Margarita Pizza


Ingredients
Pizza dough
1 large tomato, thinly sliced
1 16 oz. log of mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup basil, thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil

Directions
Roll out the pizza dough into a circle. Brush a pizza stone with olive oil and sprinkle with cornmeal. Place the pizza dough onto the pizza stone. Brush the dough with a generous amount of olive oil. Slice one tomato into thin slices and lay over the pizza dough to cover the entire surface of the dough. Then cut mozzarella into 1/4 inch slices and lay over the tomatoes. Scatter the mozzarella with enough space in between each piece of cheese for the cheese to spread as it melts. Thinly slice about 1/2 cup of basil and scatter over the mozzarella and tomatoes. Finish by sprinkling salt and pepper and a little olive oil to maximize the flavor. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until the pizza dough appears golden and cheese begins to brown.
