Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat it to 500°F.
Meanwhile, roll out the pizza dough on a floured counter until it’s about 1/4″ thick. Transfer it to a floured pizza peel (or use cornmeal) and then top with olive oil, sauce, salt and pepper, cheese and all the remaining toppings except the basil.
When the oven’s preheated, slide the pizza onto the stone and let it cook for 5 minutes. If the dough appears to be sticking to the peel, use a metal scraper to gently slide it off and onto the stone.
Once the pizza is cooked and the cheese is bubbly, use a wooden spoon to slide it onto a plate or cutting board. Sprinkle with basil and enjoy!
