Pesto Caprese Pizza

Author: Gaby

Ingredients

  • 1 pound pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup Basil Vinaigrette
  • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup heirloom cherry tomatoes halved
  • handful of fresh basil fried and torn into pieces
  • red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • Pre-heat your oven to 500 degrees. Thirty minutes before cooking the pizza, put your pizza stone in the oven.
  • Stretch out your pizza dough using your hands in a circular motion, then lay it on a flat surface and flatten it out using a rolling pin. If you have a pizza peel, sprinkle some flour on it and place the stretched out dough on the peel. Once your dough is flat and ready to be heated, use a spoon to spread the basil vinaigrette all around the dough leaving a little bit for the crust. Top with the mozzarella and halved cherry tomatoes and pop your pizza peel in the oven and slide it over the stone for 12-15 minutes.
  • Once the pizza is done, remove and top with fried basil, salt, and red pepper flakes. Cut into 6-8 slices and serve immediately.
