Pizza della Casa

Pizza Della Casa is Pizza of the House.  This is my favorite version…’s basically a Pizza Margherita with fresh grape tomatoes, arugula and grated pecorino cheese.  It’s amazing!



Pizza Dough (See recipe)

1 Cup Grape Tomatoes, Sliced in Half & 1 Tsp. Salt

4 oz. Fresh Mozzarella, Sliced Thin

2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

½ Cup Arugula & ½ Cup Grated Pecorino Cheese



Split pizza dough into 2 equal parts. Save one for another meal or double the rest of the ingredients and make 2 pizzas. Place pizza dough on a well floured surface and stretch into a round shape, rotating dough as it is being pressed until it is stretched into a 12” circle.  Place dough in a well greased baking pan.  Spread the grape tomatoes on the pizza and season with salt.  Top with the sliced mozzarella and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.  Bake in a preheated convection oven at 425 degrees for 9 minutes, or in a regular oven until golden brown (approx. 12-15 minutes).  Remove from the oven, top with the arugula and grated pecorino cheese.  Slice and serve immediately.  Note: If using a baking stone – preheat the stone for approx. 30 minutes in a 400 degree oven.  Place the dough on a floured pizza peel (instead of the baking pan), and top as indicated above.  When ready, place the pizza on the pizza stone and bake for 10-12 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the crust begins to brown.  Remove from the oven, top with arugula and grated pecorino cheese & enjoy!
