This is my favorite pizza to date. Incredibly fast, incredibly delicious. Steeping the garlic and basil in the olive oil makes it incredibly flavorful. It uses stuff I will have in my CSA box for much of the summer: cherry tomatoes, garlic, basil. Huge hit with the husband and kid. Win!
1-2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
1 small round fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup basil, chopped (I have also used mixed herbs from my garden when I don’t have CSA basil)
1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
pizza crust of choice
Put olive oil in a small bowl and stir in garlic and basil. Let sit while you prepare pizza, or for an hour. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Brush crust liberally with infused olive oil. Arrange mozzarella on top. Place tomatoes, sliced side up all over crust, then drizzle remaining olive oil and all the basil and garlic on top. Sprinkle liberally with Romano. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until melty and crisp.
