Prepare pizza dough using my method above or according to package directions.
If using my method, rub par-baked crust with whole garlic clove.
Top crust with 2/3 cup of tomato puree, and sprinkle with minced garlic, and dried herbs.
Place sliced rounds of cheese on pizza and top with basil leaves.
Cook pizza in 500 degree oven for 5-10 minutes or until dough is cooked through and cheese is melted.
Remove pizza from oven, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
*For this simple and classic pizza I use San Marzano tomato puree
