FRESH TOMATO & BASIL PIZZA


One of my ABSOLUTE favorites foods is pizza. When I have some down time I love to recreate different crusts with assorted seasonings, flours, and spices but when I am in a rush, I make this quick and easy recipe. I hope you enjoy! 
Yield: 4-8 servings
  • 1/2 Rooted Delights Mozzah cheez wheel-shredded
  • Two 8-ounce pieces of purchased pizza dough (we used Trader's Joe garlic herb gluten free crust)
  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup marinara sauce, plus more if desired (we used Trader's Joe organic marinara sauce) 
  • 2 roma tomatoes, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 1/4 cup grated vegan parmesan
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced, optional
  • 6 fresh basil leaves, plus extra for garnish
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt



Prepare crust as instructed on package and place crust onto middle rack or on baking sheet. Drizzle 2 teaspoons of oil over each pizza dough. Add marinara sauce to crust and began sprinkling the mozzarella over the pizza dough, dividing equaling and leaving a 1-inch border around each pizza. Arrange the tomato slices  over the cheese. Sprinkle with vegan parmesan. Arrange basil leaves on top, drizzle with a little more olive oil and sprinkle garlic all over. Bake the pizzas until the crusts are crisp and brown on the bottom and the cheese is melted on top.  Drizzle 1 teaspoon of oil over each pizza. Sprinkle with basil for garnish and salt. Cut the pizza into wedges and serve immediately. ENJOY!

**For a super bubbly cheez, in the last 1-2 minutes of cooking pizza in oven, switch to broil but be careful as it can burn quickly. Remove from oven, cut, and serve.
