Tomato & Fresh Mozzarella Pizza

If you’ve never tried a mozzarella and tomato pizza, I guarantee; if you are not lactose intolerant or hate tomatoes, you are going to love it J

What’s not to like; you take the one thing 96% of Americans already consume on a daily basis and add fresh ingredients like mozzarella, fresh tomato and basil, the smooth taste and texture is a match made in pizza heaven.

1 (4-ounce) portion ready made pizza dough, pizza crust or Pillsbury rollout crust
1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
Pizza sauce
2 large roma tomatoes, sliced 1/8-inch thick
8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, patted dry and sliced 1/4-inch thick
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon oregano
Pinch of salt
Fresh basil leaves

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Roll out pizza dough on a lightly floured surface. (It doesn’t have to be perfect)
  3. Coat baking sheet or pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray
  4. Place dough on baking sheet
  5. Brush with olive oil and bake 5 minutes; remove from oven
  6. Sparingly add pizza sauce in a thin layer
  7. Evenly sprinkle pizza crust with salt, black pepper, and oregano
  8. Layer tomatoes and mozzarella cheese on top, sprinkle with a few basil leaves and bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until crust is browned and mozzarella cheese is melted.
  9. Remove pizza from oven, sprinkle with the rest of the basil leaves, slice and serve.
