The Margherita pizza is surely the most popular and well known recipe there is. Its age old origins speak of a recipe that has stood the tests of time. Still today it is a favorite among restaurant goers. I love the combination of ripe plump tomatoes, good quality mozzarella cheese and fresh basil leaves.
These are the same ingredients that inspired me to create my Margherita with a twist. The best thing of the recipe is that some components are home made. It is your choice if you want to use store bought tomato sauce or basil pesto. I am sure the outcome will still be great. But if you want to impress, dust off your aprons and start cooking!
I will be using the simple pizza dough recipe for my base, covered in a fresh home made tomato and chili sauce, topped with sun dried tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and home made basil pesto. Enjoy!
