Fresh Tomato Pizza
Serves: 4
  • 1 ball pizza dough (store bought or homemade)
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • fresh ground pepper, salt and garlic powder
  • 1½ cup fresh diced tomato
  • 4-5 ounces thinly sliced fresh mozzarella, chopped
  • ⅓ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • dried oregano
  1. Preheat a pizza stone in an oven set to 500 degrees for 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, dust the dough with flour and prepare a surface (a cutting board or pizza paddle) to work. I usually dust the surface with cornmeal but flour works too. Work the dough into a round disk -- about 15-inches in diameter. Place on the prepared surface. Stab the dough all over with the fork and then brush with olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle the dough with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  4. Spread the tomatoes all over the prepared dough. Top with mozzarella and then parmesan. Sprinkle with oregano, as desired.
  5. Transfer the pizza to the hot pizza stone.
  6. Bake for 12-16 minutes, or until golden. Remove the pizza from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before cutting with a pizza cutter.
