MARGHERITA PIZZA RECIPE

Ingredient

▢16 ounces pizza dough store bought or homemade dough ▢½ cup pizza sauce store bought or homemade sauce ▢6 slices fresh mozzarella ▢2-3 tomatoes ▢½ teaspoon pizza seasoning ▢fresh basil ▢olive oil

Step -1

Preheat the oven to 500°F. We like to use a pizza stone and throw this in while the oven is preheating for at least 15 minutes. Make the sauce if going homemade. 

Step -2

Also, make the homemade pizza dough if going homemade. If you are using store-bought for both, you can skip this step.

Step -3

Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface to about 14-15 inches in diameter. **If you want more of a crust, be sure to fold in the outside edges of the pizza dough before adding sauce and toppings.

Step -4

If using a pizza stone, quickly and carefully transfer the dough to your stone, add the sauce (leaving a little around the edges for a crust), cheese slices, tomatoes, and pizza seasonings, and put in the oven.

Bake for about 5 minutes, then rotate the pizza and bake an additional 7-8 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh basil and a light drizzle of olive oil.
