More food from our Mario Kart party, I decided since Mario and Luigi are obviously Italian that an Italian dinner went along nicely with the party theme. I love Margherita pizza so decided to give it a try on my own. It was so good, so good that I should have made two!
1 batch pizza dough of your choice (I bought a bag of pre-made dough at WinCo that you can find in their deli section, in between the cheese and lunch meats)
1/4 – 1/3 cup olive oil
1 bag (2 cups) shredded Mozzarella cheese
4 – 6 Roma tomatoes, sliced
several basil leaves, cut into strips
1/2 – 1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 Dust pizza pan with a thin layer of flour or cornmeal then roll dough out over flour/cornmeal into large round and brush generously with olive oil.
2 Spread Mozzarella cheese evenly over dough. Cover cheese with sliced tomatoes then scatter basil strips over tomatoes. Sprinkle Parmesan over top of all.
3 Bake at 400 for about 20 – 25 minutes, until browned and center is set and not doughy.
