Yum!!! Homemade pizza! If you are starting with ready made dough (and why wouldn't you?), it is quicker, healthier, cheaper and tastier to make your own. It is...really! Even if you favorite pizza is a standard variety tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, a homemade version really is delicious. Plus, you don't have to go out to get it.
I like baking it on a pizza stone, which you can get anywhere for about $30. It makes the crust very, very crispy, which is the way we like it. It is also great for reheating pizza as well but a baking sheet will work too.
1 # pizza dough
1 T. garlic infused olive oil
2 medium sized zucchini, sliced into 1/8 inch slices
2 T. chopped fresh oregano leaves, divided
2 c. shredded mozarella
1 1/2 c. grated Parmesan or Pecorino Romano
1/2 c. pitted sliced black olives
Place oven rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat oven to 450.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into a 12 inch circle. With a pastry brush, brush 1 T. of the oil over the dough. Using the tines of a fork, prick the dough all over.
Arrange the zucchini slices in a single layer on top of the dough. Drizzle the zucchini with the rest of the oil.
Bake the pizza for 18 - 20 minutes, or until the edges begin to brown. Remove the pizza from the oven, sprinkle with 1 T. of oregano, the cheeses and the olives.
Bake 5 - 7 minutes until the cheeses are melted and bubbly.
Sprinkle the pizza with the remaining oregano, cut into wedges and serve.
