Tomato-Basil Pizza

This is my new favorite pizza. This summer we ate this meal once a week. At the beginning of summer we used fresh basil from our garden but that quickly was depleted. I took the recipe that PW had posted and modified it a little because her version was a little too salty.

- Roll out favorite pizza dough.
-Drizzle lightly with olive oil. Spread it around the entire crust so it makes a very thin layer over it.
-Make a layer of fresh basil leaves over the crust (you could use a pesto spread but the fresh leaves taste better)
-Slice tomatoes and put a layer on top of the basil
-Slice fresh mozzarella to put over tomato layer (I've also used grated not so fresh mozzarella and it tasted fine)
-Sprinkle grated Parmesan over the top (optional)
-Bake pizza according to crust directions

Pizza Margherita is one of my favorites too. You should try it grilled - so yummy! That pizza place next to Red Rock made a super yummy one with a thin crust baked in a brick oven.

Good job Sabrina. Yum. If I buy the house next door to you, will you cook for me once a week. I'd buy the groceries :) I'd even throw in a few hours of baby sitting
