Cook's Tips: This recipe can be made on the Classic Round Stone. Roll pizza crust to a 12-inch circle; proceed as recipe directs.
There's no need to peel garlic cloves before pressing when using the Garlic Press. When cloves are pressed, the garlic flesh gets forced through the holes, while the papery skin stays in the hopper.
