  • 1 cup pesto
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese grated
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 1/4 cup olives sliced
  • Oregano


  • Preheat the oven at the highest temperature available — at least 450 °F
  • Make sure the pesto you'll use isn't too watery. If you're satisfied with its consistency, spread it on the crust, don't leave anything but the edges of the rust uncovered.
  • Make a layer with the tomato slices and the onion. We recommend you put the onion in the spaces between the tomato slices, instead of on them.
  • Cover everything with the mozzarella cheese. When it melts, it'll form a layer coating the tomato and the onions.
  • Distribute the olive slices all over the pizza. You can just leave them on the cheese or make them sink into the grated mozzarella.
  • Bake in the oven for eight minutes — or until the crust is nicely cooked and the cheese has melted.
  • Season the pizza with oregano, as much as you'd like.
