|1 medium||tomato (4 ounce)|
|1 ounce||fresh mozzarella|
|8 large||fresh basil leaves|
|4 cloves||roasted garlic|
|1/2 ounce||Parmigiano-Reggiano (grated)|
|1/4||whole wheat pizza dough|
Preheat the oven to 500°F.
Pizza is best baked on a pizza stone but a cookie sheet will work as well. Place the baking stone or cookie sheet in the oven and allow it to heat at least 15 - 20 minutes.
While the baking surface is heating, slice tomato in half vertically. Remove the seeds and slice the tomato into julienne strips.
Cut the fresh mozzarella into 1/2 inch cubes.
Gently slice the basil into strips (see Chiffonade sidebar in this recipe). Cut each clove of roasted garlic into quarters.
Gently toss the tomato strips, mozzarella, basil leaves and garlic together in a small mixing bowl.
Set the tomato mixture close to the oven so that it will be accessible and easy to place on top of the dough. Have the grated parmesan within easy reach.
Using 1/4 of the pizza dough recipe (for each pizza) gently stretch into 8-inch rounds. Don't work too hard to get a perfectly round shape.
Once the dough is formed, place it on the hot pizza stone and top with the tomato/mozzarella mixture.
Bake for approximately eight minutes, and then top with the Parmesan cheese. Bake for another 3 - 5 minutes - until the cheese has melted. Remove from the oven and let it cool for about 90 seconds, slice and serve.
