Margherita Pizza

     Hello!  It's Recipe Tuesday and today's recipe for margherita pizza was inspired by a recipe from the Pampered Chef "It's Good For You" cookbook.  This is a super quick and easy recipe that uses many items you most likely already have in your pantry.  Aaron and I make sure we always have a tube of pizza dough and tomatoes in the fridge so we can make this on a lazy evening when we don't feel like cooking a big dinner ;)

Margherita Pizza
  • Refridgerated pizza dough
  • 3-4 tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp basil (or 2 tbsp fresh basil)
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Shredded mozeralla cheese
1.  Unroll pizza dough on large cookie sheet pre-bake for 5 minutes according to package directions (usually 400 degrees).

2. Meantime, in small bowl wisk together vinegar, olive oil and spices; set aside.  Chop tomatoes into 1/2" pieces.

3.  Spread vinegar mixture over cooked pizza dough with pastry brush.  Sprinkle cheese and tomatoes over pizza.

4.  Bake pizza for 10-12 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and crust is golden brown.
