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!
|Frozen white bread dough||1 Pound , thawed|
|Olive oil||1 Tablespoon|
|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|
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.
