Top Review by jrivito

This pizza is fabulous! Not greasy, not too cheesy (though I leave out the ricotta because I don't care for it.) The beauty of this pizza is that the fresh taste of the tomatoes and basil shine through. You don't feel like you have a rock in your belly when you finish a few slices. Have made it multiple times, now and I still love it.
