I really like garlic, but for some people my recipe may be too much garlic.
I have never tasted a pizza made in a brick oven. Your oven looks great!
Another idea for fresh basil is to make Bruschetta. I use 1 French baguette or Italian bread. I want to try and make my own Italian bread soon.
The recipe for the Tomato and Basil for the Bruschetta I have if anyone is interested is.
about 7 plum tomatoes
3 cloves garlic (or to taste)
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon (your favorite balsamic vinegar)
8 fresh basil leaves
Fresh ground pepper
I use a food processor, but it can be done by hand.
Cut French baguette or Italian bread into slices
cut whole garlic in half and rub over one side of bread
brush with extra olive oil. Put the olive oil side down in a 450 degree oven
toast until golden brown
You can directly put tomato, garlic and basil mixture on bread after baking or let each person put their own on. Should be served warm.
