Sheet-Pan Caprese Pizza


This light and flavorful caprese pizza is ready when the tomatoes are just heated through and the mozzarella cheese is slightly melted. If you want a little more on this pizza, it'd be delicious with a few slices of prosciutto. Chef tip: let your dough come up to room temperature before you stretch it--it'll make it much easier to work with.

1 15x10-inch pizza


  • 1 pound fresh prepared whole-wheat pizza dough

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper, divided

  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced

  • 2 cups baby heirloom tomatoes, halved or quartered

  • ½ cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic glaze


  1. Place a 17- x 12-inch baking sheet in oven; preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Stretch pizza dough into a 15- x 10-inch rectangle on a large sheet of parchment paper. Brush dough evenly with oil; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Transfer to hot baking sheet in preheated oven. Bake until crust starts to brown, about 10 minutes.

  2. Remove from oven; top evenly with cheese and tomatoes. Return to oven; bake at 450 degrees F until cheese just melts, about 2 minutes.

  3. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with basil and remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper; drizzle with glaze. Slice into 6 pieces.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
