  • 1 pound Quick Basic Pizza Dough
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup paper-thin slices of blue potato
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
  • Fresh mozzarella pearls


  1. Position rack in lower third of oven and preheat to 500 degrees. Stretch pizza dough onto a 13-by-18-inch rimmed baking sheet brushed with extra-virgin olive oil, pushing the edges up the sides to create a border; season with salt and pepper.

  2. Toss potato with 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil and rosemary leaves; layer in upper-left corner. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella over remaining dough, inside border. Arrange cherry tomatoes into 7 stripes on dough.

  3. Bake until cheese is bubbly and crust is set, 10 to 12 minutes. Immediately dot mozzarella pearls onto potatoes for stars.
