This quick and flavorful Anchovy Pizza is one of the best you’ll ever have! Salty anchovies combine with savory pizza sauce, melted cheese, and fantastic toppings to make a homemade pizza that will keep you and your family coming back for more!


  • 12 oz pizza dough (use half of my recipe for 1 pizza, or use store-bought dough)
  • ¾ cup pizza sauce (make mine or your favorite store bought)
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese (grated)
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1 can anchovy fillets (canned, packed in oil)
  • ¼ small red onion (sliced)
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 8 kalamata olives (optional – sliced)


  1. Preheat the oven to 500°F (260°C) or as high as it will go. Dust your baking sheet, pizza pan, pizza stone, or pizza peel with flour or cornmeal.
  2. Punch down your dough, then stretch it into a circle about 12″-14″ in diameter.
  3. 12 ounces pizza dough
  4. Place the pizza sauce on top, followed by the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Place the anchovy fillets on top of the cheese, followed by the sliced red onions and other optional toppings.
  5. Place your pizza pan or pizza stone on the middle rack of your oven and bake at 500°F (260°C) for 8 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly.
  6. When done, remove from the oven. Cut, serve, and enjoy!


Prepare the dough and sauce ahead of time.

Do not roll your dough; instead, stretch it by hand.

Use anchovies packed in oil rather than water.

Bake your pizza in a very hot oven, preferably one that is 500°F (260°C).

Preheat your pizza stone and bake your pizza in the center of the oven.
