Simple Margherita Pizza

Simple Margherita Pizza

You will remember that in my recipe on making Quick and Easy Pizza Base (click here for recipe), I said that when you have your bases sorted and you are ready to make your pizza’s, then try to keep it as simple as possible – max 4-5 ingredients (including the base tomato sauce and mozzarella) – well it does not get any simpler than this!

There are no pizza’s better than a simple Margherita if you use the best ingredients.

Traditionally the Margherita is made to resemble the colours of the Italian flag (green, white and red).

  • Green – Basil
  • Red – Tomato/ Neopolitana sauce
  • White – Mozzarella Cheese

RECIPE TIP:  When you assemble the pizza, put the mozzarella cheese BEFORE the neopolitana sauce – WHY you may ask?  Well, if you put the sauce first then the base will get soggy and will not crisp up nicely – this helps particularly if you do not have a pizza oven that goes to 450°C – so if you are using a standard oven, this is the best tip for not having soggy pizza bases.
