Quick Pizza Magherita

This recipe comes from Cooking Light, and it was super super yummy and fast.

the ingredients are:

1 10 oz. can of refrigerated pizza dough (we used pilsbury)
cooking spray
5 plum tomatos
1tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, halved
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup thinly sliced basil
salt and pepper

working with the pilsbury dough was interesting. we preheated the oven to 400 and then placed the dough by itself for 5 minutes to make it a little sort of tasted like a big crescent roll though....for our next pizza adventure i think we'll try making our own crust.

plum tomatos are awesome...really easy to slice and they are super meaty.

once the crust comes out you brush some olive oil on it, rub a halved clove of garlic and then start layering the tomatoes and then sprinkle the cheese on top. we grated the cheese fresh so it tasted really great. be sure to leave about an inch of crust around the sides. and then back in the oven for 12 minutes

once it comes out, sprinkle balsamic mixed with some oil all over, place the basil on top, and your'e good to go! it was very drippy, we're not sure if it was the cheese or the tomatoes but a lot of liquid poured out when it was cut, but still very very delicious.
