Heirloom Tomato Pizza



3/4 cup warm water
1 tablespoon low-fat milk
4 teaspoons active dry yeast
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon olive oil, plus extra for baking sheet
2 small zucchinis
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic , chopped
1/2 cup goat cheese
1 cup cherry tomatoes , assorted colors, halved

Cooking Instructions

For the pizza dough:

1. Mix the water, milk and yeast together in a large bowl and stir with a wooden spoon.

2. Add the flour, salt and olive oil. Mix together with a wooden spoon until the dough is too thick and sticky to stir.

3. Spread a little flour on a work surface and place the dough on top of the flour. Knead the dough by pulling the dough from the sides and folding it in the middle. Keep kneading until the dough becomes a smooth ball. If it sticks to the table or to your hands, add a little more flour.

4. Rub a clean bowl with the olive oil and put the dough in it. Cover the bowl with a towel and put it in a warm place. Let the dough rise for about 1 1/2 hours, or until doubled in volume.

5. Punch the raised dough down with your fist. Turn the dough over, form it into a ball again, cover, and let rise for another hour.

6. Heat the oven to 450°F. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin or use your hands to pat the dough into a circle about 12" to 14" across and 1/4"-thick. Place the dough on an oiled baking sheet.

For the topping:

7. Cut the larger tomatoes and zucchini into thin rounds.

8. Sprinkle the garlic and drizzle the olive oil over the rolled dough. Sprinkle the goat cheese on top, leaving the edge of the pizza free. Put the tomato and zucchini slices on top. Decorate with cherry tomato halves and season with salt and pepper.

9. Bake until nicely browned and crispy, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with fresh basil. Cut the pizza into 8 slices.
