A simple, delicious Caprese pizza recipe celebrating all things fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella! Detailed recipe/photos included.


  • 1 pizza crust, either homemade or storebought
  • 2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes, halved (**see note below**)
  • fresh mozzarella, torn into small pieces
  • handful of fresh basil, torn into small pieces or julienne


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees (or the temperature specified on your pizza crust, if storebought).
  2. Lay your pizza crust on a floured work surface. Lay the halved tomatoes evenly across the crust. Top with your desired amount of mozzarella cheese.
  3. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 12-16 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown. (Or you can bake it on a pizza stone, following the manufacturer’s instructions for cooking temperatures/times.) Remove pizza and let cool for 5 minutes before slicing. Garnish with the torn fresh basil and serve immediately.
