Bruschetta Pizza

Bruschetta Pizza

Pizza is a blank canvas in which to experiment with flavors.  This flavor combination is bright and zesty.  The pizza dough is chewy and crispy.  The cheese is creamy and the roasted garlic is sweet and mild.  The bruschetta gives the pizza an amazing tomato flavor with bursts of basil and balsamic vinegar.  It’s easy to make, which is perfect for a weeknight meal or a weekend indulgence.  Give it a try!
