Gourmet Pizza

Makes 4 servings


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • ¾ cup warm water (100 to 105° Fahrenheit)
  • 1 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Desired toppings


  1. In a food processor combine flour, basil, salt and garlic. Cover and process for 10 seconds or until ingredients are combined.
  2. In a small bowl stir together water and yeast until dissolved. With the food processor running, slowly pour in water-yeast mixture and oil. Process for 30 seconds or until dough begins to form a ball. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough about 2 to 3 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Shape dough into a ball. Cover with a damp towel; let rest for 10 minutes in a warm place.
  3. Place dough ball in a lightly greased bowl, turning to grease surface of dough. Cover and let rest at least 2 hours before rolling out the dough. (For best results refrigerate overnight.)
  4. For pizza, preheat oven to 450°F. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a 12-inch circle. Transfer dough to a baking sheet. Top with desired toppings. Bake for 25 minutes or until outer crust is crisp and cheese has melted.
