Roasted Garlic Pizza – a simple delicious roasted garlic pizza recipe with heirloom tomatoes and fresh arugula!


  • 1 package pizza dough mix (or other pre-made pizza dough or from-scratch recipe)
  • [note the remaining ingredients are for 1 12″ pizza – if your dough recipe results in more than one pizza, multiply accordingly]
  • 2 heads of garlic – roasted. When time to add to pizza, use small fork to pull out each clove.
  • 1 large heirloom tomato – sliced into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 shallot – sliced in half and layers pulled apart – use smallest first
  • 1 package fresh mozzarella – about 48oz per pizza – depending on how cheesy you want it
  • 1/2 cup arugula
  • 23 Tablespoons of your best olive oil
  • 1/4 Teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Make dough according to applicable instructions.
  2. When dough is ready for toppings, add roasted garlic cloves (use as much or as little as you want – I would recommend using 1 whole head of garlic, but it depends on how garlic-y you want it), mozzarella cheese (break off chunks from large ball and shallots.
  3. Place in oven according to applicable package instructions.
  4. Recommended that toppings bake for approx. 6-7 minutes.
  5. Once baking is complete, broil pizza on high for approx. 3 minutes or until cheese starts to brown and tomatoes are sufficiently roasted.
  6. Remove from oven.
  7. Add arugula, olive oil and kosher salt.
  8. Serve immediately.
