Garlic and Fresh Herbs Thin Crust Pizza

Garlic and Fresh Herbs PizzaI often use fresh garlic in my pizza topping and this one is no exception. The following thin crust pizza is light and is a perfect candidate for breakfast. The herbs used for the topping can be localized as per your preferences. When used in a generous quantity, garlic infuses strong flavor in the recipe, so make sure you're using just the right proportion of the same. Because the topping is not rich and heavy, avoid going for a thick crust. You can change the size of the crust though I'll recommend sticking with a standard medium-pan sized base. Leftovers of this pizza cannot be refrigerated. It's time to quickly make this delicious, fulfilling, and simple pizza for our loved ones. Feel free to experiment with the herbs mix.
