1 can diced San Marzano tomatoes
4 cloves garlic
8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese
1 cup fresh basil
Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F

2. Mince the garlic cloves while the olive oil heats up in a skillet on medium high, and once the oil is hot, add the garlic and sauté for a few minutes. (Make sure they don’t burn!)

3. Add 1.5 cups of the diced tomatoes to the skillet, stir, and leave on medium heat. Season with salt and pepper, and stir every minute or so

4. Follow the box instructions and make the pizza dough. Shape the dough on a pizza stone or baking tray covered with parchment paper

5. Bake the pizza dough without any toppings for 5 minutes. While it’s baking, slice the mozzarella into thin discs and julienne the basil

7. When it’s done, sprinkle the julienned basil on top and serve with some red wine!
