Jeff's "Heavenly" Pizza

Ok all of you faithful readers...remember last year when my husband and I went to Park City and we had the best pizza we had ever tasted?  Remember how we endeavored to recreate such pizza in our own home?  Well my loving husband has finally mastered the pesto pizza.  We tested it out on Mom for her birthday and it was a standing ovation all around.  So here we go, we will share our masterpiece with you since you are such loyal and wonderful readers.

Heavenly Pesto Pizza

1 recipe basic pizza dough, found here
3-4 tbsp prepared pesto, storebought or recipe can be found here
1 tomato, diced
fresh mozzarella cheese
3 cloves garlic, minced
fresh basil

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.  Roll out pizza dough to a 12 inch round, and place on a pizza stone coated with cornmeal.  Prebake dough for 10 minutes.  Remove from the oven and spread pesto onto the crust, and then cover with the basil and garlic, and then top with cheese and tomatoes.  Bake again for 20 minutes.
