Palatable Pizza

There's nothing like homemade pizza, especially if the vegetables come from your own garden.  If you do not have  a vegetable garden, fret not.  The local farmer's market always has freshly picked produce for your quick and healthy meals.  Pizza, to me, is something that can be heavily customized or eaten just plain, either way it pleases the palate no end.  With store-bought dough and sauce, this recipe is a cinch to make.

Simple Pizza

1 large tomato, sliced
1 clove minced garlic
A dozen basil leaves
1 jar pizza sauce
1 packet shredded mozarella cheese
Pizza dough

Dust a baking pan with flour, then roll out or flatten dough with hands and spread in pan .
Rub garlic all over crust.
Now, spread the sauce over crust, then the tomatoes and basil evenly.
Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top.
Bake at 400F for 15-20 minutes. 

Variations: Add toppings like onions and bell peppers, olives and mushrooms, or try herbs like parsley for flavor.  The first couple of times, keep an eye on the pizza to make sure it doesn't get overdone.  You can make mini pizzas for the kids, make it fun for them where they can pick their own toppings.
