Ingredients

  • 1/2 recipe No Knead No Rise Pizza dough (or store bought)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese torn/crumbled
  • 1/2 cup asiago cheese shredded
  • 1/3 cup parmeggani regiano cheese shredded
  • 1 ripe red tomato sliced thin*
  • 1 ripe yellow tomato sliced thin*
  • 18-20 basil leaves
  • 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Instructions

  • Place pizza stone in lower third of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees F.
  • In a small pot, combine vinegar and honey over medium heat and let simmer (a low simmer) for 10-12 minutes until thickened. Stir occasionally. (If you make it too thick place it over low heat and whisk in a little water and remove from heat.)
  • Cut a large sheet of parchment paper and sprinkle with a little flour. Roll dough out into a circle.
  • Mix garlic and oil together and brush over the entire surface of the dough. Top with cheeses and then tomatoes. Use a pizza paddle or some other flat surface to slide the parchment paper and pizza onto and transfer to the stone in the oven. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges become golden.
  • When done, top with basil and drizzle with balsamic glaze. Slice and serve.

Notes

*Be sure to drain off juice from tomatoes by gently patting between two paper towels. This will prevent your pizza dough from becoming soggy from the tomato juices.
