3 bell peppers: 1 red,1 orange, 1 yellow
½ small red onion
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
¼ cup chopped fresh basil leaves
3 Tbsp olive oil, divided
Salt and pepper
1 garlic clove, chopped fine
1 (8-oz) portion uncooked pizza dough
2 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced


Preheat the oven to 450°F. Thinly slice the peppers and onion. Toss with basil and parsley in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix garlic with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil.

On a lightly floured surface, shape pizza dough ball into a 12- to 14-inch circle. Place dough on the back of a lightly floured sheet pan. Using a pastry brush or your fingers, brush the garlic and oil mixture on the dough, leaving a ½-inch border. Cover pizza dough loosely with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place (85°F) for 15 to 20 minutes.

Lay the sliced mozzarella on top of the oiled dough. Spread the pepper mixture on top of the cheese. Carefully transfer dough to the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until crust is golden.
