Margherita Pizza

We love to grill pizza in the summer. This one has been my favorite so far!

dough for your favorite pizza (I like (almost)whole wheat)
3 medium sized tomatoes, sliced thin
10-12 basil leaves, cut into ribbons
8 oz. fresh mozzarella
1/4 cup olive oil
3 crushed garlic cloves

Grilled method:
Using a pizza peel, cook one side on the grill until lightly browned, and repeat on the other side. 

Remove from grill  and put on cookie sheet or pizza pan for the oven.

Brush with oil and garlic.

Add sliced tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella.

Broil on Low until cheese is melted and bubbly, about 10 minutes--watch so it doesn't burn!

Oven method:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

Roll out your favorite dough onto a cookie sheet or pizza stone.

Add sliced tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella.

Bake 20 minutes or until crust is golden.
