|Garlic before baking|
1 uncooked pizza dough (if you want to make your own dough, follow this link to my calzone recipe, and follow the directions for the dough: Pizza dough )
1/2 c. Parmesan, shredded
1 wedge Cambozola cheese (or any blue cheese or Gorgonzola will do)
Preheat oven to 350 F.

Cut off the top of the garlic bulb. De-husk around the outside of the bulb, then put in a pie dish. Drizzle with olive oil then sprinkle with salt. Cover with tin foil and bake 40-45 minutes, until tender and mushy.
When the garlic is almost done baking, roll out the dough like you would for pizza, put on a pizza baking sheet. Brush with olive oil, and sprinkle with the basil and Parmesan.

When the garlic is done, put in the pizza dough and bake until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes.

Next time I think I will use a stronger cheese like Gorgonzola with the garlic to see how the flavor changes. This was definitely a crowd pleaser, and there were no leftovers.
