This is the easiest pizza to make ever! This time of year with fresh tomatoes and basil available, if you don’t have your own from your garden, it is also the tastiest. We look forward to eating this all winter long. The part that takes the most time, is getting the pizza dough ready. The best recipe is the one I posted last. Once that is prepped, you can have Tomato Basil Pizza in just a few minutes.

Tomato Basil Pizza

1 pizza dough shaped and ready for baking on pan of choice

olive oil for brushing on pizza crust before baking, about 1 tsp.

3 cloves garlic, chopped fine

10 fresh basil leaves, chopped coarsely

2 large tomatoes cut into slices, or a handful of grape tomatoes cut in half.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Brush olive oil on the shaped pizza dough and spread the chopped garlic evenly around on top. I sort of push it into the dough so it bakes into the crust. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. As soon as you take this out of the oven, top with the fresh sliced tomatoes and then sprinkle the chopped basil on top of the tomatoes. That is it! Eat it hot out of the oven!
