Pizza Margarita

This is perhaps the most simple and most delicious of all the pizzas I make. Just tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and basil, this pizza is pure and uncomplicated, and was a special request by my ever-so-patient husband (who is willing to taste all my experimental pizzas).

Pizza Margarita

Preheat oven to 500° for one hour, with pizza stone in the oven.

Stretch out one recipe of pizza dough (on floured parchment paper) and spread with freshly sliced tomatoes (or tomato sauce of your choice), slices of fresh mozzarella (home made, of course), and slivers of fresh basil (use it up before the first frost!). Drizzle with olive oil. Slide the whole lot (parchment paper and all) onto a hot pizza stone and bake for 10-15 minutes or until crust is as crisp as you'd like. Drizzle with more olive oil and slice and serve.
