hope y'all enjoy!
