We love this pizza and in fact it is my favorite. However I may forget and tell you that something else is my favorite. For now Basil Pizza is my favorite!

You will want to start out with my recipe here for  Homemade Pizza Dough.

I use Basil out of my garden to load this pizza up.

Olive oil

Fresh Garlic

Mozzarella Cheese

Once you roll out the dough to a thin crust place it on a well oiled pan. Place the dough in a  350*F  oven until it is no longer doughy. I always pre-bake the crust so it doesn't come out uneven. It also takes less time to cook your pizza. You can also freeze a pre-baked crust! Take it out of the oven and load it up with Fresh diced garlic, Fresh basil and then top it off with as much mozzarella cheese as you would like. Make sure the cheese covers the basil so that the basil doesn't burn or dry out. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is golden and the crust has a nice golden color to it as well. 

Remove from oven using oven mitts.

Slice and enjoy!
