Margherita Pizza

I spent a summer studying in Athens while I was in law school. Around the corner from where we lived was a little pizza shop that specialized in hemp dough. I always stuck with the good old fashioned white dough made in to a margherita pizza. Margherita is still my favorite pizza.

Margherita Pizza

Favorite Pizza Dough recipe
2 roma tomatoes
1 clove garlic, diced
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mozzarella cheese (as much or little as you like)
Parmesan cheese (as much or little as you like)
Basil, chopped fresh or dried

In a small bowl, combine diced tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, and salt. Set aside. Make your pizza dough. Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees. Spread dough on to pizza pan or peel. Brush dough with olive oil. Top dough with mozzarella cheese and then tomato mixture. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake pizza for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. After pizza is out of the oven, sprinkle on basil and Parmesan cheese.
