Cheesy garlic pizza

Serves: 12
Cooking Time: 1 hour 15 mins plus extra for dough


  • 80ml olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 quantity basic pizza dough (you can buy this from your local supermarket or make your own batch - recipe above)
  • olive oil, for brushing
  • 250ml (1 cup) Parmesan, freshly grated, plus extra shavings to serve
  • 250ml (1 cup) mozzarella, grated
  • 125ml (½ cup) fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped, to serve



Preheat the oven to 220ºC. Place 2 trays in the oven to heat for 5 – 10 minutes.


To make the garlic oil, place the oil and garlic in a bowl and whisk until well combined. Set aside.


Divide the dough into 12 balls and roll out on a lightly floured surface to 10cm x 30cm ovals.


Brush the hot trays with oil and place a pizza base on each tray. Brush thebases with the garlic oil and top with the Parmesan and mozzarella.


Bake in batches of 2 until the topping is golden and the base is crispy, for about 8 – 10 minutes. Top with the parsley and extra Parmesan to serve.
