Fresh Mozzarella Tomato Basil and Mushroom Pizza

Handmade Pizza with Fresh Mozzarella, Tomato, Basil, and Mushroom

This is a simple and tasty pizza with fresh mozzarella.


  • Tomato paste

  • Fresh mozzarella cheese

  • Chopped mushrooms

  • Cherry Tomatoes

  • Garlic

  • Olive oil

  • Oregano

  • Basil

  • White wine

  • Pizza dough (rustic bread recipe)

  • Parmigiano Reggiano

  • Salt (to taste)

  • Pepper (to taste)


Start by preheating your oven to 450-500 degrees, preferably with a pizza stone, for at least 20 minutes.

Next, prep your pizza sauce. Sauté the tomato paste in olive oil to, then when it starts to caramelize, add chopped garlic, basil, and oregano. Deglaze with white wine, season with salt and pepper, and add enough water to bring the sauce to the consistency that you’d like on your pizza.

Next, roll out your dough to the thickness that you’d like, and use a fork to poke holes in the middle of the pizza, where the sauce and toppings will sit.

When that’s done, brush a bit of olive oil over the crust and then add a layer of your tomato sauce (as much or as little as you’d like). Next, add your sliced mozzarella (sliced into medallions), halved cherry tomatoes, chopped mushrooms, and basil, and finish with a bit of grated parmesan cheese.

When your pizza is ready, pop it in the oven for 8-10 minutes (thicker crusts will require a little longer), or until the crust is golden, and the cheese has a nice color. The cooking time will vary based on the thickness of your crust, so it’s best to keep a close eye on it.
