Pizza Margherita

Andy and I were on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill a couple weekends ago browsing the local shops and we came upon a pizza storefront with pizza margherita for sale. Andy commented on how good it looked...and the next night just what do you think appeared on our dinner plate?

My Pizza Margherita

Whole Wheat pizza crust (I picked up one at the grocery this time)
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
Tomatoes, sliced and patted dry
Basil, chiffonade
Fresh Mozzarella, sliced

Place crust on baking sheet and drizzle with EVOO and red pepper flakes. Layer on tomatoes, s&p. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees. Lower oven to 350 degrees, layer cheese slices and basil then bake for an additional 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted. Allow to cool 5 minutes and slice.
