Margarita Pizza

Today I made pizza for dinner, Margarita Pizza.

With fresh tomatoes, and fresh basil. And fresh Mozzarella.

It was amazing. I wish I could have eaten 5 more pieces.

Margarita Pizza
Pizza Dough for 1 pizza
4 T Olive Oil
1 t Minced Garlic
2 Tomatoes, sliced
¼- ½ c Basil leaves, coarsely chopped
1 c Fresh Mozzarella, sliced

Brush 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil on a baking pan and sprinkle with cornmeal.

Roll the pizza dough to fit the desired pan. Brush the remaining olive oil over the dough. Spread the garlic over the dough. Layer the tomatoes evenly around the crust. Sprinkle the basil over the tomatoes. Lay the cheese slices over the top, spaced evenly.

Bake at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 minutes, turning once to bake all sides evenly.

Transfer to a cutting board and allow the pizza to cool for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
