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: 15 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins

Ingredients

1 recipe pizza dough

fresh basil

1 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes or 1 package grape, san marzano, cherry, plum or any kind of tomato!

Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 lb lightly salted mozzarella cheese (or water-packed balls of mozz)

Directions

1Heat 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.

2Stretch out your dough on a cornmeal-dusted peel to about 10-12” in diameter

3Using 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.

4Slice the mozzarella over the tomatoes and distribute evenly around the pizza surface.

5Drizzle with Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil and season with salt.

6Slide your pizza onto the stone in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes.

7Remove from the oven and garnish with fresh basil. Serve!
