Bruschetta pizza:

  3. Bake for about 11 minutes or until the crust is golden and cheese is melted.
  4. If you feel ½ cup mozzarella cheese is not enough, add another ½ cup of mozzarella cheese.
  5. Meanwhile get the topping for bruschetta ready.
  6. Chop garlic cloves. Heat 1.5 tbsp oil in pot and to it add chopped garlic cloves. Saute until fragrant. Transfer the cooked garlic to a bowl. To it add tomato, basil, salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar. Toss it together and taste and adjust any seasoning if needed.
  7. Once the pizza is cooked, top it off with this mix leaving out the water that may have escaped from tomatoes.
  8. Top it with balsamic glaze and serve immediately.
Balsamic Glaze:
  1. In a pot add balsamic vinegar and sugar and cook it until it reduces to half and thickens a bit.
