Tomato Pizza with Garlic and Smoked GoudaRecipe
Becky Luigart-Stayner; Melanie J. Clarke
With its juicy tomatoes and smoked cheese, this pizza has a flavor that's reminiscent of a BLT. Plum tomatoes work best because of their firmness, but any variety will do. We prebaked the crust a few minutes to prevent the tomatoes from making it soggy.

Cooking spray
1 tablespoon cornmeal
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded smoked Gouda cheese
1 1/2 cups sliced plum tomato (about 4)
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil


Preheat oven to 450°.

Roll the dough into a 12-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place dough on a (12-inch) pizza pan or baking sheet coated with cooking spray and sprinkled with cornmeal. Crimp edges of dough with fingers to form a rim. Bake at 450° for 5 minutes.

Sprinkle cheese over pizza crust, leaving a 1-inch border. Arrange the tomato slices over cheese. Combine oil and garlic; sprinkle over tomato. Sprinkle with pepper.

Bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Top with basil. Cut into 8 wedges.
