Place dough on prepared baking pan or pizza stone, brush lightly with garlic olive oil, and arrange a single layer of tomato slices on top. Season with salt and pepper as desired. Sprinkle shredded cheese evenly over pizza. Bake in an oven preheated to 450°F for 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are brown, the bottom is cooked through, and the cheese is melted.
