Pizza with Gouda Cheese & Cherry Tomatoes

Today, we’re thrilled to combine cherry tomatoes, creamy gouda cheese, and low moisture mozzarella for a simple, yet delicious pizza.

For this pizza, we used Mutti Pomodoro Cherry Tomatoes, a premium quality tomato brand from Italy, known for its robust and rich tomato flavor. These cherry tomatoes add a burst of sweetness and acidity to the pizza. Gouda, on the other hand, is a rich and creamy cheese originating from the Netherlands. Its nutty and slightly sweet profile forms a delightful contrast with the bright and juicy cherry tomatoes. The pairing of gouda with low moisture mozzarella brings about a firm texture that perfectly accommodates the cherry tomatoes and its juices.

All in all, these ingredients come together to craft a pizza that is simple, yet bold and utterly delicious!

Servings 2 people


  • Outdoor Pizza Oven, Pizza Steel, or Stone (if using a home oven)
  • 1 Pizza Peel
  • 1 sauce ladle
  • 1 wooden chopping board or peel for prep and serving


  • 1 pizza dough ball
  • 1 can cherry tomatoes we used Mutti Cherry Tomatoes
  • Low moisture mozzarella cheese
  • Gouda cheese
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  • Prepare Dough: Follow any of our dough recipes. You will need to prepare the dough at least 24 hours ahead of time.
  • Prepare Cheese: Tear the mozzarella into medium-sized pieces, and shred the Gouda. Once completed, set aside.
  • Prepare Cherry Tomatoes: For the canned cherry tomatoes, empty them into a bowl and proceed to crush some of them to form a sauce. Ensure that you leave a few tomatoes whole to create texture and visual appeal. Add ½ teaspoon of salt and mix thoroughly
  • Preheat Oven:
    If using an outdoor pizza like an Ooni pizza oven, aim for a temperature of 450-500°C at the center of your pizza stone. Use an infrared thermometer to ensure accuracy. It should take around 25-30 minutes to reach temperature.
    For a home oven, using a pizza steel or stone, place the stone or steel inside the oven and preheat to the highest temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  • Prepare Base: On a lightly floured surface, stretch out the dough by hand according to the steps outlined in our dough recipe. Once you're happy with the shape of the base, lightly dust your pizza peel and transfer the dough onto the peel.
  • Assemble Pizza: To assemble the pizza, begin by spreading a ladle of sauce in a circular motion, starting from the center of the dough. Next, distribute the low moisture mozzarella and gouda generously over the sauce, but be careful not to go too overboard! Scatter 6 – 8 whole cherry tomatoes across the base and follow up with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
  • Bake Your Pizza:
    If you're using an outdoor pizza oven, launch the pizza into the oven and bake for 60-90 seconds. Keep an eye on the pie and rotate every 10-15 seconds to ensure even cooking and to avoid burning.
    For a home oven with a pizza steel or stone, the bake time should be around 7-10 minutes.
  • Serving: Once done, remove the pizza from the oven and place it on a serving board. Now it's time to enjoy your pizza with gouda cheese and cherry tomatoes!
