Margherita Pizza


  • Dough - Purchase some fresh dough from your local pizza shop or make your own. (Seriously‚Ķtake a ride to the pizza shop). Or, locate a recipe for dough on the internet and spend 2 hours of your life that you will never regain‚Ķ
  • 1 can peeled San Marzano tomatoes, drained and coarsely chopped in a food processor
  • 1/4 tsp oregano, crumbled
  • 2 tbls extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and ground pepper
  • 1/2 lb fresh Mozzarella sliced thin
  • 3 to 4 Basil leaves, torn into pieces
  • 1 large garlic clove finely chopped
  • Misc. Pizza stone for the oven. A baking sheet will suffice but the stone makes a huge difference. Also, a pizza peel will help the transfer of the uncooked pizza to the hot stone.
Step 1. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and stretch to fit within the boundaries of the stone or baking sheet.
Step 2. Place pizza stone in the oven at 500 degrees allowing approx. 45 minutes to heat.
Step 3. Stir in the oregano and 1 tbls of the olive oil into the tomato sauce and season with salt and pepper.
Step 4. Transfer to the pizza peel and spread a thin layer of the tomato sauce on the dough. Put mozzarella on next without overlapping slices.
Step 5. Drop small garlic pieces sparingly to taste and drizzle with 1 tbls olive oil, salt and pepper.
Step 6. Bake until the bottom is firm and the cheese is melted, about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and place basil leaf pieces randomly on the pizza. Let stand for 3 minutes and serve.
Serves 2-4
