MAKE pizza dough.
PREHEAT oven to 425F. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets with oil. Cut half of tomatoes in half (leave the rest whole). Finely chop half of the mint leaves and mix with about 1 tsp olive oil.
CUT pizza dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each out into a round on a lightly floured surface. Transfer to baking sheets.
TOP each pizza base with a very thin layer of tomato sauce, spreading right to the edges. Top with cheese slices, sliced and whole tomatoes, and chopped mint. Bake in 2 batches, 12 to 16 min each, or until crusts are golden. Drizzle with olive oil and garnish with remaining mint leaves and freshly ground pepper.
