Classic Margherita Pizza
About Margherita Pizza
I think everyone loves a good classic margherita pizza, there is something about the simple fresh tomatoes, mozzarella.and basil on the perfect crisp crust that is just heaven. I only make this pizza with fresh tomatoes and basil from my garden and fresh mozzarella, but if you do not have the time or the option to do so you can use store bought pizza crust, tomatoes, basil and packaged mozzarella cheese. Just remember to keep it simple and as fresh as you can that is what makes a margherita pizza so good
