Provolone, Tomato, and Fresh Basil Pizza

I got this recipe off the back of a package of Provolone Cheese that I recently bought. It was surprisingly quite good. My husband and I both really enjoyed it, while the kids ate it, but I have to admit they weren't quite as thrilled as we were.

3 Tbs. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Homemade or Refrigerated Pizza Dough(I made homemade following the directions that came with my bread machine, super easy and yummy!)
1/4 Cup Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese
120z Sliced Provolone Cheese
5 Roma Tomatoes, Sliced thin
Salt and Pepper
Fresh Basil Leaves, Chopped
Coat a pizza pan with olive oil and spread dough out evenly to all edges of the pan. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and top with the sliced provolone cheese. Place tomatoes on top and sprinkle with salt, pepper and fresh basil. Bake in preheated 425 degree oven until crust is golden brown(about 15-20 minutes)
