Pizza Ingredients

  • 1 Pizza Crust I like Tiseo’s Frozen Pizza Dough
  • 1 ¾ cup Mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes cut into thin rounds
  • 10 Large Basil Leaves
  • ½ cup Pizza Sauce
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese grated

Pizza Sauce Ingredients

  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 ½ tsp oregano
  • ¾ tsp rosemary
  • ½ tsp sage
  • ¼ tsp marjoram
  • ¼ tsp salt


  • Thaw your pizza dough according to package instructions. Flour a working surface. Use a rolling pin to roll out your pizza dough to your desired size. Lay it on a pizza stone or a greased pizza pan.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for pizza sauce.
  • Use a pastry brush or spoon to spread pizza sauce on the pizza dough.
  • Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the pizza dough. Then layer the sliced roma tomatoes on top.
  • Bake the pizza in the oven according to pizza dough instructions. I baked mine at 450 degrees for 18 minutes.
  • When pizza is done baking, remove from the oven.
  • Melt the butter in a microwave safe dish. Use a pastry brush to brush butter on the crust of the pizza. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top of the crust.
  • Lay fresh basil leaves on top of the baked pizza. Enjoy!
