Sun-dried Tomato Pizza

Inspiration: Boscos’ Californian Pizza – Che’vre Cheese, Mozzarella, Sun-dried Tomatoes, Fresh Basil, Pine Nuts on Olive Oil Crust…simple & fabulous.

Creation: Sun-dried Tomato Pizza w/ Fresh Basil & Pine Nuts…Gorgonzola & Mozzarella



  • 1 Pre-made Deli Pizza Crust or 1 lb Pizza Dough (if buying dough flour board & roll to 1/2 thick)
  • 3/4 Cup Gorgonzola Cheese – crumbled
  • 2 Cups Mozzarella – fresh & shredded
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sun-dried Tomatoes (I soaked in Olive Oil prior to making pizza….can use jar that is in oil)
  • Pine Nuts – Toasted
  • Basil – fresh & chopped
  • Parmesan for serving – freshly grated


  • Preheat 400 
  • Place crust on baking sheet
  • Brush with thin coat of extra virgin olive oil
  • Bake 5 minutes – allows crust to cook slowly so that it won’t burn & get to hard
  • Top crust with Mozzarella & Goat Cheese
  • Bake 10 minutes – cheese should be a bit browned & bubbly
  • Top with Sun-dried Tomatoes & Fresh Basil – Drizzle LIGHTLY with Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Bake additional 4 minutes  – then Broil for approx. 2 minutes just to brown the cheese nicely

Serve Up:

  • Top with Toasted Pine Nuts
  • Sprinkle w/ desired amount of Parmesan
  • Italian Style – Drizzle one more time extremely lightly with Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Creamy Gorgonzola & Mozzarella with sweet Sun-dried Tomatoes, freshness from basil & toasted pine nuts made this a simple gourmet way to enjoy a favorite at home!

Needless to say…conversation was minimum!
