Pizza Margherita

Straight from the most recent Bon Appetit! We used Trader Joes out of the bag whole wheat dough… probably should have rolled it a bit thinner, but it’s so sticky!


1 13.8-ounce tube refrigerated pizza dough
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 12-ounce bag cherry tomatoes, stemmed
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds, coarsely crushed in plastic bag
1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
2 4-ounce balls fresh mozzarella in water
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil leaves plus small leaves for garnish
