This pizza is so YUMMY! If you need a break from pepperoni, try this basil and cheese pie. Besides being delish, basil is a good source of vitamin K, zinc, calcium and magnesium!
It smells good too! I just want to roll around in fresh basil leaves-weird, yes, but I would smell so good!
2 cups packed fresh basil
A few sprigs each of fresh: rosemary, mint, oregano, stems removed and discarded
1/2 cup olive oil
4 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons minced or finely chopped garlic
1 cup parmesean, shredded
2 cups mozzarella-if you can get fresh mozzarella in water, DO IT!- You will love it!
2 whole wheat pizza crusts
Brush a little of the olive oil onto top and sides of crust. Sprinkle on minced garlic.
Add basil, olive oil, de-stemmed herbs, sea salt and garlic cloves to blender or food processor. Process until pureed.
Spread sauce onto crust.
Sprinkle on cheese, alternating between the parm and mozzarella
Bake at 450 on preheated baking sheet or pizza stone for 8-12 mins.
Let cool before cutting, then stuff yer face with green & white pizza!
