Prepare your pizza dough ahead of time. Our guide to making the perfect Classic Pizza Dough covers everything you need to know.
For the sauce for this pizza, we recommend preparing our easy Classic Pizza Sauce. With a hint of garlic, salt and basil, it's the ideal pizza sauce that will help to bring out the flavours in the other ingredients used here.
Using a small amount of flour, dust your Ooni pizza peel. Stretch the pizza dough ball out and lay it out on your pizza peel. With a large spoon or ladle, spread an even layer of your tomato sauce over the base. Top with your torn mozzarella, followed by a few generous dollops of ricotta. Finally, add your halved cherry tomatoes.
Slide the pizza off the peel and into your oven. Cook for 1-2 minutes, making sure to turn the pizza regularly for an even cook.
Once cooked, remove the pizza from the oven and finish with a seasoning of salt, pepper, and a couple of fresh basil leaves. Serve immediately!
