Farmer’s Market Pizza

Sometimes simple is best.

Meet the Farmer’s Market pizza – more of a concept than a step-by-step recipe, this pizza celebrates simplicity and fresh ingredients. It’s a perfect way to make use of fresh cherry tomatoes, which is what we did using a mix from our haul at the local farmer’s market and our own backyard garden.

The fresh tomatoes and basil are a match made in heaven with the fatty, salty crisp bits of prosciutto. Drizzle with a bit of lemon and olive oil or in an indulgence balsamic glaze for a refined weeknight dinner.


  • Prep: ~10 minutes
  • Cooking:~ 15 minutes

Grocery List

  • ~ 1 pound of pizza dough
  • ~1 cup of diced cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup of ricotta cheese

  • Then top with fresh tomatoes.
  • Sprinkle the top with shaved parmesan and layer on the slices of prosciutto.
  • Place the pizza dough on a pizza stone or pan, and bake for about 12-15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven top with fresh chopped basil and drizzle on balsamic glaze. Let cool before slicing. Serve and enjoy!
