  8. Roll your preferred dough to fit a cookie sheet and blind bake under weights or dry beans for 10 minutes at 350°F.
  9. When the dough is cooled somewhat, cut the tips off the garlic cloves and squeeze that glorious goo on to the dough and spread.

  12. Cover with grated mozzarella and Parmesan.
