Expert Tips

  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder can be substituted for the roasted garlic in the tomato mixture and 1 teaspoon garlic powder can be substituted for the roasted garlic in the butter mixture.
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese can be substituted for the fresh mozzarella cheese, and this pizza will still taste great.
