I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Fresh Mozzarella & Tomato Pizza
...in your mind.
Fresh Mozzarella & Tomato Pizza

Fresh Mozzarella & Tomato Pizza

Serves 6 as an appetizer - Also referred to as a ’Margherita" pizza (but different from the Margarita drink) this is easily on of my favorites. The fresh mozzarella makes it the bizzle. The quantities below will make a 10-inch pizza, or 2 of the smaller appetizer sized ones.


  • 1-10" ready made pizza crust - like Boboli
  • Fresh Mozzarella, sliced 1/8" thick
  • 3-4 Roma tomatoes, sliced 1/8" thick
  • Fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic


  1. Preheat oven to 425
  2. Put tomatoes in bowl with olive oil & garlic, mix well
  3. Put tomatoes on crust & cover with mozzarella (NOTE: Do not cover too perfectly - you want some of the tomatoes showing through)
  4. Top pizza with some of the basil leaves
  5. Bake approximately 12-15 minutes
