Pizza Margherita

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Studentchef

This is from Canadian Living Magazine. Alot of it screams Italian to me, simply because it has many of the ingredients that are traditionally associated with Italian cuisine.

Actually it is quite good but a true Margarita pizza does NOT have a tomato base-we were getting ours at Carraba's resteraunt (Italian) and the dough is brushed with extra virgin olive oil and has slices of tomatoes, Mozzerella and basil on it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. On lightly floured surface, roll out pizza dough into 12 inch circle. Transfer it to a pizza stone or pan.
  2. Spread tomatoes over dough, sprinkle with salt, and drizzle with 2 tbsp of the olive oil. Arrange the cheese and olives on top.
  3. Bake in 475 degree F oven, until golden and bubbly, about 15-18 minutes. Sprinkle with basil leaves and drizzle with the remaining 1 tbsp olive oil.
