  • Pre-made pizza dough
  • 10-12 small vine tomatoes, diced
  • 1 teaspoon tomato paste
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 teaspoons shredded parmesan cheese
  • 4-6 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/3 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/3 yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

3. Add tomato paste and saute for another 30 seconds.

5. Remove lid and add oregano, rosemary, and red pepper flakes. Lower to medium-low heat and cook for another 7 minutes with the lid on.
