Why I Love This Recipe

“Inherent Vice” combines mystery, conspiracy, comedy and a ‘70s psychedelic vibe… and our interpretation is a great recipe for pizza. .

The film follows a pot smoking private detective named Larry “Doc” Sportello through a bizarre investigation involving his ex-girlfriend and her lover. Zany supporting characters abound, many of whom appear in a scene that mimics the Last Supper, but with pizza as the main course. While the movie has you guessing at every turn, you can count on this great recipe.

Ingredients You'll Need

12 inches thin pizza crust
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 -4 large basil leaves, cut into strips
2 small tomatoes, cut thinly
4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Drizzle the olive oil over the pizza shell. Use a brush to spread it around and make sure to get the crust!

Next, disperse the finely chopped garlic evenly.

Spread the mozzarella cheese throughout the top, but keep it thin.

Place the thinly sliced tomatoes across the entire pizza.

Lightly salt and pepper the tomatoes with the kosher salt.

Spread the fresh basil leaves, making sure to get some on tomatoes and on just the cheese itself.

Cook the pizza in the oven for about 9-10 minutes, or until sufficiently crispy and melted to your liking.

Add a little Parmesan cheese and (optional) crushed red pepper and enjoy!
