Pizza:

Chop seven leaves of basil.  Put flour on prep area counter.  Pinch off enough dough to make a pizza about the size of a man’s hand.   Kneed the dough and form a small pizza base.  Brush with olive oil and add basil.  Sprinkle sea salt on it and put on hot pizza stone in oven.   Cook for ten minutes.  At this point turn oven to broil and put wings back in on top shelf.  After 5 minutes remove both.  Drizzle a little olive oil on the pizza and serve.  Toss the wings in the Buffalo sauce and serve.  (To make the Buffalo sauce combine the melted the butter with the Franks.)

Buffalo mozzarella tomatoes:

Slice tomato into flat chunks (see pic at bottom) and add similar size of buffalo mozzarella.  Drizzle with olive oil, add bay leaves to each and dust with sea salt.  I like to let this sit for ten minutes of so before eating.
