Pizza

  • 2 homemade pizza bases
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tbsp The Good Oil
  • 2 cups tomato pizza sauce
  • 2 cups grated pizza cheese
  • 250g fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
  • Fresh basil leaves

Method

Preheat oven to 230C. Preheat two pizza stones or two oven trays.

Place each base onto a piece of baking paper, so it’s easy to transfer to the preheated pizza stones or trays.

Combine the garlic with The Good Oil, then brush onto each base. Spread each base with about ¾ – 1 cup of pizza sauce, then top with ¼ cup of the grated cheese. Place slices of fresh mozzarella evenly across bases to pizza stones or trays. Use a fish slice to help with this if needed.

Place in oven and cook for 12-15 minutes until base is golden and crispy and the cheese is bubbling. Swapping trays halfway through for even cooking. You could use a fan bake for better results.

Allow to cool for about 5 minutes before eating, as the sauce and cheese will be piping hot.

Just before serving, top with fresh basil leaves and enjoy!
