Not in fact by Mozart as a work, though the individual movements are, modulo editing:
"Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Sonata in F major, K. 547a (Anh. 135) is a sonata in two movements. It was originally published as an original sonata by Breitkopf and Härtel in 1799 but was soon found to be an amalgam of movements culled from other compositions." (from Wikipedia.)
Sometimes a set of 6 variations is found as a third movement of this work in some editions, it seems (K.Anh.138a, Wikipedia article in Spanish here) - the above editions just have 2, however. (This is also mentioned, with further explanation and links, in the Wikipedia article on K. 547a above.)
All 3 movements of the sonata were composed in 1788 (except for the rewritten variation of K.547's variations movement (in the 3rd movement sometimes found) - unclear whether this is a variant by Mozart, or by an editor at Breitkopf?...) - and since the 2nd and 3rd movements are from K.547, a sonata with violin "ad. libitum" where arranging for piano basically means removing the violin part and nothing more (Alfred Einstein's opinion, which I just paraphrase here), otherwise the editor's intervention didn't need to be very much (in reducing K.547 to a piano work.) - Schissel
