Notes

*This is my favorite dough recipe.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Roll your dough flat onto a greased cookie sheet.
  3. Fold up 1/2 inch over each edge, to create a sort of "crust."
  4. Combine the olive oil and tube basil in a small bowl. 
  5. "Paint" on the pesto with a basting brush so that the dough is covered evenly.
  6. Cover the basil and dough with the parmesan/romano cheese.
  7. Thinly slice your strawberries, and layer them systematically over the dough/cheese.
  8. Lay a few basil leaves & goat cheese crumbles over the top (optional).
  9. Bake for 28 minutes, or until the edges are slightly browned.
  10. Slice...and devour!
