Pizza Margherita

"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.

    This was a great recipe. I've been looking for a Margherita pizza like the one we had in Phoenix and this came really close! Hubby loved it but informed me that I accidentally left off the olives (he loves olives and I don't) I used fresh tomatoes and added thinly sliced red onions. Made for PAC 2011. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    Love this classic Italian pizza. My sons had eaten all my mozzarella ball so I had to resort to using shredded mozzarella. The pizza was still great. I used fresh tomatoes on it. Made for ZWT7

    Lovely, simple flavors. I left off the olives for DH, but otherwise made as directed using San Marzano tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. Delightful and delightfully easy!
