Basil Goat Cheese Pizza

Quintrell's picture
The flavors compliment each other so well and it is so easy! I use frozen bread dough to speed the process. Set out dough before you leave for work and you are ready to go by the time you get home!
Ingredients
  Frozen white bread dough 1 Pound, thawed
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
  Ground black pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Minced fresh rosemary 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Italian tomato sauce 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Crumbled goat cheese 4 Ounce
  Fresh basil sprig 2 , chopped
Directions

1. Allow dough to rise in a covered bowl until doubled in bulk.

2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

3. Roll the dough on a floured surface into a 15-inch circle. Roll the edges towards the center to form a crust, leaving a 12-inch circle. Brush the entire crust generously with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, 1 sprig of chopped basil, and rosemary. Bake in preheated oven until the crust begins to turn golden, 8 to 10 minutes.

4. Spread the crust with tomato sauce. Sprinkle with 2 sprigs of chopped basil and goat cheese. Bake in preheated oven until the crust is brown, and the pizza has heated through, about 8 more minutes.
