Easy White Pizza Recipe

This is the easiest white pizza recipe! Puff pastry gives it a super flaky, delicious crust and it's so simple. Garlicky, cheesy and topped with sliced tomatoes, this is so delish to throw together after a busy day.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed if frozen
  • 2 roma or beefsteak tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 8 ounces freshly grated provolone or mozzarella cheese, or an italian blend
  • 2 ounces freshly grated parmesan cheese, plus more for sprinkling
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the sheet of puff pastry on top. Poke it all over with a fork (this prevents big bubbles!)
  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over low heat. Stir in the garlic cloves and a pinch of crushed red pepper. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until the garlic is sizzling. Let it cool slightly.
  • While it’s cooling, slice the tomatoes. Place the slices on a paper towel and sprinkle all over with salt. Let sit for 10 minutes, then pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Brush the puff pastry all over with the garlic oil. Sprinkle all over with the cheese, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges. Top with the tomato slices. Sprinkle on some pepper and the dried basil. Drizzle a bit more garlic oil on (just a bit!) and sprinkle with more parmesan.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden and puffed and cheesy! Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with parmesan, slice and serve!
