    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    pizza

    Units: US | Metric

    Toppings

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Make pizza dough according to directions up until the point where the dough is proofed and is ready to be cooked.
    2. 2
      If your mozzarella cheese is very fresh, slice up and set on paper towels first for any whey to absorb then proceed with recipe.
    3. 3
      Peel the tomatoes by plunging into boiling water for about 15 seconds. Remove peel, cut into thin slices, remove seeds and drain in a colander.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly oil a round pizza tray* with olive oil. Roll out the pizza dough into a thin, supple sheet and place in the prepared pizza pan. Brush the surface of the dough with olive oil, cover with thin slices of Mozzarella. Scatter on half of the tomato slices, then the Parmesan. Arrange the remaining tomato slices on top.
    5. 5
      *NOTE: a heavier pizza tray is preferable for best baking results.
    6. 6
      Lightly salt the tomatoes, then drizzle a little bit of olive oil all over the top.
    7. 7
      Bake 15-20 minutes. It may be necessary to turn pizza pan around at the half way mark for even browning.
    8. 8
      Garnish the fresh basil ribbons on top of the pizza just before serving.

      I don't know why but I'm always doubtful of recipes with very few ingredients. Once again, I was totally proved wrong! This pizza is so simple and delicious. There were a few changes I made but nothing drastic. I didn't peel my tomatoes, baked the crust for a few minutes before adding the ingredients, and added a sprinkling of freshly minced garlic on top. Perfection!
