Christian Lacroix

An easy vegetarian dish and a delicious twist on the classic recipe.


  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 15 to 20 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 handfuls fresh mint leaves
  • pizza dough , see link below
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 200 g soft goat cheese , thinly sliced


  • MAKE pizza dough.
  • PREHEAT oven to 425F. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets with oil. Cut half of tomatoes in half (leave the rest whole). Finely chop half of the mint leaves and mix with about 1 tsp olive oil.
  • CUT pizza dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each out into a round on a lightly floured surface. Transfer to baking sheets.
  • TOP each pizza base with a very thin layer of tomato sauce, spreading right to the edges. Top with cheese slices, sliced and whole tomatoes, and chopped mint. Bake in 2 batches, 12 to 16 min each, or until crusts are golden. Drizzle with olive oil and garnish with remaining mint leaves and freshly ground pepper.
