Garlic cheese pizza
My love for garlic pizza runs deep, which is not any shock to anybody who is aware of me. It’s actually 100% cheese and carbs, with out even an oz. of good-for-you greens. That just about sums me up.😂
Some days I actually want I used to be one in every of “these folks” who genuinely craves recent greens over cheese and carbs. It’s not that I hate greens, I don’t in any respect! It’s simply……properly, you realize. Put a piping sizzling garlic cheese pizza in entrance of me, in all its magnificent melty tacky glory, alongside the most effective salad on the planet, and there’s simply no query what I’m going for, each single time:

Garlic – Recent, and solely recent! Garlic pasties jars and tubes have an disagreeable sourness to them as a result of preservatives. There isn’t any substitution for the true factor!
Mozzarella cheese – For melting perfection and wonderful brown golden spots on the floor. Additionally, mozzarella isn’t oily like different cheeses.
Parmesan – This provides flavour, as a result of parmesan is loaded with savoury flavour and is salty.
Olive oil – Blended with the garlic to unfold on the pizza base.
Salt – For seasoning. Just one/8 teaspoon is required

Magic no-yeast pizza base – This isn’t a tragic substitution for a basic yeast pizza base. It’s actually good! Made in 40 seconds flat from begin to end utilizing a meals processor, no resting or rising required.
Retailer purchased, or different selfmade pizza base of alternative.

My little secret tip is to infuse the oil with beautiful garlic flavour by setting it apart for simply 10 minutes. And use a garlic press for optimum launch of flavour!
Steep oil with garlic – Combine the oil and garlic and put aside for 10 minutes to infuse with flavour.
Stretch your chosen pizza base onto a pizza pan, ideally one with holes in it (crispy base!).
Unfold the garlic infused oil over the bottom.
Sprinkle with parmesan then mozzarella, leaving a border across the crust (for gripping functions).
Word: In case you are utilizing my no-yeast pizza base, spray or brush the uncovered edge with olive oil so it browns. You don’t want to do that for yeast-based pizza dough.
Bake for 8 minutes in a sizzling 250°C / 480°F (230°C fan) oven, rotating the tray midway, till you’ve got beautiful golden spots on the cheese.

- Basic pizza dough (yeast) – 5 min hand knead or stand-mix or 40 second meals processor, plus 4 to six hours rising time (throughout 2 rises)

2. Garlic – For the most effective outcomes, we wish the garlic in a paste type so it absolutely infuses the oil with flavour. In case you don’t have a garlic crusher, finely mince the garlic utilizing your knife then smear it right into a paste utilizing the aspect of the knife.
