Margherita Pizza

Margherita Pizza

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.
