My basil finally grew big enough,
so I picked a few leaves,
bought some fresh mozzarella,
made some pizza dough,
And made my favorite pizza! Mmmmmmmm.
Margherita Pizza
1 ball of pizza dough
fresh tomatoes, sliced and seeds removed
fresh mozzarella, sliced
fresh basil leaves, torn
finely grated parmiggiano reggiano cheese
homemade pizza sauce
  1. Cut the dough into 2 equal pieces, and roll out flat. Top with a thin layer of sauce, and top with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and parmiggiano reggiano cheese, if using.
  2. Bake in a 450° over for 12 minutes.
