  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 1 pizza 1x


For the Basil Pesto

  • 1 cup Fresh Basil Leaves (Tulsi)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt (To taste)
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper powder
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil (Caprese calls for olive oil. But if you don’t have it, you can use any vegetable oil)


  • 1 Pizza Base (I used the wholewheat kind)
  • 1 fresh Tomato (sliced)
  • 1/4 cup fresh Mozzarella (cubed)
  • Hot pepper flakes (to garnish, if you like it spicy)


For the Pesto

  1. To a blender, basil, salt, pepper & olive oil. Blend to a fine paste.

Making the Pizza

  1. Apply the pesto all over the Pizza base
  2. Arrange tomato slices & mozzarella on it.
  3. At 200 C, put it under the broiler for 4-5 minutes. If you don’t have the ‘broiler’ option, your oven might come with a ‘Grill’ option. Grill it for 4-5 minutes until the cheese starts to melt.

To serve

  1. Slice & serve hot
  2. If you like it spicy, garnish with hot chilli flakes
