The refrigerator light goes on...

This pizza is deceptively simple. The strips of tomato bake quickly in the hot oven while the pizza is cooking. They soften slightly and are sweet. The flavor is balanced perfectly by the fresh basil, roasted garlic, and cheese.

Pizza starts with a good crust and this Whole Wheat Pizza Dough is delicious. The honey is used to activate the yeast and brings a softly sweet flavor to the whole wheat flour. You can divide this recipe by 2 or 4 pretty easily.

You can make the full batch of pizza dough and it does freeze well. It is a good idea to freeze it in individual pizza sized balls wrapped tightly in plastic wrap or in a Tupperware container.

A pizza stone is the key to baking a professional quality pie. They are inexpensive and so worth using.

Pizza with Tomato, Basil and Roasted Garlic


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.

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.
