- 1 pizza dough, homemade or store-bought
- 1/2 cup tomato sauce
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup bell peppers, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced

- 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
- 2 cloves garlic, minced

- Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C) and place a pizza stone or an inverted baking sheet inside to heat.
- Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface to your desired thickness.
- Transfer the dough to parchment paper, which will make it easier to slide onto the hot baking surface.
- Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the dough, leaving a small border for the crust.
- Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the sauce.
- Now, arrange the bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, red onion, and black olives on top of the cheese.
- Drizzle the olive oil over the veggies, and sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
- Transfer the pizza (on the parchment paper) to the hot oven or onto the heated pizza stone or baking sheet.
- Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly.
- Remove from the oven, sprinkle fresh basil leaves over the hot pizza, and let it cool for a minute before slicing.
