• 3/4 cup warm water

  • 1 envelope active dry yeast

  • 2 cups (or more) all purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese, sliced into 1/2 inch thick pieces.

  • 2 plum tomatoes, sliced (or any tomato you like)

  • handful of fresh basil.

  • fresh ground pepper, to taste.

  2. Mix the olive oil and chopped garlic together in a dish. Brush the the dough with olive oil. Push dents into the surface of the dough to prevent bubbling. Top with pizza sauce, then add the the mozzarella cheese slices and the tomato slices.

  3. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned and the cheese is bubbling.

  4. Remove from the oven and top with fresh garlic and parmesan cheese.
