“A thin crispy crust, drizzled with olive oil, spread with freshly sliced garlic, topped with fresh mozzarella, thinnly sliced tomatoes, and fresh chopped basil leaves. I recommend using my Garlic-Herb Pizza Crust (Gluten Free) which pairs perfectly with these toppings.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cook pizza crust 10 minutes (or as directed in recipe - until it is mostly cooked).
  2. Drizzle cooked crust with a little more than 1 tbsp of the olive oil and use a brush to spread until the entire crust is moistened, adding more olive oil as needed.
  3. Spread sliced garlic evenly on top.
  4. Top with a single layer of 1/4" thick slices of mozzarella (or a thickness to your liking) and then fill in any gaps in between the slices by sprinkling with the shredded mozzarella.
  5. Place thinnly sliced tomatoes on top of cheese in a single layer, spaced close together (they will shrink and spread apart when baked).
  6. Sprinkle with roughly chopped basil.
  7. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil (about 1/2 tbsp) and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
  8. Bake 15 minutes or until tomatoes are crinkly and mozzarella is soft and slightly browned in some areas.
