I was craving pizza and wanted something a little different so I decided to make this Pizza with Black Olives and Capers. I often have black olives on my pizza but this is the first time I add capers to it.

To make this pizza recipe as easy as possible I suggest you use refrigerated pizza dough. But if you are in the mood and like to make your own, check out my Homemade Pizza Dough & Sauce recipe. You will need more time than listed below but might taste a little better.

You can also use a premade pizza crust that doesn’t require any kneading or manipulation. All you need to do is add the toppings and bake it in the oven. Sure doesn’t get any easier than that!

If you don’t eat capers very often keep in mind that they are pretty salty. You may want to use fewer capers if this might be an issue for you.

I certainly wouldn’t add more than the two tablespoons I list on the recipe card. If Black Olives and Capers isn’t your thing, I suggest you try my Delicious Mexican Pizza.
