  • Instructions

    1-Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C). If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven to heat up.

  • 2-Prepare Dough: Roll out your pizza dough on a floured surface to your desired thickness.

  • 3-Add Toppings: Brush the dough lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle half of the mozzarella cheese over the dough. Distribute the tuna, cherry tomatoes, red onion, capers, and black olives evenly on top. Season with salt, pepper, and dried oregano. Finish with the remaining mozzarella.

  • 4-Bake the Pizza: Transfer the pizza to the preheated oven (use a pizza peel if using a stone). Bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly.

  • 5-Garnish and Serve: Once done, remove from the oven. Let it cool for a few minutes, then garnish with fresh arugula or basil leaves. Slice and serve warm.

Smart Tips

  • 1-Dough Thickness: For a crisper base, roll the dough thinly. If you prefer a chewy, bread-like crust, keep it thicker.

  • 2-Quality of Tuna: Opt for high-quality canned tuna in olive oil for the best flavor. The olive oil in the can also adds extra richness.

  • 3-Cheese Variations: Experiment with different cheeses like feta, Parmesan, or a smoked cheese for a variation in flavor.

  • 4-Herbal Touch: Add fresh herbs like dill, parsley, or thyme along with the arugula for a fresh, herby flavor.

  • 5-Adding Heat: For a spicy kick, sprinkle chili flakes on top before baking or drizzle with a hot sauce after baking.

  • 6-Pre-Cooking Toppings: Pre-cook any additional toppings that release water (like mushrooms or certain vegetables) to prevent a soggy pizza.

  • 7-Serving Suggestion: Pair this pizza with a crisp, dry white wine or a light beer to complement the flavors of the tuna.

  • 8-Storing and Reheating: Refrigerate leftovers and reheat in a hot oven or toaster oven to retain the crust's crispiness. Avoid microwaving as it can make the crust chewy.
