We’ve taken the classic caprese salad and turned it into one of our favorite foods – a pizza. We can guarantee that this quick and easy meal is sure to be a hit at your dinner table.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10-12 minutes

Servings: 2-4


  • 1 readymade rectangle pizza crust (we used our favorite by Brooklyn Bred)
  • 1/2 cup pesto sauce
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 8 slices
  • 3 campari tomatoes, cut into 8 slices
  • Fresh basil, chopped (for topping)
  • Balsamic vinegar glaze (for topping)


Preheat oven to 450°F and move one rack to highest setting.

Place pizza crust on parchment-lined baking sheet and spread with pesto. Arrange cheese slices on pizza and top cheese with tomato slices. Bake on pre-positioned rack until cheese is slightly melted and tomatoes have softened, about 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven.

Top with basil and drizzle with balsamic vinegar glaze.


ORANGE & FIELD TIP: If you would like to brown the cheese a little more, turn on your oven’s broiler and cook until cheese has reached desired doneness. Just be careful not to burn your pizza.
