  • 1/2 ball pre-made pizza dough (enough for 2 people)
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup tomato sauce (like this sauce)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan (see note)
  • 1 cup sliced kalamata olives
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed sliced red onion
  • 3 to 4 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Basil (for topping)
  • Red Pepper Flakes (for topping)


  1. Preheat oven to 450˚ F. Roll the pizza dough out in a rectangle that is roughly 8” by 12”. Transfer to an oiled or parchment covered baking tray.
  2. Spread tomato sauce over crust, enough to cover but leaving roughly a 1/2" border. Brush the border with olive oil, sprinkle with garlic powder and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  3. Spread the olives and onions over the sauce and top with cheese.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until crust is crisp. Remove, cut, sprinkle with basil and serve.


Tips & Tricks: Looking for a solid vegetarian parmesan, I just tried this brand and really enjoyed it. Perfect for the extra cheese touch on this pizza.
