Margherita Pizza

This is a deliciously classic Italian pizza! Romas are terrific on pizza because they are not too juicy.

1 prepared pizza crust

Olive oil

1 small clove garlic, minced or pressed

1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

1 or 2 Roma tomatoes, sliced thinly (1 is often fine- you want enough to generally cover pizza, but don't overlap)

2 Tbsp. shredded Parmesan cheese

8-12 basil leaves, left whole or chiffonade/ribbon cut

Preheat oven to 425.

Combine garlic with an overflowing 1 Tbsp. olive oil, then lightly brush it over the pizza crust, all the way to the edges. Leaving a border, sprinkle evenly with half of the mozzarella, top with tomato slices, then sprinkle on the Parmesan. Drizzle with a wee bit of olive oil (1 Tbsp. or less). Dot with basil leaves, and sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella.

Bake on a pizza stone or sheet for about 12-15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and crust is nicely browned.
