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.
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.
