Roasted garlic and tomato pizza

I looooove grape tomatoes. I just like them because they are tiny, and you can eat them in a mouthful or chop them and they are so cute.
I made up this roasted garlic and tomato pizza using Pillsbury's pre-made pizza dough (so convenient!).
1 whole head garlic
2 spoonfuls olive oil
1 package Pillsbury pizza dough
1 pint grape tomatoes sliced tiny
Half a package Kraft pizza cheese combination (or as much cheese as you want)
Fresh basil leaves

Roast the head of garlic by slicing off the top and sprinkling it with olive oil and some salt wrapped in foil, put it in the oven for about 50 minutes at 400 degrees F.
Roll out pizza dough in a baking sheet according to instructions, squeeze the roasted garlic (be careful that it cools a little bit, you don't want to burn your hands), brush with some olive oil and sprinkle the tomatoes, basil leaves and cheese. Bake in the oven at 425 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Delicious and garlicky!
