1 recipe Pizza Dough
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
2 large Garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoon chopped fresh Rosemary
½ teaspoon Red pepper flakes
½ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground Black Pepper
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Optional ingredients include capers, olives, or diced tomatoes
Makes 2 14" Pizzas
Prepare the Pizza Dough.
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. If you are using a pizza stone, place it on a lower shelf and preheat it with the oven. If you are using pizza pans, arrange the racks in the lower half of the oven.
Divide the pizza dough in half. Pat or roll the dough into a 12" round. Place the round on a wooden pizza peel or pizza pan generously dusted with flour or cornmeal. Spread half the olive oil evenly over the dough round. Sprinkle half the garlic, rosemary, pepper flakes, salt, pepper and cheese evenly over the oil. Add additional ingredients as desired.
If you are using a pizza stone, slide the pizza directly onto the preheated stone. Alternately, place the prepared pizza on the rack. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until brown, crisp, and bubbling. Remove the pizza from the oven, cut into strips or squares and serve hot.
To make a second pizza, repeat the steps with the remaining ingredients.
