Tomato and Basil Pizza

Pizza is still a weekly meal at our house, I just haven’t posted a new one to the blog in awhile.  This pizza creation came about because I had crazy amounts of basil growing in my garden and my mom gave me a couple tomatoes from her garden.  I love summer!

Tomato and Basil Pizza

pizza dough

olive oil to brush on crust

2 small cloves of garlic, minced and mashed up with a little salt

2 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced

cracked black pepper

1/4 cup whole basil leaves, chopped

1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated

Once I rolled out the dough, I brushed it all over with the oil and garlic.  Then I placed the tomato slices all over and topped them with black pepper.  Next, I sprinkled on the basil and cheese.

I baked the pizza for 15-20 minutes on the lowest rack of a 450 degree oven.  Yum!
