Preheat the oven to 400°F.
As with any pizza, you can make this using a pizza stone, a pizza pan, or even a sheet pan (affiliate links). I’ve made it each way. If using a pizza stone, place it in the oven as it heats up for at least 15 minutes.
Roll or spread the pizza dough until it fits the baking pan, stone or tray. Using the back of a spoon, spread the tomato sauce evenly across the surface of the dough, keeping a 1/2-inch edge.
Drizzle a bit of olive oil over the sauce and layer the tomatoes, Mozzarella, and minced garlic. Bake for 14-17 minutes, or until the crust is lightly browned and the cheese is bubbling.
Remove the pizza from the oven and top with fresh basil leaves and freshly ground pepper.
