Tomato and Basil Thin Crust Pizza

(see my pizza dough recipe I used below)

1 12" thin crust uncooked pizza dough
1/2 t. garlic salt
1 1/2 T. butter, melted
2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
2 T. coarsely chopped fresh basil
2 small tomatoes, chopped
2 T. grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Roll pizza crust into a 12" diameter. Mix garlic salt with the butter. Brush the garlic butter all over the pizza crust. Spread half of the mozzarella cheese over the crust. Spread the basil over the cheese. Spread the remaining mozzarella over the basil. Sprinkle the tomato over the cheese. Bake 8-10 minutes (mine was closer to 8 min) or until the surface begins to turn brown. Remove the pizza from the oven and sprinkle the fresh Parmesan over it. Slice into 8 pieces, and serve hot.
