Recipe Thursday

This is the first time I've posted a recipe that I haven't tried, but I am going to make it this weekend because it sounds yummy!

Fresh Mozzarella & Basil Pizza

1 4-ounce portion pizza dough (I buy from our local pizza shop)
1/2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 large plum tomato, thinly sliced
1 TBSP sliced fresh basil
4 thin slices fresh mozzarella
1 slice country/smoked ham, cut into thin strips
1/4 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Shape pizza dough and drizzle with the olive oil (brush on if available). Cover dough and let rise for 15-20 minutes. Heat baking sheet or pizza stone in the oven.

Layer tomatos and other ingredients evenly over the pizza. Sprinkle with pepper. Bake for 10 minutes or until crust is golden.

I will not be following these directions perfectly as I'm sure I'll want more cheese (since I've been good on Points this week) and surely will want more basil, etc. I'll let you know how it turns out and hopefully get a photo as well.
Uh, this didn't turn out as planned. It tasted pretty good, but I had what I like to refer to as a "pizza dough malfunction".
Can you count the disasters in this picture?

I love the tomato/fresh mozzarella/fresh basil combo. It's *great* on pizza, but also makes a damn good omelet.

I'm going to try this one out soon.

Also, I love the new layout!
