Ingredients

  • 1 pizza dough
  • 4 vine ripened tomatoes
  • 1 garlic clove chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 pound buffalo mozzarella sliced
  • a handful fresh basil leaves

Instructions

  •  Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Place the tomatoes in a bowl, cover with boiling water from the kettle and leave to stand for 1 minute. Drain, rinse in cold water, then peel away the skins.
  • Roughly chop up the tomatoes. Place chopped tomatoes in a bowl with the oregano, garlic, and oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. If the tomatoes are quite juicy, you can choose to strain off some of the juice.
  • Roll out the pizza dough into a 12-inch round and place on a baking sheet. Spread the tomato mixture over the dough - spread it to the edges but leave a border. Top with the cheese and basil.
  • Drizzle the oil over the pizza and bake for 10-14 minutes - the cheese should be bubbly, and the crust should be slightly browned.
