Shape the pizza dough to a 12" round and transfer to a pizza peel or parchment paper heavily dusted with semolina or cornmeal. Brush with most of the garlic oil, including the outer crust. Layer the tomato slices over the crust and top with mozzarella. Sprinkle with basil then carefully slide the dough onto the hot stone. Bake for directed amount of time per pizza dough instructions, until the crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Let set for 5 minutes before slicing.
