  • With a mandoline slicer or knife, slice the tomatoes very thinly and arrange them in colours.
  • Spread the pizza dough, add tomato sauce and mozzarella, and bake for 60-120 seconds at 400°C in a professional pizza oven.
  • Straight away after bake, add the tomatoes arranged by colour. Next, add white cheese cubes, fresh basil leaves and a dash of lemon- and basil-infused olive oil. For a final touch, you can consider adding a few drops of basil pesto.
  • For the basil pesto:
  • Blanch the basil leaves for 30 seconds in simmering water, drain and dip the leaves in a bowl of ice water to stop cooking. Put the drained basil leaves in a blender along with hard cheese of choice, pine nuts, garlic clove and the olive oil. Mix until you reach a nice consistency. Add salt to taste, and more olive oil if necessary. Store in fridge.
