Pizza Margherita

Some believe this combination of ingredients to be close to the classic, original pizza.

Serves 3-4

1 Pizza crust, uncooked
4 Roma tomatoes, sliced thinly
1 ounce Olive oil
2 cloves Garlic, rough chopped
Olive oil
6 ounces Mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons Basil, fresh, chopped
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Pre-heat the oven to 450. Marinate the tomatoes in the olive oil and garlic for 20 minutes. Brush the crust with oil. Top with the mozzarella. Top with the tomatoes. Bake for 10-12 minutes (or until the crust begins to brown). Remove from the oven. Top with the basil and Parmesan. Allow to rest for three minutes before slicing.
