Heirloom Tomato Pizza Sauce: Take your pizza night up a notch or two with some goddess-like Mediterranean vibes. Makes 2-3 Small Pizzas.


  • 1 jar Sonoma Gourmet Heirloom Tomato Pizza Sauce
  • 2 ounces Sonoma Gourmet Sautéed Garlic Olive Oil
  • 6 ounces pre-cooked and chopped chicken breast (we grilled ours the day before with olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper)
  • 1 small jar pitted kalamata olives
  • 4 ounces fresh feta cheese
  • 4 ounces shredded cheese (we used a combination of Parmesan, Asiago, Fontina and Provolone)
  • 1 handful cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small red onion


  1. Make or purchase your favorite pizza dough. Although it’s not difficult to make, we’ll often buy our dough from our local pizzeria or bakery. It’s inexpensive, super easy, and a great way to support local businesses. If your dough is frozen, be sure to unthaw it in the fridge overnight before warming it up to room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Prep toppings. Chop cooked chicken, half cherry tomatoes, thinly slice red onion and separate slices into circles.
  3. Heat the oven to 500 degrees F or as high as your oven will go. Use a pizza stone if you have one, otherwise a pizza pan or thick pan will do.
  4. Dust your hands in flour, and separate dough into 2-3 smaller balls of dough.
  5. Carefully stretch out dough balls until they’re nice and thin. Perfect circles are nice, but we encourage all different shapes of pizza.
  6. Sprinkle cornmeal on a pizza peel or cutting board, then transfer one prepared pizza dough round to it. The corn meal will allow you to easily slide your pizza into the oven like a pro.
  7. Brush Sautéed Garlic Olive Oil on dough, making sure to evenly coat the outer 1 inch that will become the crust.
  8. Using the back of a spoon, apply a layer of Pizza Sauce to the dough.
  9. Sprinkle shredded cheese over sauce and lightly season with salt and pepper.
  10. Add chicken, olives, cherry tomatoes, and red onion. Crumble feta on top of all ingredients.
  11. Bake pizza in the oven, one at a time, until the crust is browned and the cheese begins to brown, about 10 minutes.
  12. Remove from oven, slice and serve.
