Expert Tips

  • Seek out smaller basil leaves for this recipe. If your basil leaves are larger, chop or thinly slice them before placing on pizza.
  • For extra flavor and a beautiful garnish, drizzle with more olive oil and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is vegetarian. Products and ingredient sources can change.
