    Chef Acosta's Note:

    A light pizza with olive oil, garlic, fresh basil, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Perfect with a beer on a hot summer night. I was inspired to try and make this myself after having an delicious version of it at Small Bar in Chicago. Yum!

      This was absolutely amazing. Made as directed with homemade dough. Would not change a thing. The 4 ounces of cheese was just perfect. I was concerned it wouldn't be enough but decided not to add more. I'm glad I didn't. This is a new favorite and will be made often. Thanks for sharing.

      Yummy! I just love fresh basil. Very easy, light, and tasty. I will scale back on pepper next time, it sort of stole the show from the tomatoes and basil.

      I decided to try this pizza because I am not fond of pizza/red sauce. I was perplexed when I saw how little of the mozzarella was used and was afraid that it would be bland. I may have used less then 4 ounces of cheese (I just dusted the pizza under the assumption that more would be added to the top. WRONG! LOL!) Quite the contrary, the pizza was delightfully light and I am glad I did not smother it in cheese. I sliced the tomatoes paper thin using a mandolin and i would do it this way again. The red pepper flakes were a fabulous addition. Low in Fat and Vegetarian enough for me! I will be making this one again. Thanks Chef Acosta for posting. My Three Chefs Fall 2008
