Call me crazy, but something tells me I ’ m about to send One Direction ’ s Our Moment Eau de Parfum in a new commission. And that commission is called “ out of business. ”
“ She finally referenced pizza, perfume and One focus in the same prison term, ” you say. I know, right ? Took me long enough. But here we are with my latest and most favorite no-sharing-required universe : Bruschetta Pizza with Balsamic Syrup .
affectionate homemade pizza dough is baked and then rubbed with garlic before being sliced and topped with a refreshingly simpleton mix of dice tomatoes, minced garlic and chopped basil. Finish it all off with a drizzle of fresh and lemony balsamic syrup and then tell me you don ’ thymine wish you could bottle the olfactory property wafting from your kitchen.

  • 1 pound boughten or homemade pizza dough

  • cornmeal

  • 2 large garlic cloves

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons

    olive petroleum, divided

  • 2 1/2 cups diced tomatoes

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons chopped clean basil

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons sugar

  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 500ºF.

  • Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface until it is roughly 12 inches wide and 1/4-inch thick. Invert a baking sheet and sprinkle it liberally with cornmeal. Transfer the dough to the baking sheet.

  • Brush the pizza dough all over with a ½ tablespoon olive oil then bake it until it’s golden brown and the crust is crisp around the edges, 10 to 12 minutes.

  • While the dough is baking, mince 1 clove of garlic and add it to a medium bowl along with the diced tomatoes, chopped basil, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and salt and pepper, to taste. Set the mixture aside.

  • Boil the balsamic vinegar and sugar in small saucepan until it has reduced to ¼ cup, about 5 minutes. Set the syrup aside to cool. (See Kelly’s Notes.)

  • Remove the pizza dough from the oven. Slice the tip off of the remaining garlic clove and immediately rub the cutoff end all over the hot pizza dough.

  • Slice the pizza into 6 to 8 slices then spoon the tomato mixture on top. Drizzle the tomato mixture with balsamic syrup, garnish with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.

Kelly’s Notes:

  • The balsamic syrup will thicken as it cools. Once it has cooled completely, it can be poured into a bottle and kept in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

  • If you cook the balsamic vinegar too long, it’ll turn into caramel and then eventually taffy. So when in doubt, undercook it, as it’ll thicken significantly as it cools.
