Naples Pizza

I had some of the most memorable pizza while Jon and I were in Naples last June. Though I can't replicate the thin sweet chewy dough, this is a good replication of one of my favorite pizzas from there.

1 frozen pizza dough ball (available in the frozen foods section near the frozen bread, in most grocery stores. Meijer has it.)
4 oz. bleu cheese
4 oz. shredded mozzarella
4. oz. Fresh mozzarella
1 sliced roma tomato
4-5 fresh basil leaves
Olive Oil
Garlic Salt
Parmesan Cheese

Let frozen pizza dough thaw and rest.
Roll or stretch out dough to size of your pizza baking sheet.
Roll as thin as possible, but no biggie if you can't get it too thin.

Lay dough on pizza baking sheet and brush on a thin coat of olive oil and sprinkle whole pizza round with garlic salt and parmesan cheese.
Put slices of tomatoes on pizza and then sprinkle shredded mozz, crumbled bleu, and slices of fresh mozzarella on top.
Bake in preheated oven on 400 for 10 minutes.
Take out of oven and add the basil leaves.
Replace in oven and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes or until golden and melty.

Sometimes I turn on the broiler feature to get the cheese on top melting.
