Margherita Pizza

What do we have here? Only the most popular food ever created - the Margherita pizza. You know what we’re dealing with: bread, cheese, sauce. The makeup is simple, yet the final dish is indisputably supreme. You’ve probably had it a million times, except now you get to make it yourself.

Prep Time15 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time25 mins

Ingredients

 1 recipe pizza dough
 fresh basil
 14.50 oz Colavita Diced Tomatoes
 Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 1 lb lightly salted mozzarella cheese (or water-packed balls of mozz)

Directions

1

Heat the oven to 500 degrees. If using a pizza stone, allow the stone to heat up along with the oven for a half hour before baking on it.

2

Stretch out your dough on a cornmeal-dusted peel to about 10-12” in diameter

3

Using a spoon, dollop the crushed tomatoes directly from the can onto the dough. If using whole tomatoes, give them a whirl in your food processor and then spoon onto the dough.

4

Slice the mozzarella over the tomatoes and distribute evenly around the pizza surface.

Drizzle with Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil and season with salt.

6

Slide your pizza onto the stone in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes.
