DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  • Drizzle the olive oil over the pizza shell. Use a brush to spread it around and make sure to get the crust!
  • Next, disperse the finely chopped garlic evenly.
  • Spread the mozzarella cheese throughout the top, but keep it thin.
  • Place the thinly sliced tomatoes across the entire pizza.
  • Lightly salt and pepper the tomatoes with the kosher salt.
  • Spread the fresh basil leaves, making sure to get some on tomatoes and on just the cheese itself.
  • Cook the pizza in the oven for about 9-10 minutes, or until sufficiently crispy and melted to your liking.
  • Add a little Parmesan cheese and (optional) crushed red pepper and enjoy!
