  • Method: bake
  • Cuisine: Italian



1 Package of pre made pizza dough (I live by Trader Joes)

1/2 Cup of pesto

2 Heirloom tomatoes, sliced

1 Mozzarella ball or mozzarella pearls or burrata or ricotta, just get some cheese on the thing

46 Proscuitto ribbons/slices

5 Fresh Basil leaves, thinly sliced

Balsamic glaze (again, Trader Joes… are you noticing a trend here?) You can be an over achiever and make your own here.


  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. 
  2. Roll and stretch out pizza dough into a rectangle like shape on a nonstick cookie sheet.
  3. Pile dough evenly with pesto, tomato slices, cheese and proscuitto ribbons. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cheesy is melty and golden. Remove pizza from oven and top with basil ribbons and a light drizzle of balsamic glaze.
