Pizza with tomatoes and basil
This simple and delicious pizza is great for summer days! It uses a simple and quick pizza dough, fresh cherry tomatoes and basil. Check our Easy pizza dough recipe made with best quality pizza flour. This recipe makes 2 pizzas.
cherry or plum tomatoes 200 g
extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
salt for taste
black pepper for taste
handful of fresh basil leaves (eventually you can use dried basil)
1 dairy-free mozzarella (you can choose traditional mozzarella)
Italian organic tomato passata
Use previously prepared pizza dough. (check our recipe)
Heat up the oven to 220C degrees.
Divide the dough in 2 portions. On a floured surfaced, roll the dough. You can choose the shape of your pizza - round or squared.
Add some tomato sauce on the dough, small pieces of cheese (we use vegan mozzarella), and small tomatoes cut on halves, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake it on a large tray (use baking paper) for 10-15 min. Keep an eye on your pizza - it may cook faster or needs a bit more time (depends on the oven). When pizza is almost ready (the dough becomes gold and crispy), tomatoes are roasted) top it with a few basil leaves and leave in the oven for 1-2 minutes longer.
When ready, take it out from the oven, top it with a few more basil leaves and drizzle with olive oil. You can also sprinkle it with some extra dried basil, oregano and rosemary if you like herby flavours.
