Pizza margherita

Another specialty from my Italian pizzeria days in high school.

1 batch thin crust pizza dough
1 1/2 cups pizza sauce
2-3 handfuls of shredded mozzarella
6-8 basil leaves, sliced

Spread the dough out on a pizza stone or cookie sheet. Bake for 10-25 minutes in preheated oven at 425 degrees or until golden. Remove from oven and gently work a long spatula up under the dough, then flip it.

Top with sauce and cheese. Bake until cheese bubbles and browns.

Remove from oven and top with basil. Brush crust with olive oil.
