I adore fresh basil and was thrilled to find this pot full at Trader Joe's for only $3.99! I gave it a couple weeks to acclimate to its new home before I traumatized it by plucking off bunches of leaves, but yesterday was the day! We needed Friday food and the Provolone I just got at Costco (2 lbs. sliced/$6.99) had a yummy looking recipe on the back.
Homemade pizza crust (thanks, KitchenAid!)
3 Tbsp. olive oil (or less)
Roma tomatoes, sliced
salt and pepper
Fresh basil leaves
Spray pizza pan and spread dough out evenly. Brush unbaked crust with olive oil; top with freshly ground pepper, sliced provolone, tomatoes, basil and finally, grated Parmesan. Perfect.
Bake at 425 for 10 minutes or until done.
