Fresh Tomato and Garlic Pizza
There is a bakery that makes this pizza and I had to copy it.
One pound of pizza dough
Crisco to grease the pan
Four thin sliced tomatoes
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 big handfuls of grated cheese
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
Grease the pan with Crisco
Press the dough into the pan
Toss the tomatoes, garlic, oil, salt, pepper, garlic salt and oregano together.
Layer the tomatoes neatly on the dough.
Add all the remaining oil
Cover with the grated cheese
Bake on the bottom rack of the oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
Check the bottom of the crust because it has to be brown to be crispy.
Every oven is different so cooking times really vary but always start checking early.
