Meatless Monday: Caprese pizza

a salad in your mouth
We've been on a pizza kick at our house. Since pizza crust is super easy to make and the recipe makes two, we've been having it weekly, it seems.

If my husband would have it his way, we'd eat sausage, pepperoni and black olive pizza week but he's also finding that a pie stacked with seasonal veggies is just as good.

This is a take on the classic tomato salad with basil, caprese salad.

Caprese pizza

Homemade or store bought pizza dough
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, pressed
2 roma tomato, sliced
1/4 cup basil, torn into pieces
mozzarella cheese
parmesan cheese

Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees. Roll out the pizza dough on a pizza stone. Mix the olive oil with garlic and brush onto the pizza dough (all the way to the edges). Arrange tomatoes and basil. Top with desired amount of mozzarella cheese and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
