On Sunday, my car broke down and had to be towed, and I was pretty upset. So I turned to comfort food, namely pizza. (Ok, there was some wine involved too, but I still managed to make pizza, so I’m calling it good!)
While making this pizza, I was aiming for simple flavors that were spectacular when all mixed together. The dough for the crust was pre-made from Whole Foods, which is also where I found the smoked mozzarella. The sauce is simply crushed tomatoes. I sliced up about three big garlic cloves and tossed them on there, along with some lemon basil and some regular basil from my container garden. I used both types because I don’t have a lot of either yet (they’re still growing like crazy though).
The lemon basil was a nice little flavor mixed in there. I don’t feel like it is as strong as the regular basil, so the lemon flavor wasn’t overpowering.
I baked this at 400F for about 15 minutes. I don’t like the crust too brown, so once it started to turn, I took it out.
The pizza was incredibly delicious! The crust was really good, I would definitely buy the same dough again. It reheated well too, I just had the last of the leftovers for lunch a little bit ago. Yum!
