  • In a small mixing bowl, combine extra virgin olive oil, fresh basil, oregano, garlic and pepper; mix to combine.
  • Brush the garlic mixture over the pizza dough.
  • Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the dough.
  • Arrange the tomatoes over the sauce.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheeses and crushed pepper.
