Quick Tomato Basil Garlic Blue Cheese Pizza
I looked in the fridge to see what I had, and of course there was no mozzarella cheese, but in the freezer, I had a block of blue cheese and decided to break it out.
I popped into the garden and picked some fresh basil, sliced some garlic and slow cooked them in a bit of butter and vegetable oil to produce a well flavoured garlic butter.
So after defrosting the dough, I had taken it out earlier in the day and left it on the counter to slow defrost, I spread it out and popped it on a lightly greased baking sheet. I spread the garlic butter out over the entire pizza, its melted so easy to spread, just make sure that the garlic pieces are evenly distributed across the entire dough.
On top of this, I added the (washed and drained) basil leaves, sliced tomatoes, and crumbled blue cheese.
Then into a preheated 450* oven for 10-15 minutes (or until crust is well cooked and golden brown) - oh SO good. Perfect for a Friday night movie date night to eat while snuggled up on the sofa with your love and so fast and easy to make also.
Here are the ingredients:
1 pre-made pizza dough
6 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 cup butter
2 TBSP vegetable oil (or Olive Oil)
12-15 fresh basil leaves
2 tomatoes, sliced thickly
1 small block of (good quality) blue cheese, approx 1/2 cup
