Make pizza like a pro in a flash with the Breville Smart Oven Pizzaiolo. This indoor countertop oven reaches super-hot temperatures, creating the perfect environment for baking Neapolitan-style pizzas. Here we top the dough with tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella and basil for a classic pizza Margherita, but feel free to get creative and prepare your own signature pies. If you don’t have a pizzaiolo, you can use a regular oven: preheat a pizza stone at 500°F (260°C), then bake the pizza for about 8 minutes.


  • 6 oz. (185 g) pizza dough, homemade or store-bought
  • All-purpose flour for dusting
  • 1/2 cup (4 fl. oz./125 ml) tomato sauce, homemade or store-bought
  • 1/4 lb. (125 g) fresh mozzarella cheese, torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup (1 oz./30 g) fresh basil leaves
  • Flaky sea salt for garnish


Preheat a Breville pizzaiolo to 750°F (399°C).

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough into a 10-inch (25-cm) round. Transfer the dough to a floured pizza peel. Spread the tomato sauce evenly on the dough, leaving a 1-inch (2.5-cm) border uncovered. Arrange the mozzarella on top.

Using a pizza peel, transfer the pizza to the pizzaiolo’s pizza stone. Close the oven door and bake until the pizza crust is crispy and golden brown, 2 minutes.

Using the pizza peel, transfer the pizza to a cutting board, top with the basil leaves and sprinkle with flaky sea salt. Cut into slices and serve warm. Makes one 10-inch (25-cm) pizza.
