Great pizza recipe! There are limited ingredients, but if you buy fresh then the ingredients will speak for themselves. I used C.L.'s Homemade Pizza Dough recipe for the crust and my only modification was to mix the garlic & olive oil with some italian seasoning and spread on the crust first prior to adding the other ingredients. I also added some rotisserie chicken (shredded). Broil on High for the last 3 minutes of cook time to get a nice golden crust and cheese then serve to the delight of your family. Start to finish, this was so easy and simple to make but tasted absolutely delicious. While the pizza baked, I also roasted some asparagus with italian seasoning on my second rack in the oven and served alongside the pizza after the broil time - great meal and I would definitely make again; enjoy!
Tomato Pizza with Garlic and Smoked Gouda
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.
