Caprese pizza recipe

This is a traditional Italian pizza that has just three toppings that are the same colours as the Italian flag. The flavours are simple and satisfying and it’s really easy to make.



  • 2 pizza bases
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 200g mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 2 fresh tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 cup basil leaves


Preheat oven to 220°C (200°C fan-forced). Spray 2 pizza trays with canola spray and lay the pizza bases on the trays.

Spread pizza sauce over each base and divide the cheese slices between them.

Arrange sliced tomatoes on top and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the mozzarella cheese is melted.

Scatter basil leaves over the top of pizzas and serve.


  • I used super thin pizza bases for this recipe.
  • A nice variation is to drizzle some good quality olive oil over the top of this pizza and a good grind of black pepper and sea salt.
