  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 12 oz. pizza dough at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup Mutti Pizza Sauce
  • 125 g fresh buffalo mozzarella sliced
  • 4 - 5 fresh basil leaves


  1. Preheat oven to broil making sure that the rack is about 6 inches from the element.
  2. Grease a 12-inch skillet with some oil using a pastry brush or by pouring the oil onto a paper towel and rubbing the pan.
  3. On a floured surface, press and roll the pizza dough until about 14 inches in diameter.
  4. To place the dough in the skillet, loosely roll the dough onto a floured rolling pin and gently unroll it into the pan (as if it was pie crust). Press the dough to fit the pan making a crust, then using a fork pierce the dough about 10 times.
  5. Over medium-high heat, cover and cook the dough until the bottom of the crust is golden, about 6 minutes. Check the bottom halfway through, and pop any air bubbles that form. Remove from heat.
  6. Spread sauce evenly over the dough (leaving a crust border) and add the mozzarella slices.
  7. Cook the pizza under the broiler until crust and cheese begin to brown, about 5 minutes.
  8. Once cooked, add basil leaves (whole or chopped) on top of the pizza and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.


I usually use bought pizza dough from my local Italian bakery. Since it's usually in the fridge it needs to get to room temperature before use. So at least 2 hours before making the pizza I get it ready by greasing a bowl with a bit of oil, placing the dough inside and covering with a dish towel. Leaving it on my kitchen counter is best, but try and find a warm dry place.
