Every once in a while and more often for me than most, I love this version to make for pizza. Crisp think crust, with a buttery topped garlic and herb flavor, bring on the vino and a great antipasto salad and I am happy!
1 recipe of my homemade pizza dough or your favorite store bought
2 tablespoons melted butter
dried oregano and parsley
fresh basil leaves torn
1 or 2 thinly sliced roma tomatoes
1 teaspoon minced garlic
granulated garlic to sprinkle on the rim of the crust
Whole milk mozzarella slices
cayenne pepper and black pepper to taste
Stretch homemade pizza dough onto a round pizza pan that is heavy greased with shortening(it won't shrink). Let dough rise 1/2 hour. Sprinkle the edges with granulated garlic. Drizzle the whole pie with butter. Add a generous amount of grating cheese,
Sprinkle evenly with dried herbs all over the top. Put the slice tomatoes on top adding some minced garlic to each tomato. Add the basil to the tomatoes. Place slices of mozzarella all over the top to cover. Drizzle with olive oil. I add the cayenne and black pepper on top last. Bake on a preheated 430 degree hot oven until mozzarella starts to brown and crust edges are browned.
