  • Ready In

  1. Heat a 10-inch non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese evenly into hot skillet; cook until cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Arrange tomato slices, basil leaves, and fresh mozzarella slices on the melted cheese, leaving space for a "crust" to form; cook until top is bubbling and edges are browned, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Remove skillet from heat and loosen pizza with a spatula. Gently slice pizza onto a cutting board; cool for 1 minute before slicing.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • The crust is delicate and thin, so don't overload with toppings. But do try with other toppings (pepperoni, ham, pineapple, or BBQ chicken).
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Great recipe, I cook it a little longer before adding toppings and finish in the oven. One review called this a "tortizza". That is not correct. Tortiizzas use a tortilla for the crust.
