Prepare pizza dough according to directions. Roll out into a round pizza. Score with fork to prevent bubbles while baking. We love this pizza dough. It will make two pizzas!
Mix the olive oil and garlic together in small dish. Brush the top of the dough lightly with mixture. Top with pizza sauce, then the mozzarella cubes and then tomato slices. Sprinkle with Gourmet Garden Lightly Dried Basil and fresh black pepper.
Bake for 22-24 minutes. Place back in oven and continue to bake until crust is lightly browned and cheese is bubbling.
Remove from the oven and slice pizza. Serve immediately.
