Rec: White Clam Pizza For 2

2 cloves garlic -- finely chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
flour -- for sprinkling
1 pound commercially made pizza dough
yellow cornmeal -- for sprinkling
1 cup shredded low-moisture -- whole milk mozzarella
1 cup shucked baby clams or chopped clams -- drained
1/3 cup grated asiago cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried basil

Have on hand a pizza stone and pizza peel, or a large baking
sheet. In a bowl, combine the garlic and oil. Let them sit for
30 minutes. Set the oven at 550F. Put the pizza stone or sheet
into the oven as it heats. On a well-floured surface, hand stretch
out the pizza dough to a 12 inch round. Very carefully remove the
baking sheet from the oven. Sprinkle it with cornmeal. Or
sprinkle a pizza peel with cornmeal. Transfer the dough to the
sheet or peel. Spread the garlic mixture on the dough, leaving
a 1 inch border around the edges. Add mozzarella, clams,
Asiago, and basil, leaving the border bare. Return the sheet
to the oven or slip the pizza off the peel onto the stone. Bake
the pizza for 8 to 10 minutes or until the crust is golden.
Cut into wedges to serve.

Refrigerate remainder
