Fresh Herb Pizza
Recipe courtesy of Ree Drummond
Total: 1 hr 45 min
Active: 15 min
Yield: 1 pizza
Level: Easy


1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
2 cups all-purpose flour
Kosher salt
Scant 1/4 cup olive oil (a little less than 1/4 cup), plus more drizzling
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
Freshly ground black pepper
2 mozzarella balls, sliced
1 bunch arugula
1 bunch fresh basil leaves
1 bunch fresh parsley leaves
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Grated Parmesan, for serving


Special equipment: rolling pin

Sprinkle the yeast over 3/4 cup warm (not lukewarm) water in a bowl and leave to sit for a bit.

In a mixer, add the flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and with the mixer running on low speed (with the paddle attachment), slowly pour in the olive oil and keep going until it’s mixed through. Next, pour in the yeast/water mixture and mix until just combined.

Coat a separate mixing bowl with a light drizzle of olive oil, tip the dough in and form it into a ball. Toss to coat the dough ball in the olive oil, then cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rise for at least 1 hour, or up to 3 or 4 days.

Arrange the oven rack in the lowest position and preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. Drizzle a large baking sheet with olive oil.

Roll out the pizza dough as thinly as possible and place it on the baking sheet. Drizzle over some extra-virgin olive oil, sprinkle over some salt and pepper and place the mozzarella slices all over the dough.

Bake until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly, 12 to 15 minutes.

Put the arugula, whole basil leaves and parsley in a bowl and toss with the extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Scatter over the pizza, sprinkle with grated Parmesan and serve.

  2. Hi Ree, I was wondering, I've never seen you use an oven mitt. Have you had a bad experience, or do you just prefer a dish towel. Thank you from Morganton, North Carolina. Love your show.
